Asthma effects the lungs, specifically the bronchi (larger air passages) and bronchioles  (smaller air passages) .  The information below can be found at the following site:

Asthma is a condition that affects the air passages of the lungs. It is a two-step problem:
  • When a person has asthma, the air passages are inflamed, which means that the airways are red and swollen.

  • Inflammation of the air passages makes them over extra-sensitive to a number of different things that can "trigger," or bring on, asthma symptoms.

During breathing, air is normally brought in through the nose where it is warmed, filtered, and humidified. It then passes through the throat and into the windpipe, called the trachea (TRAY-kee-a). The trachea divides into two large tubes called the right bronchus (BRONG-kus) and left bronchus. These then split up into much smaller tubes, which in turn branch into thousands of very small airways called bronchioles (BRONG-kee-olz). It is the large and small bronchi that are generally affected in asthma.
