The respiratory therapy device RC-Cornet® PLUS makes it easier for patients with asthma, COPD and cystic fibrosis to breathe.
Breathe easier with the respiratory therapy device RC-Cornet® PLUS
Elevated secretions of bronchial mucous are common in chronic diseases of the lower airways. Shortness of breath, chronic cough and frequent respiratory tract infections are among the consequences.
The respiratory therapy device RC-Cornet® PLUS can combat these symptoms. As the patient exhales a oscillating positive exhalation pressure (OPEP) is produced, widening the airways and reducing respiratory distress. It also effectively mobilises bronchial mucous and thereby reduces the urge to cough. The entire volume of exhaled air is used to cleanse the airways.
The respiratory therapy with RC-Cornet® PLUS noticeably improves the symptoms of patients with chronic diseases of the lower airways after a short, regular period of use.
- Bronchial asthma
- COPD and pulmonary emphysema
- Cystic fibrosis
- Smoker’s cough
Effective and easy to use
RC-Cornet® PLUS is a further development of RC Cornet®. It has many innovative elements that make daily use easier.
Modern design and innovative features of RC-Cornet® PLUS:
Sounds are produced during therapy, giving the patient feedback whether the device is being used properly.
The setting options for two different forms of treatment and 4 different levels of resistance personalise therapy for the patient – regardless of the exhaled air volume.
The new valve lets the patient inhale and exhale through the device without interruption.
Using the integrated nebuliser connection, respiratory and inhalation therapy can be administered at the same time (combi-therapy), improving drug deposition and shortening the duration of therapy.
Use, cleaning and hygiene routines meet clinical requirements.
Widen airways and relieve respiratory distress
Setting 1 on RC-Cornet® PLUS produces a stabilising oscillating positive exhalation pressure (stabilising OPEP) when the patient exhales steadily. Obstructions are opened and thus parts of the aveoli are ventilated. This reduces respiratory distress!
Mobilise secretions in congested bronchi
Setting 1 on RC-Cornet® PLUS produces a mobilising oscillating positive exhalation pressure (mobilising OPEP) by gradually increasing the pressure as the patient exhales and allowing it to fall abruptly. This mobilises and liquefies obstructing and thick secretions on the walls of the bronchial tubes. The mucous is transported upward towards the mouth and is easier to cough up.
Prevent exacerbations and reduce susceptibility to infections
By widening the airways and mobilising obstructing bronchial mucous, coughs are made “productive” (mobilise secretions) and enabling it to fulfil its cleansing function. This relieves the urge to cough, the risk of respiratory tract infections and frequently hospitalisations.
RC Cornet PLUS, RC Cornet PLUS NASAL and RC Cornet PLUS Tracheo are fully compatible, it is very easy to simply switch to the Oval Mouthpiece, Nasal or Tracheostomy setup.
