This version is also suitable for individuals with low lung capacity secondary to advanced age, respiratory muscle weakness or severe respiratory conditions.

The Combination Of Positive Pressure And Vibration Generated With OPEP Offers Many Benefits. OPEP Training:

  • Supports the transport of the mucus out of the airways.
  • Promotes lung expansion and helps to unblock airways.
  • Maximizes lung capacity.
  • Helps recruit underutilized parts of the lungs
  • Assists in removing pollutants and inhaled allergens.
  • Helps to reduce mucus build up, eg after infection.
  • Promotes airway clearance and pulmonary hygiene, thereby reducing the risk of new infections and pneumonia.

How to Use the AirPhysio Device

  • Take a deep breathe (abdominal breath) into your lungs and fill them completely.
  • Hold your breathe for 2 to 3 seconds.
  • Place the AirPhysio device into your mouth and exhale through the device at a reasonably fast, but consistent pace for between 3-5 seconds until you empty your lungs. i.e. don’t try and blow too hard too quickly as this may cause you to over exert your lung muscles and leaving you feeling tight in the chest, so take it easy and don’t push too hard.
  • Most people can get it oscillating without too much exertion, but some people struggle to start with. But once your lungs are at optimal lung capacity, you should be able to lift the ball bearing slightly off the cone and have it oscillating.
  • Adjust the device to have the cap facing the ceiling and tilt it until you feel maximum vibrations within your chest, try to keep cheeks stiff to help amplify the affect in your chest.
  • After exhaling through the device, you may feel mucus accumulating near the top of your lungs or at the back of your throat, if so, initiate a cough to expel the mucus. If not, the mucus will continue working up to the throat and maybe swallowed as a normal process.
  • Repeat steps 1 through 6 for approx. 2 times per minute for up to 5 minutes, taking two deep breaths in between each session to reduce the chance of feeling lightheaded.
  • What is the AirPhysio OPEP Device?

    • AirPhysio is a mucus clearance and lung expansion OPEP device. The device uses an all-natural process called Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure (OPEP). This assists the body’s natural cleaning process. This helps to maintain optimal hygiene in the lungs and restores lung capacity.
    • Used in the Treatment of respiratory conditions like Asthma, COPD, Cystic Fibrosis, Bronchiectasis, etc
    • These conditions hinder the body’s ability to clear the contaminated mucus. Your lung capacity is reduced by 5-25 ml/yr for asthmatics and 33 ml /year for smokers. This may cause breathlessness after a small set of stairs or a light jog.
