Has Anyone Had A Zephyr Valve Installed Recently ?

Has Anyone Had A Zephyr Valve Installed Recently ?

I 'am going to look into getting Zephyr valves to see if it can possibly enable me to walk more than 2-3 miles a day , has anyone tried them? If so what is positive and negative about them? All responses will be cherished.

They are valves placed in the lungs to deflate a lung that is not working to provide more room for the ones that are. Reviews are mixed my estimate is 75% of recipients say they are wonderful the ot% are not happy with them. I hope to be getting them this month

Hi, @A MyCOPDTeam Member - do a search on “zephyr” and you should see a post I did awhile back about everyone I could find who’d had it done in the last year or so.

I think the results were what @A MyCOPDTeam Member said - about 33% excellent, 33% meh, 33% it didn’t work.
