Effective loosening of bronchial phlegm
Therapy with the PEP mask helps you to breathe freely, especially in cases of bronchial instability! The auxiliary device RC‑Cornet® PLUS offers a combination of this physiotherapeutic treatment option together with inhalation.
- Mobilises bronchial phlegm
- Facilitates the coughing up of bronchial phlegm
- Inhibits airway closure and phlegm residue in cases of loss of lung elasticity
- Activates the pulmonary surfactant (surface-active substance)
- Only for single-patient use
PEP mask breathing technique
- Press mask firmly over the nose and mouth, then cough 3 – 5 times into the mask.
- Remove mask from the face, breathe normally 5 – 10 times.
- Press the mask to the face once again and exhale five times through the stenosis while breathing calmly.
- Perform multiple instances of “huffing”, i.e. quickly contract the stomach with an open mouth, this will produce a “stertorous” noise, similar to the barking of a dog.
- If you have a bronchial condition on one side, lay on the healthy side and conduct the technique as described in steps 1 to 4.
It is important not to cough immediately when you feel the phlegm rising in the airways, but instead to conduct the “huffing” as described above. This exercise should be performed 3 – 5 times per day.
The PEP mask is available online as well as in pharmacies and medical supply stores.
