How the Lungs Work - What Breathing Does for the Body

respiratory system 

Breathing involves two phases: breathing in and breathing out. Your lungs deliver oxygen and remove carbon dioxide from your blood in a process called gas exchange. Gas exchange happens in the capillaries surrounding the alveoli, where the oxygen that is breathed in enters the circulatory system and carbon dioxide in the blood is released to the lungs and then breathed out. If you have problems breathing, gas exchange may be impaired, increasing the risk of serious health problems.

How the Lungs Work - How Your Body Controls Breathing

respiratory system 

The body’s muscles and nervous system help control your breathing. The lungs are like sponges; they cannot move on their own. Muscles in your chest and abdomen contract, or tighten, to create space in your lungs for air to flow in. The muscles then relax, causing the space in the chest to get smaller and squeeze the air back out. Your breathing usually does not require any thought, because it is controlled by the autonomic nervous system, also called the involuntary nervous system.

Asma – Causas

Se desconoce exactamente qué produce el asma, y las causas pueden variar de una persona a otra. A menudo, el asma es el resultado de una fuerte respuesta del sistema inmunológico a un alérgeno en el medioambiente. Por ejemplo, la exposición a un alérgeno en el medioambiente, como la ambrosía, puede hacer que sus vías aéreas reaccionen fuertemente. Es posible que otras personas expuestas al mismo alérgeno no reaccionen en absoluto, o que su respuesta sea diferente. La razón por la que una persona reacciona a una exposición, mientras que otras no lo hacen, no se entiende por completo, aunque se lo puede explicar parcialmente por medio de los genes.
