Airway Clearance Management

AIRWAY CLEARANCE MANAGEMENT


Philips Respironics


Cough Assist E70  

Cough Assist E70

  • Mechanical insufflation-exsufflation device that provides non-invasive secretion clearance
  • Helps patients clear airway secretions when they can’t cough for themselves
  • Simulates the natural coughing process with its slow inhale/rapid exhale airflow
  • Has an oscillation feature to enhance therapy in assisting mobilization of secretions
  • Modes: Automatic and manual
  • 3 presets available in both modes
  • Inhale pressure: 0 to 70 cmH2O
  • Exhale pressure: 0 to -70 cmH2O
  • Inhale and exhale time: 0 – 5 seconds
  • Frequency: 1 – 20 Hz (only if oscillation is on)
  • Amplitude: 1 – 10 cmH2O (only if oscillation is on)
 Threshold PEP  

Threshold PEP

  • Improves mobilization and prevents accumulation of secretions
  • Promotes effective breathing patterns and improves gas exchange
  • Improves central and peripheral airway function
  • Prevents or reverses atelectasis
  • Optimizes bronchodilation when combined with respiratory drug delivery via nebulizer or MDI spacer devices
  • Measurement range of 5 – 20 cmH2O

 

Hill-Rom


 The Vest  

The Vest TM

  • Helps mobilize pulmonary secretions through high frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO)
  • Consists of an inflatable vest connected by tubes to an air pulse generator
  • The generator rapidly inflates and deflates the vest, compressing and releasing the chest wall
  • The rapid chest movement mimics ‘mini-coughs’ tat dislodge and thin the mucus, moving it along to the central airways
  • Treats all lobes of the lungs simultaneously
  • Beneficial to patients across continuum of care, including acute and post-acute facilities
  • Modes: Normal and Program mode
  • Up to 8 program points can be set in the program mode, each with different settings for a single therapy session
  • Frequency: 5-20 cycles per second
  • Pressure settings: 1-10
  • Treatment time: 1-60 minutes

 

 
 
 

Respiratory Muscle Trainer


 Threshold IMT  

Threshold IMT

  • Increases respiratory muscle strength
  • Increases respiratory muscle endurance
  • Increases exercise tolerance
  • Measurement range of 9 – 41cmH2O
