All other modalities of PEP therapy (mask and mouthpiece PEP) and oscillating PEP using the Flutter[R] and Acapella[R] together with Autogenic drainage were rarely applied.
Expiratory airflow is then able to move mucus along the airways, whether by controlled breathing (see Autogenic Drainage as described in the following section), forced expiratory pressure (see Active Cycle of Breathing [ACB] as described in the following section), coughing, or by using the shearing forces created by exhalation during positive expiratory pressure (PEP) breathing.
Other techniques and devices include Autogenic drainage (AD), mechanical percussors for use with traditional CPT, the Flutter[R] valve, and positive expiratory pressure (PEP); intrapulmonary percussive ventilation (IPV) represents a variant form of PEP.
