Do more of what

Managing therapy

If you need to manage treatment for a chronic respiratory disease or condition, you know airway clearance therapy is important. You do your best to fit it into your busy life. But that’s easier said than done. We get it, because we’ve heard it again and again: “I just want to live my life!”

Taking more control of your health and your life is key, and the Monarch airway clearance system may be a new way to do that.

Why airway clearance is important

When mucus cannot be cleared from the lungs, it builds up and creates an environment in which bacteria can grow. This can lead to repeated, serious lung infections, which can cause more damage to the airways of the lungs and a vicious cycle of infection. This cycle may lead to irreversible lung damage and respiratory failure.

Airway clearance techniques and devices

Airway Clearance Techniques (ACTs) loosen thick, sticky mucus so it can be cleared from the lungs by coughing or huffing. These techniques include chest physical therapy, sometimes provided with the help of a caregiver. High-frequency chest wall oscillation devices gently compress and release the chest wall which creates airflow within the lungs. This type of therapy traditionally involves an inflatable garment that is worn and attached to an air pulse generator that rapidly inflates and deflates the garment. The Vest airway clearance system from Hillrom uses this type of therapy and has helped thousands of patients with airway clearance.

Take more control of your life

What if you had more time to do what you love, while still receiving the therapy you need?  Imagine fitting more in your day, doing more of the things you love and taking more control of your life.
