Take Survey

This clinically validated survey helps you describe your asthma, how your asthma affects how you feel and what you are able to do.

BT can help patients who are:

Taking multiple asthma medications (check with your doctor to make sure that you are on the appropriate medication and taking it as prescribed). Plus:
  • Still having asthma attacks.
  • Adjusting your lifestyle to avoid asthma triggers.
  • Absent from work, school or other daily activities because of your asthma.

BT is not right for patients who:

  • Are under 18 years old.
  • Have a pacemaker, internal defibrillator or other implantable electronic device.
  • Have a known sensitivity to medications required to perform bronchoscopy, including lidocaine, atropine and benzodiazepines.
  • Have been treated previously with BT.

Alair™ Bronchial Thermoplasty System  

Bronchial Thermoplasty is delivered by the Alair™ System in 3 outpatient sessions performed by a BT-Certified pulmonologist.
The Alair™ Bronchial Thermoplasty System is indicated for the treatment of severe persistent asthma in patients 18 years and older whose asthma is not well controlled with inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting beta-agonists. As with any procedure, there are risks and individual results may vary. The most common adverse event of BT is a temporary worsening of respiratory-related symptoms. These events typically occur within one day of the BT procedure and usually resolve within a week with standard care. There is a small risk (3.4% per procedure) that symptoms may require hospitalization.1
