POWERbreathe Shaker Deluxe mucus clearance device is ideal for people suffering from chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, emphysema, asthma, cystic fibrosis. It is easy-to-use and is therefore enables both children and adults to gain relief quickly and easily, whenever required.
Inside the casing of the POWERbreathe shaker is a weighted ball. By breathing into the Shaker Deluxe, the ball is raised, but then falls under its own weight. This rise and fall action happens extremely quickly and to the user, feels like a vibration. This vibration, combined with the gentle resistance created by breathing against the ball causes a number of positive benefits. Changes in air pressure mean the smaller airways are encouraged to open, increasing lung usage and efficiency. Mucus is thinned or dislodged by the vibration and increased airflow helps this mucus to move to the large airways where gentle coughing can expel it.
Because the POWERbreathe shaker will be exposed to saliva during use, manufacturer recommended to clean mucus clearance device after use. Remove the mouthpiece, unscrew the back case and remove the ball and internal cone. Wash all parts in soapy water, rinse with clean water, dry thoroughly and re-assemble. Once a week we recommend that the device is cleansed using approved cleansing tablets. You can also use a solution that is intended for use on equipment that comes into contact with the mouth, such as that used for babies’ bottles. If in doubt, ask your pharmacist.
POWERbreathe Shaker Deluxe mucus clearance device should not be used by patients with the Pneumothorax, Severe tuberculosis, Right-sided heart failure or Haemoptysis (coughing up blood).
