Nebulizer Use

Nebulizer Use

Hi,

Recently diagnosed with emphysema.

I am going to start using a nebulizer, can anyone who uses one of these let me know which substances you use in yours and how effective they think they are?
Also - can you mix chemicals in them or use them one at a time?

Thanks​

Zephyr Value

Zephyr Value

Have any of you heard of the Zephyr Value Procedure for COPD and emphysema patients??
It’s a new procedure being done., look it up and you might want to consider it., I got an appointment the 7th of April to see if I’m a candidate., I have to drive 140 miles one way to where they are doing the procedure., but it might be worth it.,
