A Treatment Option for Emphysema/COPD

COPD is a progressive disease and gets worse over time. Emphysema is a severe form of COPD. People who suffer from emphysema live with severe shortness of breath that often prevents them from doing simple daily activities without pausing to catch their breath or resting.

Until recently, there were few treatment options to help patients who have reached the limit of what help medications and supplemental oxygen can deliver. The Zephyr Valve is the first endobronchial to receive [pre-market] approval from the FDA for patients with either heterogeneous or homogeneous emphysema.
