Red…I am at the border of mod/severe. 48% lung function. 68 yrs old, male. I use 2L O2 at night, use a nebulizer (covered under part B), meds are Brovana x2 and ipratropium bromide x4, and use albuterol prn (also under part B).
I vol for clinical trials when avail at Mayo, they aren't so scary. I am using respiratory therapy and try to remain positive. Just remember "I have COPD, but COPD hasn't got me."

How often do you use the nebulizer? Do you use it with albuterol or saline? Thanks

What kind of stuff do you volunteer for at the Mayo Clinic do they have stem cell research I have confessed, very bad I just want to live very badly I'm open to qualify for the Zephyr valve but I'm not sure if that's going to even happen
