Airway Clearance and Lung Rehabilitation 1 1. Compromised alveoli are swollen and filled with mucus and other debris.
2 2. Controlled, high frequency percussive pulses between 60-400 cycles per minute.
3 3. High frequency, percussive pulses and a dense aerosol mist are delivered into the lungs during therapeutic percussion, which serves to reduce the adhesive and cohesive forces of retained airway secretions.
Lung recruitment with TRUE-IPV® gently “persuades” distal airways and collapsed alveoli to open over time. This keeps the recruited lung open and functioning while atelectasis, infection, inflammation and injury are healed. 2
4. Healing continues with repeated TRUE-IPV® therapy sessions using the Phasitron® 5.
