Philips CoughAssist 3200 Respirator
The CoughAssist noninvasively helps patients clear bronchial secretions when they can't cough for themselves - such as neuromuscular diseases or spinal cord injuries. The CoughAssist is a safe and comfortable way to reduce the risk of airway damage and respiratory complications. The CoughAssist helps patients by enhancing or replacing their natural removal of bronchial secretions with the gradual application of positive pressure to the airway followed by a rapid shift to negative pressure. The slow inhale/rapid exhale airflow simulates the natural coughing process while avoiding the potential problems associated with more invasive procedures.
