"It's difficult to believe that a device so small and unobtrusive has had such a huge impact of my life.” - David, who has severe lung fibrosis.

What is Emphysema?

Emphysema is a long-term, progressive disease of the lungs that primarily causes shortness of breath. In people with emphysema the lung tissues necessary to support the physical shape and function of the lung are damaged. It is one of the diseases under the umbrella term chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD.

Whilst previously categorised as a separate illness, Emphysema is now considered as part of the COPD family, and is only a description of lung changes rather than a disease itself.

Emphysema is called an obstructive lung disease because the damage to the lung tissue around the small airways called bronchioles, makes these airways unable to hold their shape properly when you exhale. This prevents them from transferring oxygen into the blood and taking carbon dioxide out as effectively as is necessary.

What are the symptoms?

It is possible to have emphysema for many years without realising. The main symptom is shortness of breath, which usually begins gradually, but eventually it will happen when you’re at rest. If you’ve had unexplained shortness of breath for several months, you should contact your GP.

How can it be treated?

Emphysema can’t be cured, but you can relieve the symptoms and slow down the progression of the disease. Possible treatments include:

  • An inhaler to relieve coughing and shortness of breath
  • Steriod inhalers
  • Antibiotics

On a longer-term basis there are a number of therapies that have shown to be effective. These include pulmonary rehabilitation programmes to teach breathing techniques, nutrition therapy or supplemental oxygen.

Our Testimonials

“I've been diagnosed with severe lung fibrosis, which means the oxygen levels in my blood can fall to very low levels. During the day I use a mobile oxygen supply to help me breathe, but nights were always a problem and I used to wake several times every night gasping for air.

Then I was given a Soe-Mac which I plugged it into a socket by my bedside. The results were instant and dramatic. For the first time in months I was able to sleep through the night, breathing normally. It's difficult to believe that a device so small and unobtrusive has had such a huge impact on my life. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone suffering from breathing-related conditions.”

“First of all I would like to say thank you for such a wonderful machine. I’m 58 and have been a heavy smoker for 40 years. It was worth giving it (SoeMac) a try, and I could get my money back if it didn’t work within four weeks, so what did I have to lose but a little time?

Anyway it so happens that I don’t want my money back, as it’s been four weeks now and your machine as proved itself. I’m so pleased with the results that I don’t mind telling you all about them.
The first thing I noticed about the SoeMac is the quality of sleep I get, and being a bit of an insomniac at times this in itself is worth its money, I sleep well and wake up refreshed and feel alert ready to start the day. Next I noticed that the mucus on my lungs started to loosen up and I was able to clear my chest better when coughing. This has continued to improve. I cough far less than I used too and the mucus build up seems all but gone, even though I still smoke my lungs feel clearer than they have been in years, the tightness in my chest is no long there, instead they feel repaired and flexible again.

I tested my running distance before getting out of breath and can go twice as far as I used too and recover a lot quicker with less effort. The extra oxygen I seem to be getting is making a big difference to my energy levels throughout the day for some reason."
