Comfort Cough® Plus
Mechanical In- and Exsufflator (MIE-E)
Comfort Cough® Plus allows patients to clear bronchial secretions by applying pressure to the airways and quickly changing to negative pressure. The rapid shift causes a stronger and more effective cough.
The device is suitable for patients with lung function disorders associated with an impairment of secretion expectoration.
New features and improvements make secretion mobilization more comfortable in the clinical and homecare environment as well. The Comfort Cough® Plus may be used for invasive and non-invasive applications on adults or pediatric patients: either with a face mask, mouthpiece or an adapter to patient’s endotracheal tube or tracheostomy tube.
A plus of the Comfort Cough® Plus: The device can also be used with a percussion wrap around the thorax of the patient – a vest for high chest wall vibration therapy. By use of the percussion vest (optionally available), the lung tissue underlying the body surface is vibrated to mobilize secretions. Thus, the cough assistant – in addition to the conventional methods – invasive (via tracheostomy tube or endotracheal tube) and non-invasive (with breathing mask or mouthpiece) – can now also applied externally.
