Of course deductions from my own asthma lung situation should be approached with caution. However:
Normal playing never gives me problems like the ones, that you describe. But when band parts are extended emulations of ostinato and rest-less rock-bass-guitar lines, then my lungs HURT. Especially if I am the single tuba in the section.
For me, there is one cure. Water, water, and even more water. If there are a few barley juice additives to the water, I won't protest too loudly.
