Percussion Applicators, Respiratory Therapy

Definition : Percussion applicators designed to apply percussion to the chest to obtain a high-frequency oscillation (HFO) of the air column in the conducting airways. These applicators typically consist of a handheld device that has a small integral pad made of rubber or plastic material at one end and a handle for manipulation. The applicator is connected to an airway clearance unit that provides electric or pneumatic power and regulates the frequency and intensity of the percussions. Respiratory therapy percussion applicators are used to facilitate secretion removal in therapeutic procedures, including the treatment of cystic fibrosis and other pulmonary, neuromuscular, or neurological disorders that affect normal secretion of mucous from the airways.
