Aerobika – OPEP Therapy (Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure)
This Aerobika OPEP device would work best in conjunction with salt therapy for any respiratory illnesses affecting the lungs. The salt aerosol helps in detaching the mucus from the respiratory system. It does this by liquefying the mucus, so that the Aerobika oscillating expiratory pressure will quicken the elimination process.
An OPEP device is best indicated in chronic respiratory illnesses, with increased mucus production: 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 in connection with any OPEP device or vibratory vest, will make a big difference in clearing the airways.
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, helping to move the stagnant mucus upward. It would be best to use Aerobika in the morning, after using the SaltAir device during the night. It will ease the mucus elimination and be more effective.
Excess and stagnant mucus in your lungs can cause:
- Shortness of breath
- Difficult breathing
- Increase risk of lungs infections
- Low blood oxygenation
- Insomnia or difficult sleep
- Fatigue and difficulty in completing simple chores
- Sinus Infections
- Ear Infections
- Poor quality of life
Note: Please note that Aerobika is not accepted to be returned for refund due to hygiene reason.
