The Vest Airway Clearance System, Model 105

Helping patients breathe easier


Widely recognized as the gold standard in High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation (HFCWO) therapy, The Vest® Airway Clearance System has been prescribed by more physicians than any other HFCWO vest system. It is designed to help patients mobilize retained secretions—helping them avoid respiratory infections, hospitalizations and reduced lung function.


And it works with the Hillrom™ Connex® App and Health Portal to help patients and care teams share therapy session data and results. With this powerful connection, patients can manage their daily care routines and clinicians can create more informed care plans.


How it Works

The Vest Airway Clearance System uses HFCWO technology to help clear patients’ airways. It dislodges mucus from the bronchial walls, and helps move secretions and mucus from smaller to larger airways, where it can be coughed or suctioned out.

Connection You Can Feel Good About

The Connex Health Portal from Baxter help patients and clinicians clearly see day-to-day therapy results, so they can make better decisions together.
