Philips Respironics CoughAssist T70 airway clearance technology – an effective alternative to traditional suctioning methods
Murrysville, Pa., January 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Philips Respironics, a unit of Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA),

The CoughAssist T70 next generation device incorporates proven
technology that’s effective, and easy to use. It clears secretions from
the lungs by gradually applying positive air pressure to the airway
and then rapidly shifting to negative air pressure. The shift in
pressure creates a high expiratory flow that simulates a deep, natural
cough. Instead of introducing a suction catheter into the airway, air
is delivered through a facemask, a mouthpiece or through a simple
adapter that allows the device to function with an endotracheal or
tracheostomy tube, reducing discomfort and risk of infection. In
addition, new design and technology updates have been developed to
enhance patient and clinician use.
Cough-Trak – A unique triggering feature with automatic
sensitivity allows patients to initiate therapy and synchronize
treatment with their own breathing pattern; Portablility – Weighing less than 9 lbs., it is compact, lightweight and easy to transport;Flexibility – In addition to AC and DC power options, a
