Emphysema

Emphysema belongs in the group of diseases referenced as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases (COPD). This category also includes such diseases as asthma and chronic bronchitis. Emphysema is characterized by both the destruction of the walls within the lung, and with the lung tissue loosing its elastic recoil.

This degradation results in the enlargement of the air spaces within the lung and provides for inefficient ventilation.

The main risk factors for developing Emphysema include; cigarette smoking, hyperesponsive airways, exposure to air pollution, and a genetic deficiency of an enzyme called alpha-1 antitrypsin. [1]
