Easy-to-Use, Multi-Function, Patient-Administered,
Not every patient has the same lung pathology, so why treat them with the same pep? VibraPEP® is a multi-function PEP device that any patient can use, in any position because it is not gravity dependent.
The VibraPEP positions are used to fine tune the therapy to the patient. Positions 1, 2 or 3 create CombinedPEP. These settings maintain an appropriate positive expiratory pressure that promotes collateral ventilation by stabilizing and enlarging the airway. Positions 4 and 5 create DyanmicPEP. These settings create erratic flow and pressure oscilations. Viscous mucus cannot follow these fast movements and is shed from the bronchial walls.
One-Device, Two Vibration Patterns, Multiple Therapies
VibraPEP produces two types of vibration patterns, asynchronous and synchronous. The oscillations and flow interruptions have been shown to decrease the cohesiveness of sputum. With 5 easy-to-adjust settings, you can match the therapy to the patient’s lung pathology.
Position 1, 2 or 3 creates CombinedPEP characterized as continuous positive pressure above baseline with applied pressure and flow changes. These settings maintain an appropriate positive expiratory pressure (PEP) that promotes collateral ventilation by stabilizing and enlarging the airwayation.
Position 4 and 5 creates DynamicPEP, erratic flow and pressure oscillations characterized by a slow increase from zero to maximum with an abrupt return to zero. Viscous mucus cannot follow these fast movements and is shed from the bronchial walls.
Patient Use: Designed for Simplicity
As you will see in this video, the VibraPEP is simple for patients to understand and use. It is not dependent on the patient’s position. The VibraPEP can also be used with a nebulizer for medication delivery.
Effective, Efficient Medication Delivery
VibraPEP can be used with a nebulizer. Adding the Valved Tee Adapter enhances therapy by combining PEP therapy along with medication delivery.
