The Prana and Udana Vayu are responsible for normal functioning of Pranavaha Srotas, which can be altered due to causative factors in turn lead to manifestation of Kasa. While going through the Samprapti, the pathway of Pranavata is obstructed by the etiological factors like Dhuma, Raja, etc. that act as irritants to Pranavaha Srotas.
