    The article presents a study on the efficacy of pursued lips breathing with forced expiration techniques (PLB & FETs) and active cycle of breathing technique (ACBT) in healthy subjects on pulmonary mucus clearance. The study used the radioaerosol technique to measure three healthy subjects on...

    Chronic cough and sputum production are common features of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and have a significant impact on exacerbation frequency and quality of life. Despite this, techniques to assist with removal of sputum from the airway do not have a well-defined role in COPD...

    The article presents information on the features of mechanical in-exsufflation (MI-E). Patients with impaired cough require assistance with airway clearance to maintain airway patency and normal ventilation. A cough maneuver generates higher flows than a forced expiratory maneuver. Air stacking...

    The possibility to relate the nature of the forced expiration tracheal sounds with the sound radiation by a separated flow that arises in the region of dynamic trachea constriction during forced expiration is investigated. A mathematical model of forced expiration is used for estimating. The...

    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...

    The tracheal sounds during forced expiration were studied using the mathematical model of forced expiration. It has been shown that separated flow in the region of dynamic constriction of the trachea during forced expiration may cause the generation of tracheal sounds.

    BACKGROUND: Manual hyperinflation can be used to assist mucus clearance in intubated patients. The technique's effectiveness to move mucus is underpinned by its ability to generate flow bias in the direction of expiration, and this must exceed specific thresholds. It is unclear whether the...

    Introduction: Pulmonary function abnormalities have been described in multiple sclerosis including reductions in forced vital capacity (FVC) and cough but the time course of this impairment is unknown. Peak cough flow (PCF) is an important parameter for patients with respiratory muscle weakness...

  • Cough expired volume and airflow rates during sequential induced cough. Hegland, Karen W.; Troche, Michelle S.; Davenport, Paul W. // Frontiers in Physiology;Jul2013, Vol. 4, p1 

    Cough effectiveness is determined by a combination of volume of air expired and maximum expiratory airflow rate. Studies of cough sensitivity identify cough thresholds based on at least 2 or 5-cough re-accelerations to a stimulus, however, to date no study has examined the interplay between the...

    BACKGROUND: Slow expiration with glottis opened in lateral posture (ELTGOL, l'expiration lente totale glotte ouverte en infralatéral) has been used in clinical practice to improve mucus clearance from peripheral airways. The purpose of this crossover study was to evaluate the effect of ELTGOL...
