Gas exchange is obstructed due to occlusion of the small respiratory ways, caused by bronchial hyper-secretion. All this means occurrence of hypoxemia (reduced passage of oxygen into the organism and accordingly its lower content in tissues), but without hypercapnia (increased content of carbon dioxide), because carbon dioxide passes through the alveolar-capillary membrane 25 times more easily than oxygen.
