The animation shows how the child's lungs are made up of large and small airways and lung tissue. In bronchiolitis, there is an inflammation in the linings of the tiniest branches of the airways, usually in children under 2 years. The linings swell up so that it is difficult for the child to breath, especially breathe out.
