Asthma attack. Eighteen year old male clutching his chest during an asthma attack. He is holding an inhaler, used treat an asthma attack, at his side. Asthma is a condition in which the small airways (bronchioles) in the lungs constrict, making it difficult to breathe. This causes wheezing, coughing and breathlessness. The inhaler is an aerosol pump that releases bronchodilator drugs, which widen the airways.
