Were you looking for information on Emphysema? Emphasima is a common misspelling of emphysema.
Emphysema is a degenerative disease of the airway and lungs that typically develops after a long period of assault (usually from smoke or air pollution). While tobacco use is the primary cause of this condition, long-term exposure to fumes and dust can also cause it. Shortness of breath is the most common symptom. Coughing and wheezing may also be present. Treatment options for emphysema vary, but typically include medications, oxygen therapy, or surgery. If smoking is the primary cause, it's important that the person stop smoking to ensure the best prognosis possible.
