The asthma is a chronic inflammatory lung disease of the airways, characterized by difficulty in breathing due to reduction or blockage of airflow, as well as wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, tightness in the chest and often accompanied by extreme symptoms of anxiety due to inability to breathe. The onset of asthma is linked to genetic and environmental factors and its increase in recent years is mainly due to increased pollution of big cities. Asthma is manifested by attacks of shortness of breath due to overproduction of mucus in the airways and contraction of airway smooth muscle, with consequent reduction of its diameter (bronchospasm).
