Understanding the airways and the lungs The two lungs are found in the chest - one on the right side and one on the left side.

They are separated by the heart, which lies in between them. Air that we breathe enters the nose, flows through the throat pharynx and voice box larynx and enters the windpipe trachea. The trachea eventually divides into two parts called bronchi. The right main bronchus bronchus is the word for one of the bronchi supplies the right lung; the left main bronchus supplies the left lung. These bronchi then go on to divide into smaller bronchi. Eventually, the bronchi become known as bronchioles - the smallest air tubes in the lungs.

This system of air tubes can be thought of as an upside down tree, with the trachea being the main trunk and the bronchi and bronchioles being the branches. The medical term for all the air tubes is the respiratory tract. At the end of the smallest bronchioles are alveoli.

Alveoli are tiny sacs that are lined by a very thin layer of cells. They also have an excellent blood supply.

The tiny alveoli are the place where oxygen enters the blood and where carbon dioxide CO2 leaves the blood. What are the causes of wheezing? There are many possible causes. Below is a brief overview of the more common and important causes. Asthma Asthma is a condition that affects the smaller airways bronchioles. From time to time the airways narrow constrict due to bronchospasm described earlier.

Chronic bronchitis and emphysema commonly occur together. The term COPD is used to describe airflow obstruction due to chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both. The main cause of COPD is smoking. Bronchiectasis Bronchiectasis is an abnormal widening of one or more airways.

Extra mucus is made in the abnormal airways, which is prone to infection. The main symptom is a cough which produces a lot of sputum. You may also cough up some blood from the abnormal inflamed airway and become wheezy.

There are various underlying causes of bronchiectasis. For example, a previous severe lung infection, some inherited conditions and some other conditions that can damage part of an airway. Bronchiolitis Bronchiolitis is an infection of the small airways of the lung the bronchioles.
