[ Airway Clearance Therapy ]

Westmed offers 4 complimentary products for Airway Clearance Therapy and a comprehensive program of Pulmonary Hygiene …

… the 1st is the new Vibralung® Acoustical Percussor, for challenging acute and chronic conditions where gentle and effective mucus clearance with patient comfort is preferred.  The 2nd is PulmoSal™ 7% (pH+) Bio-Balanced™ hypertonic saline solution for inhalation.  A recent study has revealed that buffered 7% hypertonic saline (PulmoSal) at a normal pH of 7.4 resulted in a reduction of Pseudomas aeruginosa CFU count in vitro.

The 3rd is the Circulaire® II High-Efficiency Aerosol Drug Delivery System that almost doubles drug mass delivery rate with home air compressors and maintains a high degree of consistency regardless of breathing pattern.  And the 4th is Westmed’s versatile Variable Expiratory Resistor (with or without manometer) for PEP (Positive Expiratory Pressure) therapy that is a standard component part of the Circulaire II and the Vibralung devices.

Vibralung® Acoustical Percussor

The Vibralung Acoustical Percussor applies vibratory sound waves, during both inspiration and exhalation, over a wide range of frequencies from 5 to 1,200 Hz to vibrate the column of gas in the tracheobronchial tract. As a result, the airways are vibrated by sympathetic resonance and mucus is thereby loosened and separated throughout the airways to promote safe, effective and gentle ACT unlike any alternative. The wide range of applied intrapulmonary sound wave frequencies assure that airways of all sizes, in patients of all sizes, are effectively vibrated.

The Vibralung can be used as either sole therapy, or adjunct therapy, depending upon the patient’s needs and response. It is lightweight, battery-powered and portable so it can go wherever the patient goes.

PulmoSal™ 7% (pH+) Bio-Balanced™ Hypertonic Saline

PulmoSal 7% is indicated for the induction of sputum.  It is formulated to match the natural physiologic pH of the airway surface liquid (ASL) @ ±7.4.  PulmoSal is unique among hypertonic saline inhalation products: it is the only FDA-cleared sodium chloride inhalation solution that is buffered with sodium bicarbonate to a pH of 7.4. Pseudomonas aeruginosa has an affinity to colonize in an acidic pH of ~6.0. A recent study has shown a reduction in Pseudomonas aeruginosa CFU count.
