Many severe asthma patients take their medications daily and continue to have severe attacks and symptoms that may require ER visits or hospitalizations. Bronchial Thermoplasty, delivered by the Alair™ System, is the first non-drug treatment option for adults whose severe asthma is not well controlled.

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.
BT Reduces Severe Asthma Attacks By Reducing Airway Smooth Muscle
With less smooth muscle, the airways constrict less, reducing severe asthma attacks and making breathing easier.
