    1. I am interested in contacting others who have had the Zephyr valves placed and how they are doing. I am heart failure and copd patient.

      1. Hi GrammaCheri,
        I had the valves inserted a year ago, and it has really helped. Like my pulmonologist says, I still know I have it, but I have gone from 24/7 use of oxygen to mostly just at night. What has your experience been?
