·         How can a lung specialist at Parkchester Medical help you?

Emphysema Treatment is prescribed by the lung specialist to help you overcome the shortness of breath. As ordinary or small shortness of breath may seem but not being able to breathe properly and carry out normal routine chores sure is a big problem. Although emphysema is just shortness of breath due to the damaged air sacs of the lungs but in case of type 3-4 of emphysema, human health is at risk for many other fatal health conditions such as pneumonia and heart failure.

·         What is the treatment of emphysema?

When the air sacs in the lungs weaken and rupture, larger air spaces are created in place of shorter ones. In order to overcome this, a lung specialist can prescribe a number of treatments (customized according to one’s condition) which are:

1)      Medications: A pulmonologist or lung specialist will prescribe you a course of bronchodilator medications which may be in the form of sprays or oral medications, to help clear and relax your air passages in the lungs.

2)      Steroids: A lung specialist can also prescribe steroids in order to help a patient breathe and fight the symptoms of shortness of breath.

3)      Antibiotics: Antibiotics can also be prescribed by the doctor, in case of an infection.

It is important to understand that once one develops the conditions of emphysema, there is no turning back. It can never be completely cured, but adequate treatments can be provided to prevent further lung damage. Here are some ways through which one can help themselves and improve their lung health:

1)      Visit a doctor and get a diagnosis

2)      Quit Smoking.

3)      Take proper medication
