“I feel like I can breathe again. I don’t have to fight for that breath.”

– Zephyr Valve recipient Aldine Reynolds

The Zephyr Valve is not another medication or surgery that requires cutting or incisions. It is a procedure that places tiny valves in your airways which allow the healthier parts of your lungs to expand, thereby lifting pressure off the diaphragm and helping you breathe more easily.

Who can have the Zephyr Valve treatment?

The Zephyr Valve is used to treat patients who have difficulty breathing in because of their severe emphysema.

Before you are treated, your doctor will check to see if there is an appropriate part of your lung for treatment with Zephyr Valves.

Who cannot have the Zephyr Valve treatment?

You cannot have this treatment if you:

  • Are unable to have a bronchoscopic procedure
  • Have an active lung infection
  • Have an allergy to Nitinol, nickel, titanium or silicone
  • Have not stopped smoking
  • An air pocket (bullae) that is greater than 1/3 of the size of the lung
