    Background: Airway clearance techniques are an important part of the routine care of patients with bronchiectasis. The use of the Flutter, a hand held pipe-like device causing oscillating positive expiratory pressure within the airways, has been proposed as an alternative to more conventional...

    Background and Purpose. Individuals with cystic fibrosis (CF) have large amounts of infected mucus in their lungs, which causes irreversible lung tissue damage. Although patient-administered positive expiratory pressure (PEP) breathing has been promoted as an effective therapeutic modality for...

    BACKGROUND: Forced expiration may assist secretion movement by manipulating airway dynamics in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). Expiratory resistive breathing via a handheld incentive spirometer has the potential to control the expiratory flow via chosen resistances (1-8 mm) and thereby...

    Background: In patients breathing spontaneously during anaesthesia, expiratory muscle activity can be a prominent feature. This activity is triggered or exaggerated by opioid administration, which causes a prompt increase in intra-abdominal pressure. The effect of this increased expiratory...

    Objectives: Children with peripheral airways obstruction suffer the negative effects of intrinsic positive end-expiratory pressure: increased work of breathing and difficulty triggering assisted ventilatory support. We examined whether external positive end-expiratory pressure to...
