CoughAssist T70 clears secretions from the lungs by gradually applying positive air pressure (insufflation) to the airway and then rapidly shifting to negative air pressure (exsufflation). This in-exsufflation shift in pressure creates a high expiratory flow that simulates a deep, natural cough. Instead of introducing a suction catheter into the airway, air is delivered noninvasively through a facemask, a mouthpiece, or through a simple adapter that allows the device to function with an endotracheal or tracheostomy tube. As a result, the CoughAssist T70 is a gentle, comfortable way to remove secretions and is highly effective, keeping airways clear longer than trached suction and with fewer complications.
