The Pegaso Family line devices (Pegaso A-Cough Perc, Pegaso Plus Combi, etc.), in addition to operating cough assistance therapy, they favor peripheral lung drainage in the Percussor mode.
Percussive therapy improves the homogeneity of ventilation in the lungs, increasing alveolar ventilation and mobilizing deep secretions. In order to obtain these benefits, the striker sends the patient high frequency air boluses, creating a continuous positive expiratory pressure, which will be different from patient to patient. In order to obtain the desired results it is important to use appropriate settings for each patient.
