Natural lung physiotherapy, such as 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 designed for home use, and offer a non-medicated option that can be used by itself or in conjunction with other treatments.
Sove CPAP Clinic is a provider of respiratory services and products with an extensive network of clinics nationwide. We supply 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. For any questions relating to our range of PEP devices, we have clinicians able to assist you. We can be contacted by calling 1300 76 29 39 or emailing us on email@example.com.
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.
Why is airway clearance important?
A build-up of airway secretions not only decreases lung capacity, but also increases the risk of respiratory infections. Regular airway clearance using a PEP device can help keep the airway clear of secretions.
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 are dishwasher safe.
