Emphysema is a permanent enlargement of the air spaces distal to the terminal bronchiole accompanied by destruction of their walls.
Lung tissue destruction caused by emphysema is mainly the result of chemical inhalation. The most common source of such chemicals is cigarette smoke from both first and second hand smoking.
As this disease progresses, and more of the lungs break down, more air gets trapped into the lungs. It may feel like you can’t get air in, yet the truth is you can’t get air out.
