Secretion clearance

Key Details

Secretion clearance for spontaneous breathing patients.

High flow humidified PEP

High flow humidified PEP combines two respiratory therapies for the prevention and treatment of post -op pulmonary complications.

Anaesthesia may adversely affect the lung’s defence mechanisms impairing the ability to cough and suppressing mucociliary clearance.

Post- operative pulmonary complications (PPC) are linked to increased length of stay and mortality. Cardiac, thoracic and abdominal surgery present the highest risk of PPC.

The paper “Positive pressure therapies used in the treatment of postoperative respiratory failure – evidence for use and future directions.” by Alastair J. Glossop and Paula Agostini is looking into this.

AquaNASE® and Ultra-PEP

Humidified high flow with AquaNASE® maintains mucociliary function and improves oxygenation by delivering flows close to the patients’ peak inspiratory requirement.

Ultra-PEP is used to mobilise secretions, assist with airway clearance and prevent or reverse post-operative atelectasis.

Clinical Indications

  • COPD
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Chronic Bronchitis
  • Emphysema
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Post-operative atelectasis
  • Epithelial mucus-hypersecretion

Key Features AquaNASE® and Ultra-PEP

Humidified high flow with AquaNASE® maintains mucociliary function and improves oxygenation by delivering flows close to the patients’ peak inspiratory requirement.

Ultra-PEP is used to mobilise secretions, assist with airway clearance and prevent or reverse post -operative atelectasis.

Stasis of secretions leads to chronic infection, inflammation and reduced gas exchange. Ultra-PEP is used to mobilise secretions and thus assist with airway clearance.
