COPD & Emphysema

Do you have COPD?

COPD is a progressive lung disease that millions of people suffer from. Emphysema is a severe form of COPD. As the disease progresses, you may feel worse, leading to more inactivity and a decreasing quality of life.

Don’t simply get used to the symptoms and the restrictions on your life. Even if the condition is not curable, the right treatment can help you to breathe more easily, be more active and improve your quality of life.

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.
