Trimbow 87/5/9 does anyone here use this?

Trimbow 87/5/9 does anyone here use this?

Many thanks
Gill

Zephyr Valve and lung stent infro.

Zephyr Valve and lung stent infro.

1) Has anybody heard about or has gone thru the procedure to have a Zephyr Valve placed in their airways. Information that I was reading had this statement: "During a bronchoscopic procedure requiring no cutting or incisions, tiny Zephyr Valves are placed in the airways to occlude a diseased part of the lungs and reduce hyperinflation.
