How to Keep Your Emphysema From Getting Worse

Preventing Progression During Emphysema Treatment

If you smoke, the most important thing you can do to stop more damage to your lungs is to quit smoking. Many hospitals have smoking cessation programs or can refer you to one.
 
It is also important to stay away from people who smoke and places where you know smokers will be.
 
Staying away from other lung irritants, such as pollution, dust, and certain cooking or heating fumes, is also important. For example, you should stay in your house when the outside air quality is poor.
