Airway Clearance Therapy
Westmed offers 3 unique products for Airway Clearance Therapy (ACT) … … the first is the new Vibralung® Acoustical Percussor, for challenging acute and chronic conditions where gentle and effective mucus clearance with patient comfort is preferred. The second is PulmoSal™ 7% (pH+) Bio-Balanced™ hypertonic saline solution for inhalation. A recent study has revealed that buffering to a normal pH of 7.4 resulted in a reduction of Pseudomas aeruginosa CFU count in vitro. The third is PEP (Positive Expiratory Pressure) therapy by means of a Variable Expiratory Resistor therapy that is a standard component part of the Circulaire II high-efficiency aerosol drug delivery system.
Vibralung® Acoustical Percussor The Vibralung Acoustical Percussor applies vibratory sound waves, during both inspiration and exhalation, over a wide range of frequencies (5 to 1,200 Hz) to vibrate the column of gas in the tracheobronchial tract. As a result, mucus is loosened and separated by sympathetic resonance throughout the airways to promote safe, effective and gentle ACT like no other alternative. The Vibralung can be used as either sole therapy, or adjunct therapy, depending upon the patient’s needs and response. It is lightweight, battery-powered and portable so it can go wherever the patient goes.
