BT is not a medication; it’s long-lasting relief for adults with severe asthma. BT is a safe, minimally-invasive outpatient procedure that delivers mild heat inside the airway walls to reduce the amount of excess smooth muscle tissue. The complete BT procedure includes three outpatient visits scheduled approximately three weeks apart.
