Weighing less than 9 lbs., the new CoughAssist T70 airway clearance device is compact, lightweight and easy to transport.

Small, lightweight and versatile

User-friendly digital interface and preset prescriptions make setting pressures and initiating therapy easy, while a detachable battery allows patients to use the device just about anywhere. An automatic triggering feature enables the device to synchronize with the user's breathing pattern, and tidal volume, peak cough flow and oxygen saturation levels can help you monitor therapy effectiveness.

A natural part of life

Coughing. We often think of a cough as a symptom of a cold or a means to clear our throat. Truth is, the ability to cough is essential to life. Normally, the lining of the airways produces small amounts of mucus which trap dirt and bacteria. If allowed to accumulate, these secretions can result in infection. Coughing is the body’s way of
clearing mucus from the lungs.

Muscles located in our rib cage, neck and abdomen play an important role during coughing. With many diseases, a weakened ability to remove secretions increases the chance of a respiratory infection. If coughing becomes difficult, your physician may prescribe the use of a manual and/or mechanical-assisted coughing technique. A manual cough assist involves applying firm and rapid pressure to the upper abdomen, forcing air out of the lungs.

CoughAssist T70 is a mechanical insufflation-exsufflation device thatdoes just that. It simulates a natural cough by gradually delivering a large volume of air to your lungs, similar to a normal deep breath, when you breathe in (positive pressure), and then quickly reversing the flow of secretions out (negative pressure). CoughAssist T70 makes your cough more effective to help keep your airways clear, reducing the chance of respiratory infections. It also incorporates a triggering feature called Cough-Trak that allows you to synchronize treatment with your own breathing patterns.
