Flutter Valve device is used for Breathing Therapy by helping patients dislodge mucus and other secretions from the airways. The Flutter mucus clearance device is highly portable and easy to use. This Flutter Valve is also known as the Acapella Flutter Valve because of its three action mechanisms. First, the Flutter device aides in the removal of mucus and other secretions. Second, the Flutter valve provides a positive expiratory pressure (PEP), which helps hold airways open. Third and last is airway oscillation. Flutter valve therapy helps vibrate mucus away from airway walls and produces an intermittent acceleration flow. This acceleration helps push mucus upward for expectoration; thereby, clearing the air passage ways.
The Cough Assist Flutter device is shaped like a pipe and has a hardened plastic mouthpiece at one end, a perforated plastic cover at the other end and a stainless steel ball resting in a plastic circular cone on the inside. The Flutter Mucus Deviceserves patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) such as asthma, atelectasis, bronchitis, brochiectasis, cystic fibrosis, or other conditions producing retained secretions.

Flutter Valve Clearance Device
The Flutter mucus clearing device operates by having the patient blow into the mouthpiece. The vibrations caused by intermittent air flow though the flutter chamber loosens mucus and secretions for the patient. This positive expiratory pressure helps the patient expel mucus and phlegm. The flutter action is caused by the vibrating steel ball within the flutter chamber, causing a non-invasive airway oscillation.
The Flutter mucus clearance device can be used by any age. Its small size and weight allows the patient to take it with them where ever they go.

It is very efficient in removing the mucus in my patient’s airways. Thus, this is the best for me.
- Flutter Valve Mucus Removal Device Review
I carry this wherever I go. I have severe asthma and phlegm and mucus has been a problem ever since. Which is an issue because I work at an office, with little or no time to go to the washroom. This is very handy for me and it really is very easy to use as it claims.
- The CardinalHealth Flutter Value is very helpful.
This flutter valve is most helpful in clearing my lungs.
- Great Tool
small enough to keep on you and works great to get up the mucus
It's small and simple and surprisingly effective. It's extremely helpful in dislodging the mucus from the lungs, and with a few simple blows, the mucus begins to come up and out. It's a lifesaver.
- simple, effective, remarkable
It's a simple device, easy to use, and incredibly effective at loosening mucus. I highly recommend the flutter valve. Small investment, great results.
- Excellent Device
I have used the flutter valve for many years. It really aids in breaking up mucus in your lungs. Just follow the directions and you will have good results. It is a great product.
I don't use it often but when I need it the device works well. Need to work at it for 5 minutes or so.
- This product does what it was designed to do -- remove mucus from lungs.
Great product at the most inexpensive price anywhere.
- really great results for me
for me, this flutter valve, though so simple, is one of the best adjuncts for airway clearance I have found in my entire lifetime. Used properly, this works very well for me, to clear secretions that I cannot clear just by coughing on my own.
