Meet Zephyr® Valves

Zephyr Valve treatment is a simple, minimally invasive procedure. The doctor uses a device called a bronchoscope to insert about four* valves1
into your airways, through your mouth or nose. The tiny valves are placed into a targeted section of the diseased lung where air has become trapped. The trapped air causes shortness of breath. The one-way valve allows the trapped air to escape, resulting in patients being able to breathe easier and experience less shortness of breath.

These valves help the healthier parts of the lung to expand. This reduces pressure on your diaphragm and helps you to breathe easier.
