Airway Clearance Therapy
Diseases such as COPD, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, quadriplegia and other neuromuscular disorders can reduce lung function, increase mucus production and interfere with proper breathing. Increased mucus production and retention of excess mucus increase the risk of lung infections.
Effectively clearing mucus from the air passages is extremely important. Airway clearance therapy using traditional manual chest physiotherapy or HFCWO vest therapy can provide improvement both in pulmonary function and quality of life in patients with chronic hyper-secretive diseases.
HFCWO vest therapy can help loosen thick mucus secretions so it can be mobilized from your lungs by coughing. Clearing the airways may help decrease lung infections, reduce antibiotic use and hospitalization, and improve lung function.
The goals of AffloVest mechanical HFCWO therapy are to reduce the number of exacerbations and infections and to improve patient quality of life by reducing airway inflammation and mobilizing secretions.
AffloVest requires a doctor’s prescription for treatment by High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation (HFCWO). The AffloVest has received the FDA’s 510k clearance for U.S. market availability, and is approved for Medicare, Medicaid, and private health insurance reimbursement under the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codeE0483 – High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation. The AffloVest is also available through the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs/Tricare. Patients must qualify to meet eligibility requirements.
What AffloVest Users Are Saying
“Nathan doesn’t let doing the AffloVest stop him from having fun with his friends. In fact, our house is the local hangout in the neighborhood. None of them bat an eye at his treatments.”
“WOW! The intensity was strong but with the intermittent percussion and vibration, I didn’t feel a restraint on my breathing. I managed 2 miles total in that 30-minute session.”
“It can get pretty boring sitting in the same place 3 times a day for the time being for treatments. This makes me feel less constricted and like I can live a little more. I’m so happy I got this!”
