Respironics CoughAssist T-70 E-70
The T-70 and the E-70 are exactly the same except for the oscillating feature.
Cough Assist Mechanical Insufflator-Exsufflator effectively clears broncho-pulmonary secretions.
The Cough-Assist T70 is an effective, safe and simple Mechanical Insufflation-Exsufflation Device.
The Cough Assist Machine helps to clear secretions from the lungs by helping you with your breathing. When you breathe in (inspiration), the machine gives you air (positive pressure) to help expand your lungs. When you blow out (expiration), the machine creates a sucking force (negative pressure) that pulls the air out of your lungs. This rapid change in pressure during the different phases of breathing (inspiration and expiration) helps make your cough stronger and more effective.
The Cough Assist Mechanical Insufflator-Exsufflator, or Cofflator, clears retained bronco-pulmonary secretions, reducing the risk of Respiratory complications.
It comes standard with an adjustable internal inhale-flow restrictor and a simpler breathing circuit (filter, hose, adapter, mask).
The ability to cough is necessary for a healthy airway. The airway linings produce mucus which traps dirt and bacteria. This mixture of mucus, dirt and bacteria can be harmful if allowed to increase in quantity. Coughing is the body’s natural way of clearing mucus from the lungs and airways. Many respiratory diseases cripple the body’s ability to cough by weakening the muscles in the rib cage, neck and abdomen. This weakened condition interferes with your body’s ability to remove secretions, increasing the chance of respiratory infections. If coughing becomes too difficult for patients, doctors often prescribe the use of Mechanical Coughing Therapy.
The Respironics Cough Assist T70 is a mechanical insufflation-exsufflation device that simulates natural coughing by gradually delivering a large volume of air to your lungs. The process of breathing in creates positive pressure, followed by a negative pressure of quickly breathing out or coughing which helps to remove mucus secretions trapped in your airways. The Respironics CoughAssist T70 enhances your cough to produce a more effective clearing of your airways. The addition of the CoughAssist feature, called the Cough-Trak, allows you to synchronize treatment with your own breathing patterns.
