Natural lung physiotherapy is a powerful treatment for asthma, COPD, Cystic Fibrosis and a wide range of other respiratory conditions. Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) therapy is an easy, affordable and effective treatment that can help patients to open their airways and mobilize airway secretions. PEP devices are perfect for home treatment, and offer a non-medicated option that can be used by itself or in conjunction with other treatments.
The CPAP Clinic is a medical specialist group, and a leading Australian provider of respiratory services and products. We are a proud supplier of a range of respiratory therapy options, including several PEP devices. We offer some of the best PEP devices on the market, including the Acapella PEP system from Smith’s medical.

Many over the counter medications designed to help those suffering from respiratory conditions simply relax muscles and relieve inflammation, but do not help clear the airways. The accumulation of mucus in the lungs can cause a decline in capacity. PEP devices, particularly vibratory PEP devices, help shake loose and clear out secretions to help patients to breathe easier. Even for healthy individuals and athletes, PEP therapy is great for lung exercise to help increase your lung capacity.
What can PEP therapy be used for?
PEP therapy is a suitable treatment for a wide range of respiratory conditions, including:
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Asthma treatment
- COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
- Most other disorders resulting in retained secretions
- Lung strengthening and expansion
- Chest cold and flu
Why is airway clearance important?
A build-up of airway secretions not only decreases lung capacity, but also increases the risk of respiratory infections. For Cystic Fibrosis patients and other respiratory patients, increased secretions in their lungs provide an ideal environment for microbes and bacteria to thrive. Regular airway clearance using a PEP device can help break the cycle of lung infections and damage.
PEP devices like the Acapella are now easier than ever to use. A one-way valve allows you to breathe in without having to remove the device, and the Acapella has also been designed to be used in any position. PEP devices like the Acapella are easy to clean and dishwasher safe.
The CPAP Clinic also works in partnership with Centurion Healthcare, offering Respiratory and Sleep Specialist consultations. Speak to one of our consultants today to see if you could benefit from a respiratory consultation, or one of our respiratory therapy products.
