CoughAssist T70
     

 

 

 

Typical patients include those with the following conditions, though any patient with an ineffective ability to cough may benefit from using the device:

·       Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

·       Spinal muscular atrophy

·       Muscular dystrophy

·       Myasthenia gravis

·       Spinal cord injuries

·       Post-polio syndrome

·       Ventilator dependent

·       Tracheostomy

Less irritating, less painful, less tiring, and less uncomfortable than tracheal suctioning, 72% of patients also found it to be more effective than suctioning.5
 
More effective in clearing secretions and better tolerated than endoctracheal suctioning in groups of ventilator-dependent tracheostomy patients.4
 
Safe and effective for use with tracheostomy tubes for patients with ALS; expels 26% more mucus than deep suctioning and improves SpO2 in ALS patients receiving mechanical ventilation via tracheostomy tube.3
 
·       Clears airways for longer periods of time than tracheal suctioning and with fewer complications.3
 
·       We often think of a cough as a symptom of a cold or a means to clear our throat. Truth is, the ability to cough is essential to life. Normally, the lining of the airways produces small amounts of mucus which trap dirt and bacteria. If allowed to accumulate, these secretions can result in infection. Coughing is the body’s way of clearing mucus from the lungs.

Muscles located in our rib cage, neck and abdomen play an important role during coughing. With many diseases, a weakened ability to remove secretions increases the chance of a respiratory infection.

If coughing becomes difficult, your physician may prescribe the use of a manual and/or mechanical-assisted coughing technique. A manual cough assist involves applying firm and rapid pressure to the upper abdomen, forcing air out of the lungs. Reduces recurrent respiratory infections in patients with respiratory weakness from neuromuscular disease.5


CoughAssist T70 offers an effective and comfortable way to remove secretions in patients with an ineffective ability to cough. It is a mechanical insufflation-exsufflation device that clears secretions from the lungs by gradually applying positive air pressure to the airway and then rapidly shifting to negative pressure.

This in-exsufflation shift in pressure creates a high expiratory flow that simulates a deep, natural cough. Instead of introducing a suction catheter into the airway, air is delivered through a facemask, a mouthpiece, or through a simple adapter that allows the device to function with an endotracheal or tracheostomy tube.

For use in the hospital or in the home, CoughAssist T70 is an effective and comfortable way to remove secretions, keeping airways clear longer than trached suction and with fewer complications.
 
Readily portable

Weighing less than 9 lbs, CoughAssist T70 is compact, lightweight and easy for patients to transport. In addition to AC and DC power options, a detachable Lithium Ion battery adds flexibility with up to four treatments on a single charge.

Easy to use

An enhanced user-friendly digital interface and preset prescriptions make setting inhale/exhale pressures and initiating therapy simplier than ever. CoughAssist T70 runs on the same battery and employs the same, easy-to-use, intuitive interface as Trilogy ventilators.

Comfort driven

Cough-Trak’s automatic sensitivity allows patients to initiate therapy and synchronize treatment with their own breathing pattern.

Results oriented

Tidal volume can be monitored to help determine the proper inspiratory pressure needed to deliver a deep inhalation. Peak cough flow measures cough strength and is reported at the end of each cycle allowing you to adjust the expiratory pressure needed to deliver an effective cough. Patients and caregivers can monitor these data, as well as oxygen saturation levels to enhance therapy effectiveness.

Suctioning

Suctioning is an invasive procedure that uses a thin catheter and negative pressure to remove secretions from the airways. Suctioning must be done with care. Bleeding, lowering of the patient’s oxygen level, and infection have all been associated with suctioning.

CoughAssist T70

CoughAssist T70, also known as a mechanical insufflation-exsufflation device, simulates a natural cough. It gradually delivers a large volume of air to your lungs when you breathe in (positive pressure). Once the lungs have been expanded (similar to a normal deepbreath), the device quickly reverses the flow to pull secretions out (negativepressure). And, CoughAssist T70 helps keep your airways clear to reduce the chance of recurring respiratory infections. The device also incorporates a triggering feature that allows you to synchronize treatment with your ownbreathing pattern.
