Zephyr Endobronchial Valve

Zephyr Endobronchial Valve

A New Treatment Option for Severe Emphysema

Your doctor offers a new procedure to help you with severe emphysema. It is called the Zephyr® Valve treatment. The Zephyr Valve treatment is a procedure that allows a doctor to place one or more small valves in your airways, which release trapped pockets of air to improve your ability to breathe. It is not a medicine and it is not surgery.

Other Treatment Options

Emphysema cannot be cured; however, treatment may help
reduce symptoms, improve quality of life, and slow progression of the disease.

Current Emphysema Treatment Options:

  • Stop smoking
  • Medication
  • Long term oxygen therapy
  • Pulmonary rehabilitation
