Vortran Percussive Nebulizer
The Percussive NEB unit is VORTRAN’s high frequency intrapulmonary percussive
nebulizer. It offers unique single patient,
multiple use, high frequency, intrapulmonary percussive treatments. It is easy to use and preferred by cystic fibrosis patients. In a study, for the treatment of atelectasis in post-operative cardiac surgery patients, the Percussive NEB unit is suggested to be a more effective and efficient use of departmental resources than traditional bronchial hygiene procedures. Improvements in ease of use, durability, dependability and performance attributes have resulted in a device that is user friendly, reliable, and adjustable to patient needs. The pressure dial on the Percussive NEB unit allows users to adjust pressure amplitude and oscillation frequency for individual comfort. It is able to oscillate over a wide frequency and pressure range and is easy to operate within the source flow range. The Percussive NEB unit is designed to oscillate at higher frequencies of 11 to 30 Hz (about 660 to 1800 cycles per minute) to mobilize mucus from the lungs in patients with retained secretions.
