PEP therapy and the acapella choice PEP system
Complimentary shipping on all Acapella Choice purchases!
Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) therapy is used to mobilize airway secretions, and facilitates the opening of airways. PEP devices have been found to give independence to patients with chronic respiratory diseases as the therapy can be done when convenient for the patient and without the need for an assistant.
The Acapella® Choice Vibratory PEP Therapy System combines the benefits of both Positive Expiratory Pressure therapy and airway vibrations to mobilize airway secretions and can be used in virtually any position allowing patients to move freely and sit, stand or recline. It is the ideal at-home therapy solution for patients with lung diseases and secretory problems (such as COPD, asthma, cystic fibrosis and lung infections).
- One-way inspiratory valve, making it easy to perform multiple repitions without removing the device from your mouth
- Easily adjustible variable resistance settings for high- and low-flow patients
- Can be used in any position
- Easy to clean and dishwasher safe
- Can be combined with nebulizer treatment for more effective treatment
- Acapella DH® is used for flow rates of >15L/min
what is oscillatory positive expiratory pressure (PEP) Therapy?
Oscillatory, or vibratory, positive expiratory pressure therapy, is an airway clearance technique combining positive expiratory pressure (PEP) therapy and vibratory therapy.
PEP therapy equalises bronchiole and alveolar pressure to prevent airway collapse and keep airways open. Through collateral ventilation, air is moved behind trapped secretions to improve gas exchange and reverse atelectasis (airway collapse/inadequate expansion).
Vibratory therapy uses airflow vibrations to gently shake airway structures, loosening excess secretions and decreasing their viscosity.
opep therapy and acapella choice
Opep therapy is effective for patients with retained or excessive secretions, assists in clearing excess secretions from lung and airway structures, and helps patients with compromised pulmonary capacity to breathe easier.
The Acapella Choice system allows patients to carry out OPEP therapy in the comfort of their own homes, with no need for extra assistance.
