The chronic obstructive disease (HOBL) which is incurable also in 80-90% of cases affects exactly lungs of smokers. Bronchial tubes are narrowed, lungs are overflowed with air, there is a chronic inflammation and development of emphysema. The patients suffering from HOBL and emphysema feel constant shortage of air at first at the movement, and then and at rest.
