Emphysema

It can change the person’s life by causing you to lose weight, having heart problems, fatigue, trouble concentrating, and more. Long-term effects are death.

Emphysema is a disease of the lung characterized by the enlargement of small bronchioles or lung alveoli, the destruction of the alveoli, decreased the elastic recoil of structures, and the trapping of air in the lungs, resulting in shortness of breath, reduced oxygen to the body, and a variety of serious and eventually fatal complications.

What It Is

Smoking and other in-home environment-al air conditions are controllable factors, and gases, germs, allergens, environmental toxins, and dry air are all uncontrolla-ble factors.

Shortness of breath, labored breathing, discolored skin, wheezing, difficulty coughing and talking are all symptoms of emphysema.

Factors

Symptoms

There is no cure for emphysema, but treatment will assist in helping the symptoms and making life better. Shortness of breath, labored breathing, discolored skin, wheezing, difficulty coughing and talking are all symptoms of emphysema. You cannot prevent it entirely, although you can lower the risks by not smoking, not secondhand smoking, avoiding unhealthy environments, and wearing protective gear around dangerous chemicals and toxins.
