Respiratory problems, which hamper the ability to breath, include asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and other conditions. The problem may be infectious and caused by a germ or virus, or may be triggered by an allergen. Symptoms may include coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing, or tightness in the chest.
Chronic respiratory problems rob energy, may cause a dangerous health crisis such as an asthma attack, and may interfere with the carrying out of the activities of daily life. Respiratory problems affect children and adults.
