I would like to start a discussion on alternative treatments for emphysema. For the most part, all most people know are inhalers of one kind or another and I think in the long run they may do more harm then they help. I know some people can not get along with out them. In addition, the ways some of us have come up with with the use of oxygen, ie When my nose hurts, I just use it with my mouth, I have a oximeter and have checked my oxygen level and its the same. i'm sure others have found some helpful suggestions. Anyhow, MD's have a one track mine and will not stray much off it. We are left up to ourselves to discover alternatives. Roger
