There is a new treatment option for severe emphysema

Learn More About The Zephyr Valve

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 only options were highly invasive treatments, such as lung volume reduction surgery or a lung transplant.

It may be time to talk to your doctor or a pulmonologist about whether a new treatment option for emphysema is right for you.

Next Steps

If you’ve been diagnosed with emphysema and you have stopped smoking or are willing to stop smoking, you may be a candidate for the Zephyr Valve. Only a doctor can determine if Zephyr Valve is right for you.

Step 1: You may need additional testing, including lung function testing or a CT scan.

Step 2: You may need to be referred to a center that can offer advanced treatment options, including Zephyr Valve Treatment.
