What is emphysema?

Emphysema is a form of COPD. In severe emphysema, parts of the lungs are damaged, resulting in air becoming trapped in the lungs. The damaged parts of the lung get bigger, putting pressure on the healthy parts of the lung and the diaphragm. When that happens, it is difficult to breathe properly and take deep breaths.

This continuous shortness of breath can make it difficult to perform daily activities and enjoy many aspects of life without stopping for breath, taking a break, or asking for help.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for emphysema, but the Zephyr® Valve can help patients breathe more easily, enjoy life better, and have an improved quality of life1 despite their condition.
