How Aerosure Works
Aerosure Medic works by spinning a valve inside the device at high speed, to rapidly open and close the flow of air in-to and out-of the lungs. As you breathe through the Mouthpiece the oscillating valve creates a resistance, vibrating the chest wall to work the lung muscles harder and improve respiratory fitness. You may feel this resistance. you should breathe at your normal breathing pace, and breathe as hard as you can in and out through the device.
Aerosure - unique dual-function treatment
Aerosure has 2 modes - each can be selected depending on the treatment you require:
Unique Features of Aerosure
Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT)
Aerosure Medic is designed to rapidly interrupt airflow, causing airflow resistance, making Aerosure comparable to other Inspiratory Muscle Training devices. This is supported by its similarity in mechanism of action in IMT to other available respiratory devices and our clinical study data for Aerosure Medic and comparable respiratory devices.
Oscillatory PEP (OPEP)
Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) devices help inhaled air get behind mucus in the lungs so that mucus can be expelled through coughing/huffing. Oscillatory PEP works in the same way as PEP with the additional benefit of oscillation, which causes vibrations to help dislodge the mucus from the airways and lungs before it is cleared through coughing.
