What is Vibratory PEP?

Vibratory PEP Therapy is a drug-free supplemental treatment for COPD and excessive secretions that adds back pressure and vibrations to the patient’s expired breath.

  • Reduce air trapping, common with asthma and COPD
  • Prevent or reverse atelectasis
  • Help mobilize retained secretions related to cystic fibrosis and chronic bronchitis
  • Optimize the delivery of bronchodilators
