Natural Lung Positive Expiratory Pressure Exerciser

Sold as Each

The PEPE (Positive Expiratory Pressure Exerciser) device can be used as an effective PEP therapy treatment for patients suffering from respiratory conditions since it helps facilitate mucus clearance. It vibrates and the airways which loosens mucus and secretions from the airway wall. The intermittent increase in pressure from breathing out through the PEP Therapy Device helps keep the airways open during exhalation so that the mucus does not become trapped and can move up the airway. The rapid exhalation creates both Positive Expiratory Pressure and Oscillations to help push the mucus up the airway to where it can be coughed out.

Why is Airway Clearance important? In many chronic pulmonary conditions there is a build-up of secretions in the airways. These secretions, when stuck in the airways, make breathing difficult, can block air passages, and provide an ideal environment for bacteria to multiply Therefore, airway clearance can be critical to your treatment. Daily airway clearance with the PEPE can help break this cycle of lung infection and damage.

  • Phase 2 Mucus Elimination - slowly inhale, perform the 2–3 second breath hold and then forcibly exhale through the PEPE as completely as possible. This forceful exhalation should move the mucus up to a level that triggers a cough.
