Breakthrough Treatment Option for Severe Emphysema, a form of 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.

You may have been told you have advanced COPD or end-stage COPD. When you have severe emphysema, you may:

  • Be breathless and unable to perform normal daily activities
  • Have a decreased ability to exercise
  • Be depressed and withdraw from family and friends
  • Be at an increased risk of death

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.

The Zephyr Valve is clinically proven to help emphysema patients breathe easier, do more, and enjoy life1

It may be time to talk to your doctor about whether this minimally invasive treatment option for emphysema is right for you.
