The TheraPEP® System is the proven choice for secretion clearance and reversal of atelectasis12
TheraPEP® PEP Therapy System is the easy-to-use system for mobilising secretions in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), lung diseases with secretory problems and to prevent or reverse atelectasis, as well as patients recovering from surgery.
Designed for positive expiratory pressure therapy and simultaneous aerosol drug delivery, the TheraPEP® System can help virtually any patient mobilise secretions easily, conveniently, and cost-effectively.
Positive expiratory pressure (PEP) therapy with TheraPEP® PEP Therapy System, unlike labour-intensive, time-consuming chest physiotherapy (CPT), can be self-administered by the patient in any setting, helping patients maintain an effective continuum of care outside the hospital. The TheraPEP® System may reduce the need for postural drainage and percussion, and can be performed in less than half the time of a conventional CPT session. 3 This offers significant time savings for both patients and clinicians.
The TheraPEP® System is even more efficient when used with a medication nebuliser or MDI spacer. The patient can receive aerolised medication, and perform therapy for secretion clearance and atelectasis, in the time of one treatment. PEP therapy may also optimise delivery of bronchodilators in patients receiving bronchial hygiene therapy. 4 No other secretion clearance device offers you a better combination of therapy, flexibility and efficiency.
