In people with asthma, these muscles often tighten in reaction to certain things. When this happens, the airways become narrower, which blocks the flow of air and makes it harder to breathe. This narrowing of the airways is known as bronchoconstriction. Along with inflammation of the airways, it leads to symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.</p> BroncoconstricciónLas vías aéreas (los conductos que llevan el aire hacia el interior y el exterior de los pulmones) están rodeadas por un tipo de músculo denominado "músculo liso".https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/parents/bronchoconstriction-esp.html/41af862c-9c53-4bb5-a902-0d0c4cb889bdkh:age-allAgesOrAgeAgnostickh:clinicalDesignation-allergykh:clinicalDesignation-pulmonologykh:genre-dictionarykh:primaryClinicalDesignation-pulmonologyAsthma Words to Knowhttps://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/asthma-center/words-know/1e3f21a2-c4e3-4dc4-8aa6-850a19c47fff
