When someone has asthma, the airways may become obstructed, or blocked, because they are swollen, narrow, and clogged with thick mucus. Obstructed airways can cause coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.</p> Obstrucción de las vías aéreasCuando respiramos, el aire pasa a través de las vías aéreas (los conductos que llevan el aire hacia el interior y el exterior de los pulmones) para llegar a los pulmones.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/teens/airway-obstruction-esp.html/221631de-a97a-4cc7-9aca-d50035469b1fkh:age-teenThirteenToNineteenkh:age-youngAdultEighteenPluskh:clinicalDesignation-allergykh:clinicalDesignation-pulmonologykh:genre-dictionarykh:primaryClinicalDesignation-pulmonologyWords to Know for Teens With Asthmahttps://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/asthma-center/words-to-know/af80913e-f47b-46fe-99dc-387482ea53e9
