Blue DM < 15 Liters for 3 Seconds- Acapella Vibratory Pep Therapy Flutter Valve




Green DH > 15 Liters for 3 Seconds Acapella Vibratory PEP Therapy Flutter Valve





Acapella Flutter Valve is a Respiratory and acapella device used for Breathing Therapy that combines the benefits of PEP therapy and airway vibrations to mobilize pulmonary secretions. Manufactured by Portex, the Acapella Vibratory PEP Therapy Flutter Valve can be used sitting down, standing or reclined. Another benefit to PEP therapy and a vibratory flutter valve is that it is much easier to tolerate than Chest Physical Therapy (CPT) and takes half the time of a conventional CPT session. Technically speaking, the flutter valve facilitates the opening of airways in patients with lung disease who have secretory problems such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Asthma, or Cystic Fibrosis. The vibratory flutter valve comes with instructions as well on how to operate the device and optimally use it to your benefit.

Two Options with the Acapella Vibratory PEP Therapy Flutter Valve

There are two color-coded options when using the Acapella Vibratory PEP Therapy Flutter Valve, blue and green. The blue model is low-flow, working less than 15 liters per minute (LPM) for three seconds, and the green model of this acapella device is high flow, working more than 15 LPM for three seconds. If you are unsure which model you are best suited for, we suggest consulting your doctor. Each flutter valve model is designed based on clinical needs. You can, however, adjust the Acapella PEP therapy device's frequency and flow resistance by adjusting a dial.

Portex also manufactures an Acapella Valve that disassembles for cleaning called Acapella Choice. The Acapella Flutter Valve can be easily cleaned by removing the mouth piece, rinsing with warm soapy water and letting it air dry.

Product works well
The Acapella works on loosening matter in the lungs well enough so that it can be brought up. You must remember to huff at the end of your exercise for it to work.
good product
great price worked great for me I love it .
Acapella Flutter works great.
I ordered Acapella Flutter Valve with the lowest cost shipping and got it in 2 days. Vitality Medical was great and the Acapella Flutter Valve works great and has really helped my problem.
life changing
This device, along with the Lung Flute, has improved my quality of life remarkably. I recommend this to friends with similar breathing problems. They experience similar improvements. My lung congestion had cleared up with use of PEP therapy where it no longer plays a part in ly life.
3 stars -- I will give it 5 stars if I can clean it!
I like the product and have used it but I am stuck on the cleaning instructions #. 4. "Lift cover by pressing forefinger and thumb along ribbed surfaces by mouthpiece. It opens to a 90 degree angle." I can't get the 90 degree angle and I am unable to clean the device.
