Acapella Breathing Device
This program is recommended for patients who have been diagnosed with lung conditions that cause increased mucus production, including bronchiectasis, mycobacterium infections, cystic fibrosis, exacerbation of chronic bronchitis, and other conditions resulting in abnormal CT scans. Patients are treated with advanced secretion clearance techniques, and are also taught a self-treatment approach designed to improve their pulmonary hygiene. Our therapists provide individualized instruction in the techniques best suited to help each patient remove lung secretions and impacted mucus, thereby helping to reduce uncontrolled coughing and improve quality of life. The ultimate goal of the secretion clearance program is to control lung congestion and reduce the incidence of respiratory infections in susceptible patients.
