About this Webcast

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency is a genetic disorder that can result in serious lung disease. This not-so-rare genetic disease is greatly underdiagnosed and is the most common known genetic risk factor for emphysema. Up to 3% of all people diagnosed with COPD may have undetected Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency. This presentation will provide the respiratory therapist with an appreciation of the disease, its prevalence, and its role in COPD as well as strategies for the respiratory therapist to assist in detection, education, and treatment of this population.
