Stop Smoking Hypnosis Denver – What Is Emphysema?

Stop Smoking, Hypnosis, Denver

Emphysema is a form of chronic (long-term) lung disease. People with emphysema have difficulty breathing from a limitation in blowing air out. There are multiple causes of emphysema, but smoking is by far the most common.

Emphysema is the main type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Although emphysema has no cure, quitting smoking reduces the rate of emphysema disease progression.

Stop Smoking Hypnosis Denver – What Happens in Emphysema?

Emphysema results when the delicate linings of the air sacs in the lungs become irreversibly damaged. Most commonly, the toxins in cigarette smoke create the damage. Over years, the lung changes of emphysema slowly evolve:

  • As the fragile tissues between air sacs are destroyed, air pockets in the lungs develop.
  • Air becomes trapped in these spaces of damaged lung tissue.
  • The lungs slowly enlarge, and breathing requires more effort.

This problem of emphysema is called airflow limitation. During lung function testing, it takes someone with emphysema far longer to empty their lungs than it does a person without emphysema.

Emphysema is the main form of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD is so named because people with emphysema exhale as if something were obstructing the flow of air. The other form of COPD is chronic bronchitis, which can also be caused by smoking.

Emphysema is not curable, the condition cannot be reversed. However, treatment may slow down its rate of progression and alleviate symptoms.

Stop Smoking Hypnosis Denver – What are the signs and symptoms of emphysema?

A patient with emphysema may experience no symptoms for many years. Eventually, as the condition progresses, there is a shortness of breath (dyspnea), which starts off gradually. An individual with early stages of emphysema may avoid physical activity because it makes them pant too much. Eventually, the shortness of breath is present even when the person is resting.

Stop Smoking Hypnosis Denver – Smoking Is a Major Cause of Emphysema.

In the vast majority of people, smoking is the cause of emphysema. Exactly how smoking destroys the air sac linings in the lungs isn’t known. However, population studies show that smokers are about six times more likely to develop emphysema than nonsmokers.

Estimates vary, but more than 10 million people in the U.S. likely have emphysema or another form of COPD. Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S.
