The effectiveness of a mobile high‐frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO) device for airway clearance

Leemans G, Belmans D, Van Holsbeke C, et al.

High‐frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO) is a commonly prescribed airway clearance technique (ACT) for patients whose ability to expectorate sputum is compromised. This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of a newly developed mobile ACT device (mHFCWO—The Monarch Airway Clearance System) in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). A standard nonmobile HFCWO device (sHFCWO) was used as a comparator.
