SKU PTX211530

Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) therapy is used to mobilize secretions, supporting a more independent lifestyle for patients with chronic respiratory diseases, as the therapy can be done when convenient for the patient and without the need for an assistant
Combines the benefits of both PEP therapy and airway vibrations to mobilize pulmonary secretions and can be used in virtually any position, allowing patients to move freely and sit, stand or recline
It improves clearance of secretions, is easier to tolerate than chest physical therapy (CPT), takes less than half the time of conventional CPT sessions and facilitates opening of airways in patients with lung diseases with secretory problems such as COPD, asthma and cystic fibrosis
Adjust the frequency and flow resistance simply by turning an adjustment dial
Features include =15 LPM expiratory flow, an inspiratory valve, a proprietary rocker mechanism and a 22mm fitting for use with a mouthpiece or mask
