Clear away lung secretions from the lungs comfortably and easily with the Philips Respironics CoughAssist T70. This easy-to-use device gradually applies positive air pressure into the airway and then rapidly shifts to negative air pressure. This results in a high expiratory flow that simulates a deep, natural cough. The CoughAssist T70 (model 1098160) clears tracheobronchial secretions without requiring a suction catheter in the airway. The device also provides complete monitoring for patients and their caregivers to aid in treatment.
