Refurbished Hillrom Vest 105 System
The Vest™ Airway Clearance System is designed to assist patients in the mobilisation of retained secretions. If not removed, retained secretions may contribute to increased rates of respiratory infection, hospitalisation and reduced lung function.
Through High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation (HFCWO) technology, The Vest™ Airway Clearance System dislodges mucus from the bronchial walls, and mobilises secretions and mucus from the smaller to larger airways where it can be cleared by coughing or suctioning.
The Vest™ has been used to assist with effective airway clearance in more than 500 diseases and conditions in adults and children.
The Vest™ is ideal for people experiencing:
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
Muscular Dystrophies and other myopathies.
Quadriplegia and/or Quadriparas.
Acute Respiratory Failure (ARF).
Atelectasis, Pulmonary Infiltrates.
The removal of retained secretions may help:
Reduce respiratory infections.
Reduce hospital admissions.
Improve lung function.
Improve quality of life for patients and caregivers.
An ideal supplementary treatment to existing therapies, especially if experiencing:
Limited success with current airway clearance techniques.
Lack of strength or ability to perform active treatment.
Poor cooperation with other airway clearance methods.
Constant fatigue is impeding existing therapies.
Reliance on others to assist with therapies.
