When patients need more than a PEP talk.

Airway clearance using High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation (HFCWO) can improve clinical outcomes:1 The Vest system.

Relief from chronic respiratory symptoms.2

Do you have patients who have been using Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) devices and aren’t improving? Or do their symptoms improve, only to fall into a recurring cycle of exacerbations, antibiotics, and even hospitalizations? If so, consider talking with your patients about The Vest system.

Surveyed clinicians state that patient symptoms not improving is a good indication that it’s time to move to HFCWO therapy such as with The Vest system.3 What’s more, 82% indicated they could have started patients on HFCWO therapy earlier in their disease progression.3 Could The Vest system help your patients, too?

Improved clinical outcomes.1

Initial research on HFCWO showed it significantly improves outcomes for patients with bronchiectasis 12 months after initiation.4 Now, compelling new data presented at the American Thoracic Society annual meeting indicates those improvements may be sustained for three years.1


Review these and other compelling results from this three-year study in the clinical research summary.
