The Vest® Airway Clearance System - Acute Care Model 205

Improved lung function for the patient

The Vest® Airway Clearance System has been demonstrated to benefit patients in the removal of retained secretions due to both acute and chronic respiratory conditions. The Vest® System can assist in airway clearance for patients suffering from airway clearance dysfunction, secretion retention and/or ineffective cough or secretion clearance due to immobility, deconditioning or muscle weakness.

The Vest® Airway Clearance System utilizes High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation technology to dislodge mucus from the bronchial walls, and mobilizes secretions and mucus from the smaller to larger airways where it can be cleared by coughing or suctioning.

Designed with acute care needs in mind, The Vest® System, Model 205 system is safe, effective and easy to use helping patients breathe a little easier.™ Learn more about The Vest® Airway Clearance System for Acute Care.
