Helping Patients Breathe Easier, Do More & Enjoy Life
Breakthrough Technology for Severe Emphysema
The Zephyr Valve delivers durable clinical benefits – without surgery and its associated risks.1-5
- Improved health status
- Improved lung function
- Increased exercise capacity
- Reduced breathlessness or dyspnea
- Reduced gas trapping
- Improved quality of life
GOLD’s evidence “A” rating affirms that endobronchial valves, like the Zephyr® Valve, are a viable, minimally–invasive treatment option for severe emphysema, a form of COPD.10
How It Works
See how the Zephyr Valve treatment is performed as a minimally invasive lung volume reduction procedure to reduce hyperinflation and gas trapping in patients with severe emphysema. The Zephyr Valve is the first endobronchial valve to receive approval from the FDA for patients with either heterogenous and homogeneous emphysema.

Durable Clinical Benefits for Patients1-5
- Clinically-proven, safe and effective treatment for patients with severe emphysema
- Consistent clinical findings across four randomized control trials
Patient Benefits & Risks
Patients treated with the Zephyr Valve compared to patients on medication alone were able to:1
- Return to activities that were previously limited
- Feel less shortness of breath
- Walk longer distances
- Have more energy
- Feel more confident leaving their home
Complications of the Zephyr Endobronchial Valve treatment can include but are not limited to pneumothorax, worsening of COPD symptoms, hemoptysis, pneumonia, dyspnea and, in rare cases, death.

Unfortunately, my sister, who first told me about the valves, passed away from the disease so it is important for me to share my story to let others know about this treatment option before it’s too late.

I had immediate relief and felt like I was a 40-year-old again. I’m enjoying things I haven’t been able to enjoy in a while. I would recommend the procedure for anyone who qualifies!

These valves certainly changed my life for the better and I just want to help spread the word so others can have hope too.
