Monaghan Aerobika Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure (OPEP) Therapy System is a convenient, user-friendly device that provides clinicians and patients with a means for reliable, drug-free and natural airway clearance. Aerobika OPEP system opens up weak or collapsed airways by creating positive pressure and oscillations simultaneously, which helps move mucus to the upper airways where it can be coughed out. Use of Aerobika OPEP improves the ability of a patient to bring up mucus, decreases breathlessness and cough frequency, and increases exercise tolerance, resulting in an enhanced quality of life. Aerobika OPEP is helpful for people who have chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, COPD and cystic fibrosis and often produce an excessive amount of mucus.

Airway with a mucus

plug

Resistance holds
the airway open

Pulses help thin and

loosen mucus while

the airways are held open


When you exhale through the device, you will feel very quick pulses of resistance against your exhaled breath. These pulses of resistance hold your airways open and help shake the excess mucus loose, pushing it out of the smaller airways; it can then be coughed out. The degree of resistance can be changed depending on your comfort level. There is a valve inside the Aerobika OPEP device that switches quickly between higher and lower resistance creating positive pressure inside your airways. If you have nebulizer treatments, your health care professional may even opt to combine them with your OPEP therapy to reduce therapy time and improve patient compliance.

What Is An Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure Therapy System?

An Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure Therapy System, or OPEP device, is designed to aid in the loosening and removal of mucus buildup in the lungs. You may need OPEP treatments if you have a lung disease such as cystic fibrosis or COPD where your lungs need help keeping up with the amount of mucus produced each day. OPEP therapy is done by inhaling and exhaling through the device several times, then Huff Coughing to remove the loosened mucus.

What Is Huff Cough?

Huff Cough will help move mucus up and out of your lungs. Just like when you use your breath to create fog on a mirror, you would take a short, shallow breath and exhale forcefully with your mouth in an O shape.

Application Instructions Of Aerobika OPEP1. Examine device.
Application Instructions Of Aerobika OPEP2. Choose any orientation.
Application Instructions Of Aerobika OPEP3. Insert mouthpiece.
Application Instructions Of Aerobika OPEP4. Inhale deeply and hold breath for 2 to 3 seconds.
Application Instructions Of Aerobika OPEP5. Exhale for 3 to 4 times longer than the inspiratory breath.
Application Instructions Of Aerobika OPEP6. Continue for 10 to 20 breaths or as instructed by your health care provider. Perform 2 to 3 Huff coughs to clear airway.
Application Instructions Of Aerobika OPEP7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 for 10 to 20 minutes or as prescribed.

Cleaning Of Aerobika OPEP:

  • Recent facial, oral, or skull surgery or trauma
  • Acute sinusitis
  • Epistaxis (bleeding nose)

  • Expert clinical judgment should be exercised in the selection of the appropriate setting for each individual patient.
  • Failure to match the appropriate resistance setting on the Adjustment Indicator with the patient expiratory flow may result in failure to achieve therapeutic objectives of OPEP therapy or one or more adverse side effects listed below.
  • Adverse reactions may include:
    - Increased work of breathing that may lead to hypoventilation and hypercarbia
    - Increased cranial pressure
    - Cardiovascular compromise
    - Myocardial ischemia
    - Decreased venous return
    - Air swallowing with increased likelihood of vomiting and aspiration
