Effectiveness of a new mobile HFCWO device for airway clearance in CF patients
Fluidda studied the effectiveness of a new mobile HFCWO device for airway clearance in CF patients.
High-frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO) is a commonly used airway clearance technique for cystic fibrosis patients. The study aimed to assess the effectiveness of a newly developed mobile HFCWO device, with a standard non-mobile device as comparator.
The results, earlier presented as a poster at the ERS 2019 conference in Madrid, are now published.
It was concluded that the mobile and standard HCWO devices were comparable in improving mucus transport in CF patients according to interpretation of Brody scores and Functional Respiratory imaging (FRI) parameters.
