The Aerobika device works best in conjunction with salt therapy for any respiratory illness. These illnesses tend to target the lungs. The salt aerosol aids in detaching the mucus from the airways. Additionally, it will also liquefy the mucus. This way, the Aerobika OPEP (Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure) device will quicken the elimination process.
An OPEP device targets chronic respiratory illnesses, with increased mucus production. These illnesses include: COPD, chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, emphysema, cystic fibrosis and asthma. This device is especially useful in cystic fibrosis (CF). In cystic fibrosis, the normal transport of sodium in the body cells is disrupted. As a result, the mucus is particularly thick, sticky and hard to detach. Using salt therapy together with any OPEP device (Aerobika, AirPhysio, etc.) or vibratory vest will make a big difference in clearing the airways.
The Aerobika OPEP device is easy to use. You just need to slowly blow into it to create a vibration. This vibration goes into the lower respiratory system. It helps moving the stagnant mucus upward. We recommend using the Aerobika in the morning, after using the SaltAir device during the night. It will ease the mucus elimination and be more effective.
If left untreated, excess mucus in your lungs can cause significant problems. For one, you’ll feel shortness of breath and difficulty breathing. You will have an increased risk of infections. For example, sinus infections and ear infections will be more common. As well as lung infections. Furthermore, there will be low levels of blood oxygenation. Excess mucus doesn’t just impact your lungs, it impacts your sleep too. You’ll experience insomnia and difficulty sleeping. Then, since you’re so tired it will be difficult to do complete daily tasks. Overall, this can lead to a poor quality of life. You don’t want that!
The Aerobika device can most certainly be a game changer for you. However, it’s important to note once purchased, we don’t accept returns. This is due to hygiene reasons.
