Description
 
A Paradigm Shift in Respiratory Care

Can you hear it? It’s the new sound of the Vibralung® Acoustical Percussor, and its starting a revolution in Airway Clearance Therapy (ACT). Only the Vibralung® Acoustical Percussor applies sound waves over a wide range of frequencies to vibrate the column of gas in the tracheobronchial tract. As a result, mucus is loosened and separated throughout the airways, to promote safe, effec- tive and gentle ACT like no other alternative. The Vibralung®Acoustical Percus- sor can be used either as a sole or adjunct therapy, depending upon the patient’s needs and response. In addition, Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) can be applied simultaneously for its beneficial effects. Also, aerosol therapy can be used for the delivery of wetting agents and/or medications.

The Gentler Approach to ACT

The Vibralung® Acoustical Percussor is a gentler form of ACT than oscillatory PEP devices, or those that make con- tact with the external chest wall. It may also be used for airway clearance in some conditions where other means like vests and hand-held chest percussors cannot be used, such as with patients that have chest injuries, burns, fresh surgical wounds or injured/broken ribs. It’s the ideal choice whenever airway clearance is the goal and patient comfort is preferred.

Clinical Application and Intended Use

The Vibralung® Acoustical Percussor is intended for use in the hospital or at home for patients with respiratory diseases and related conditions that involve: increased mucus production, infection and inspissation of respira- tory secretions, and defective mucociliary clearance. These conditions are typical in patients diagnosed with: cystic fibrosis, chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, pneu- monia, ciliary dyskinesia syndromes, asthma, muscular dystrophy, post-operative atelectasis plus neuromuscular respiratory impairments, thoracic bellows defects, and any other cardiorespiratory or neuromuscular diseases that inhibit effective cough, mucokinesis, airway clearance and expectoration.
Features
  • Easy to operate; battery-powered, lightweight and portable, can be used almost anywhere
  • Requires only minimal patient effort with normal breathing
  • No patient discomfort; no contact with the external chest wall
  • Treatment times are quick and efficient
  • Unique coupling of acoustical energy (sound waves) directly to the airway gently vibrates the airway surface to loosen secretions
  • Sole therapy or adjunct to other methods/devices
  • Optional simultaneous aerosol delivery
  • Incorporates delivery of PEP (Positive Expiratory Pressure)
  • Works during both phases of the breathing cycle
