Asthma (AZ-ma) is a chronic (long-term) lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways. Asthma causes recurring periods of wheezing (a whistling sound when you breathe), chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing. The coughing often occurs at night or early in the morning.

Bronchial asthma acute exacerbation is actually another term for a chronic asthma attack. During bronchial asthma acute exacerbation  bronchial tubes tighten instantly and make it very hard for the air to flow through them. This is a very difficult situation because a person suffering from the attack cannot breathe, and can enter a stage of shock.

Many things are considered a trigger for a bronchial asthma acute exacerbation. These things are allergens (pet hair, pollen, smoke, dust etc), air pollution and air toxins, hard physical activity and stress and anxiety.

Bronchial asthma is a disease caused by increased responsiveness of the tracheobronchial tree to various stimuli. The result is paroxysmal constriction of the bronchial airways. Bronchial asthma is the more correct name for the common form of asthma. The term 'bronchial' is used to differentiate it from 'cardiac' asthma, which is a separate condition that is caused by heart failure. Although the two types of asthma have similar symptoms, including wheezing (a whistling sound in the chest) and shortness of breath, they have quite different causes.
