Asthma is a disorder of the passage of air through the respiratory tract, particularly in small-calibre bronchial tubes. It causes difficulty breathing and the patient feels like they are drowning and must increase their effort in an attempt to breathe better.

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways that results in variable airflow obstruction. It often changes throughout the day (it can get worse at night) and improves with treatment and then reappears later.

The illness is basically caused by an inflammatory mechanism.
