What is PEP Therapy?

Positive expiratory pressure (PEP) therapy is an airway clearance technique for Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients. It involves breathing with a slightly active expiration against an expiratory resistance. It is used for the clearance of excess lung secretions, reduction of gas trapping, and improvement of lung ventilation. PEP is a small device that a patient exhales into using a mask. The PEP device creates pressure in the lungs and keeps the airways from closing. It takes about four times as long to breathe out against the resistance than it does to breathe in. A positive expiratory pressure (PEP) breathing device uses inhalation and exhalation to keep the lungs healthy.

OPEP device includes an additional component that vibrates and creates oscillations or flutter effects. The flutter device is a controlled vibration system that gently oscillates the small and large airways in the lungs. The oscillation greatly improves the mobilization and clearance of mucus.
