Cough assistance therapy is useful in the mobilization and elimination of broncho-pulmonary secretions and is indicated for home and hospital use. The therapy can be performed non-invasively through the use of masks and/or mouthpieces, otherwise also invasively using a catheter mount. PEGASO PLUS COMBI It works as a mechanical inexufflation ventilator and helps patients expectorate bronchial secretions if they have severely impaired coughing ability.
Il PEGASO PLUS COMBI simulates a natural cough by applying several cycles of insufflation followed by a rapid exsufflation.
Il PEGASO PLUS COMBI it is a latest generation cough assistant ventilator; allows you to free the altered airways from mucus in a non-invasive way and offers up to four different operating modes: Manual, Automatic, EasyStart, AutoSync. It also features a striker, which, in Striker mode, adds high-frequency ventilation to the cough assist modes.
During manual mode, insufflation pressures are preset by the operator, while inhalation, exhalation and pause times will be determined individually for each cycle by pressing the I and E keys or moving the optional switch in the direction of I and E .
AUTOMATIC The device automatically generates inflation cycles on the patient by delivering positive inspiratory pressure I (+0 to +70 cmH2O) to inflate the lung, then quickly switches to negative expiratory pressure E (-0 to -70 cmH2O) to inflate the patient. deflate the lungs, followed by zero pressure. The three application times Ti (inspiration time), Te (exhalation time) and Tp (pause time) will be set and then applied for each cycle by the operator.
The device works as in Automatic mode; otherwise the first positive cycle is synchronized with the inspiration of the first patient. Automatic synchronization The device works as in Automatic mode; otherwise each positive inspiratory cycle is synchronized with the inspiration of each patient.
The device works as in Automatic mode; otherwise each positive inspiratory cycle is synchronized with the patient's inspiration.
In Percussion mode the device delivers jets of air (alternating positive/zero pressure) onto the patient at a high frequency, between 50 and 600 cycles per minute. The operator can also set the I:E ratio of the bursts. Pressure up to 70 cmH2O and extremely powerful flows for highly effective antitussive therapy
Patients with this type of problem typically suffer from:
Spinal muscular atrophy
Spinal cord damage
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
High-frequency percussive therapy can be applied via mouthpiece, mask or catheter holder.
