When people inhale, the air travels through the following structures: Air passes into the lungs and flows through progressively smaller airways called bronchi and then bronchioles . The lungs contain millions of these airways. All bronchioles lead to alveoli , which are microscopic sacs where oxygen is taken in and carbon dioxide is expelled. The major features of the lungs include the bronchi, the bronchioles, and the alveoli. The alveoli are the microscopic sacs lined by tiny blood vessels that take in oxygen and give up carbon dioxide. Asthma is a chronic condition in which these airways undergo changes when stimulated by allergens or other environmental triggers.
