Respiratory therapy with RC-Cornet® PLUS Tracheo makes it easier for tracheostomised patients with cannulas (tubes) to cough up thick mucus secretions.
Respiratory therapy with RC-Cornet® PLUS Tracheo
Because of the irritation caused by tracheal tubes, tracheostomised patients may produce increased amounts of mucus in the bronchi.
RC-Cornet® PLUS Tracheo is a respiratory therapy device used to alleviate this symptom. It produces an oscillating positive exhalation pressure as the patient exhales that expands the airways and mobilises thick bronchial mucus. Regular use makes it easier for tracheostomised patients to cough up phlegm and reduces the urge to cough and its frequency.
RC-Cornet® PLUS Tracheo is a variant of RC-Cornet® PLUS. The respiratory therapy device can be connected tightly to the cannula (tube) of the tracheostoma by mean a special tracheo connector.
Notes: Patients who have an open tracheostoma can use RC-Cornet® PLUS with the aid of RC-Mask Tracheostoma.
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.
