How does HFCWO work?
- An HFCWO vest rapidly oscillates against the chest, gently compressing and releasing the chest wall to create increased airflow within the lungs
- This process thins and moves mucus toward the larger airways where it can be cleared by coughing or suction
- Reducing mucus build up in the lungs helps reduce the frequency of infection and hospitalizations while also helping prevent further lung damage
- HFCWO therapy does not require special skills—most patients are able to perform it on their own
HFCWO therapy gets results
HFCWO therapy has been shown to significantly improve outcomes for patients with bronchiectasis. That includes reducing the rate of hospitalization by 65%1, keeping more of your patients at home and out of the hospital.
