Asthma
Asthma is a chronic disease of the airways in the lungs. These airways are also known as bronchial tubes. In the case of asthma, chronic means that it never goes away. Asthma can be very serious. There is increasing evidence that, if left untreated or improperly treated, asthma may cause a long-term decline in lung function.

Asthma is one disease that has two main components occurring deep within the airways of the lungs:

  • Airway Constrictionoccurs when the muscles around the airways in the lungs begin to squeeze or tighten. This is called "bronchoconstriction or bronchospasm,” and can make it hard to breathe air in and out of the lungs.
  • Airway Inflammationis when the airways of the lungs are inflamed and become more swollen and irritated. Inflammation can reduce the amount of air that you can breathe in and out of your lungs. In some cases, the mucus glands in the airways produce excessive, thick mucus, further obstructing the airways.
  • Airway constriction and inflammation together cause narrowing of the airways which can result in wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, or shortness of breath. In people with asthma, the airways can be inflamed even when there are no symptoms present.
