A Newer Treatment for Severe COPD/Emphysema

Endobronchial Valves (or lung valves) are a newer and minimally invasive treatment option for patients with severe emphysema, a form of COPD

The Zephyr Valve Treatment is not a drug and not a surgery, but a minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to help people with severe COPD/Emphysema breathe easier, do more and enjoy a better quality of life.1

When you have severe COPD/Emphysema, everyday tasks can become difficult, or even impossible. Simple tasks like taking a shower, walking to the mailbox, or playing with your grandkids can leave you completely short of breath. Why you feel this way is because with severe COPD/Emphysema, air becomes trapped in the diseased part of your lungs limiting your ability to take a deep breath and fully exhale.

The Zephyr Valves, which are placed by bronchoscopy, are small one-way valves that block air from entering the most diseased part of your lung and allow for the healthier parts to function better. Once this happens, you feel relief from the pressure on your diaphragm and you can begin to breathe easier.

Talk to your personal doctor or a Zephyr Valve Treating Doctor to see if you might be a good candidate for this treatment that may help you feel more confident doing everyday tasks and get back to doing the things that you love!
