  1. Inflammation of the mucous membrane in the bronchial tube. Or a combination of the three.
  2. The bronchial muscle next to each tube contracts causing a stifling or spasm and the inability to breathe deeply and easily.
  3. Accumulation of mucous in the bronchial tube.

Tightness in the chest, cough and periodic bouts with breathing difficulty. In more serious cases inhalers and extra oxygen are necessary to assist breathing.
