An easy way to breath. The Smiths Medical Acapella® Choice Mucus Clearance Device - Disassembles for Cleaning eliminates the need for Chest Physical Therapy (CPT) sessions. Instead of taking anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes for your CPT session. Smiths Medical has provided a portable, easy to use, easy to clean device to mimic the same effects in full of those previous and fading CPT sessions.
When a person has trouble breathing that does not require a hospital visit but is more of a discomfort due to mucus build-up is an example scenario of when the mucus clearing device can and should be used. Whether in a hospital or home environment. Assistance can be provided for easier unconstricted breathing, without the help of a second person.
The vibratory PEP therapy system functions by having an opened airway for both inhaling narrowing the airway and concentrating it into your respiratory system. Breathing out is the real feature of the device. When inhaled, you form compression inside, almost as if a cannon ready to fire. When breathing out, the vibrating mechanism inside the device goes up letting your air out, and back down stopping your air from getting out of your lungs and system. This functionality happens so fast you can hardly feel it. What this process does when breathing out is shake up your internal passageways, clearing up mucus along the way, shaking it free and out of your system. Use in any setting and position you find comfortable. Use the device standing up or laying down, it will not affect the functionality of the device.
Cleaning is super easy. You want to be able to have the PEP device ready whenever you may feel discomfort in breathing. Disassembling the device requires no tools. You can either boil the parts, submerge them in alcohol, or place the parts in the dishwasher for cleaning. Once out of the water or solution, place on a dry cloth and let the parts air dry. The simple use, design, functionality, and sanitation of the device gives it the credit it truly deserves. By being one that can be taken to anywhere with you, carried in your purse or backpack. Made of latex-free material, it can be used by most people, even by those with sensitive to latex products. Your doctor may recommend the use of this device and can be used by both adults and children.
