Mechanical Insufflator-Exsufflator

1098159

CoughAssist E70 is a mechanical insufflation-exsufflation device designed to noninvasively clear secretions from the lungs by simulating a natural cough. Similar to a normal deep breath, CoughAssist gradually applies positive air pressure (insufflation) to obtain a large volume of air within the lungs. The device then quickly reverses the flow of air by shifting to negative air pressure (exsufflation). The resulting high expiratory flow helps mobilise secretions out of the airway as a deep, natural cough would do.

Control and synchronisation
Control and synchronisation

Control and synchronisation

The proprietary, integrated Cough-Trak algorithm gives patients the ability to initiate their therapy. By triggering on patient inspiration, this feature helps to synchronise therapy with the user’s breathing pattern allowing for more control of therapy and a more comfortable, natural treatment.

Instead of introducing a suction catheter into the airway, CoughAssist delivers therapy through a face mask, mouthpiece, or a simple adapter that allows the device to function with an endotracheal or tracheotomy tube.

Flexibility in delivery of therapy

Three highly customisable therapy modes offer the ability to better tailor therapy to patient needs and treatment settings; Manual, Auto, Advanced Auto. From complete manual control over every aspect of treatment by a clinician or caregiver to a fully automated treatment mode including pressure settings, pre-therapy breaths and cough cycles.

Loosening and mobilisation

CoughAssist offers an adjustable oscillation feature designed to enhance the loosening of mucus from the bronchial walls and increase mobilisation of secretions to help improve bronchial drainage and increase the benefits of mechanical insufflation-exsufflation therapy.¹,²

Enhance clinical evaluation and reporting

Data management tools help assess therapy efficacy and enable better clinical decision-making around patient use and treatment settings. Achieve the most effective cough with insight into a patient’s response to therapy from CoughAssist by monitoring data including peak cough flow and oxygen saturation while also reviewing pressure and flow waveforms.
