Monarch Vest Airway Clearance Systems are finally here!
The Monarch® System from Hill-Rom Respiratory provides truly mobile and highly effective High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation (HFCWO) therapy. By using this new and powerful device, users can thin and mobilize secretions from the airways without having to interrupt their day.
Instead of the traditional air pulse units combined with air hoses and inflatable vest garments, the Monarch Vest uses eight pulmonary oscillating discs (PODs) containing magnets. These PODs oscillate and provide targeted kinetic energy to the each love of the user’s lungs. These oscillations produce airflow inside the lungs to (1) help thin and (2) move mucus from the small airways to the large airways. The user then coughs up the excess mucus. Sometimes, users add suction to help remove mucus.
The system uses a rechargeable battery and does not need to be plugged into an outlet for use. The Monarch System frees the user to be able to walk, jog, garden, read, cook and perform other everyday activities without the constraints of hoses and power cables.
The Monarch Vest is made for freedom of mobility. Its quiet operation enables easy conversation.
Fun color and patterns.
Pendant controls- are intuitive and simple to use.
Rechargeable battery- powers therapy on the move.
Handy rolling case- with a retractable handle and backpack straps looks like ordinary luggage and makes it easy for patients to travel with their device.
The Monarch Vest Airway Clearance System is intended to promote bronchial drainage where external manipulation of the thorax is the physician’s choice of treatment. It is indicated for patients having difficulty with secretion clearance or the presence of atelectasis caused by mucus plugging. The Monarch System is intended to be used in the Home Care environment by patients 15 years and older.
