Always get a second opinion for major health problems. Doctors are human... to err is human.

It's the inhaling that causes emphysema, not the exhaling.

When emphysema web sites mention the over inflation of the lungs, this isn't something that happens with breathing that you control. Think of your lungs as a great big balloon with little balloons inside. When you inhale the little balloons inside inflates a great deal and the outside balloon not so much, but when the little balloons cannot take air, the big balloon inflates beyond its normal size pushes against the diaphragm.... and then breathing problems ensue.


Take a look at the breathing excercises at the emphysemafoundation:
