The acapella(R) duet vibratory PEP therapy system provides added convenience and versatility to the already excellent family of acapella(R) bronchial hygiene
techniques such as chest physiotherapy, flutter valve, acapella, or positive expiratory pressure (PEP) are directed toward facilitating the clearance of tracheobronchial secretions, and reducing the degree of airflow obstruction.
Compounding the bronchial hygiene
