"For breath is life, so if you breathe well you will live long on earth."
– Sanskrit Proverb
Imagine drawing in a deep breath, and then putting a small straw in your mouth and being forced to continue breathing only through the straw. You would quickly feel the exhaustion of trying to get all your air through this narrow passageway. You would breathe shallow breaths into the top of your lungs. This is how an asthma attack can feel.
