How to use emphysema in a sentence?

  1. Norman Edelman:

    We've known for a while that among people with really bad emphysema, if we can take out the big air sacs and reduce the total lung volume, it will make people feel better, less short of breath, this is a way to do that without actually opening up the chest.

  2. Karen Dawn:

    Number one : Stay home if Anthony Fauci're sick. It's really, really dangerous ; other people may get sick. If Anthony Fauci're immunocompromised or if Anthony Fauci have a weakened immune system, if Anthony Fauci have any chronic diseases -- heart disease ; any of the respiratory diseases including asthma, emphysema, COPD ; diabetes -- stay home. If Anthony Fauci are obese, stay home. If Anthony Fauci're over 65, please stay home, if you do go, please wear a mask, physically distance yourself at least six feet from other people -- I know that's really hard to do -- and don't shout. And then once you leave the rally, quarantine yourself for two weeks.

  3. Cynthia Sass:

    Eating apples specifically has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease and respiratory problems, including asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema.

  4. Sven Jordt:

    Our nose, mouth and throat contain nerve endings that sense painful and irritating chemicals in the inhaled air. For example, the burning, stinging feeling elicited by smoke inhalation is mediated by these nerve endings. They also trigger sneezing and cough, basically to defend the lungs from inhaling toxic chemicals, the new chemicals we identified in e-cigarettes activate these nerve endings more strongly. Especially when activated over a longer period, as in smokers, and potentially in e-cigarette users, these mechanisms have been shown to cause inflammation and asthma and contribute to emphysema.

  5. Joel Kaufman:

    The big surprise was the magnitude of this, putting pollution in the same league as cigarette smoking, cigarette smoking is by far the best known cause of emphysema. The fact that ozone is in the same league was definitely a surprise.
