The iPEP Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure device combines OPEP & Incentive Spirometer therapies to address lung expansion, treatment of atelectasis & secretion clearance
Farmville, NC (PRWEB) May 17, 2017
D R Burton Healthcare Products LLC announces the launch of the iPEP™ Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure (OPEP) device, which uniquely combines OPEP and Incentive Spirometer therapies to address all-three respiratory needs: lung expansion, treatment of atelectasis, and secretion clearance.
“The iPEP system represents a breakthrough in airway secretion clearance therapy by providing patented volumetric-based OPEP therapy. The iPEP takes the mystery out of OPEP therapy by providing patients and healthcare providers with biofeedback that measures the patient’s inspiratory capacity during therapy,” according to Dennis Cook, BSRT, RRT, CEO of D R Burton.
Along with a slow coached inhalation, the iPEP provides superior Expiratory Flow Bias, a key driver of secretion clearance outlined in a recently published study.
The iPEP system includes a palm-sized PocketPEP™, a compact OPEP device for active patients for use at home to help prevent pulmonary-related readmissions. Cook explains, “There is a need to prevent pneumonia in high risk patients, such as postoperative and patients with increased mucous production. The D R Burton family of OPEP products are designed to reduce the risk of not only hospital acquired pneumonia, but also reduce risk of pneumonia at home after discharge.”
D R Burton will be meeting with clinicians to discuss these products both at the American Thoracic Society International Conference on May 19-24 in Washington, DC and at the National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition on May 22-25 in Houston, TX.
