I have applied to join this trial at Mayo Clinic Jacksonville as l come here every month. On the surface according to the company's website I qualify.
But the great news is that my pulmonologist at Mayo is one of doctors involved with this trial.
After my bronchoscopy yesterday we had a long talk about it and will be visiting the subject during my stay in the hospital this next week as I recover from a pneumothorax.
As I learn more l will share.

Inhaling the salt is supposed to help with SOB from COPD. Doesn't do any good for me.

It is a pink Himalayan salt lamp. A large block of pink salt(crystal) with a light bulb inside it.

Salt did nothing for me ,had a lamp by the bed, waste of money. Am at stage 4 and on Trelegy, Proair, Combivent and 10mg prednisone, plus 3L O2. Currently stuck at the Mayo Clinic Jacksonville because of the hurricane, no flights out, waiting to have a lung biopsy done. Looks like Dorian will miss us. Then it can happen this week.

It worked for me after 55 year. Now 2 1/2 years smoke free and feel great.

Sat, Jul 20 11:46pm · Zephyr Valve Procedure at Mayo Jacksonville and/or Scottsdale. in Lung Health

Is anyone willing to share their experience with Zephyr Valves at either Jacksonville or Scottsdale. I am stage 4 COPD and am very interested in this new procedure. Which Mayo has more experience? How many have they done at each location? What has been the improvement to quality of life? Is it worth doing?
