Respironics CoughAssist T70 helps with the removal of bronchial secretions. The Cough-Assist T70 is safe, simple and effective Mechanical Insufflation-Exsufflation Device. The Cough Assist Mechanical Insufflator-Exsufflator, or Cofflator, safely and effectively clears retained bronco-pulmonary secretions, reducing the risk of Respiratory complications. It comes standard with an adjustable internal inhale-flow restrictor, a simpler breathing circuit, and an optional mobile stand.

The ability to cough is essential to a healthy airway. The airway linings produce mucus which trap dirt and bacteria. This mixture of mucus, dirt and bacteria can be harmful if allowed to accumulate. Coughing is the body's way of clearing mucus form the lungs and airways. Many respiratory diseases cripple the body's ability to cough by weakening the muscles in the rib cage, neck and abdomen. This weakened condition hampers the ability of your body to remove secretions, increasing the chance of respiratory infections. If coughing becomes to difficult for patients, doctors often prescribe the use of Mechanical Coughing Therapy. The Respironics Cough Assist T70 is a mechanical insufflation-exsufflation device that simulates natural coughing by gradually delivering a large volume of air to your lungs. The process of breathing in constitutes positive pressure, followed by a negative pressure of quickly breathing out or coughing helps remove the mucus secretions trapped in your airways. The Respironics CoughAssist T70 enhances your cough to produce a more effective clearing of your airways. The addition of the CoughAssist feature, called the Cough-Trak, allows you to synchronize treatment with your own breathing patterns.

How does the Cough Assist work?

Using a process called mechanical insufflation-exsufflation, the CoughAssist gradually applies a positive pressure to the airway followed by a rapid shift to negative pressure. This rapid shift produces a high expiratory flow from the lungs, simulating a cough. The technique avoids airway damage and offers an alternative to an invasive procedure while still offering patients greater comfort and quality of life.

What conditions does the Cough Assist treat?

The Cough-Assist has been proven effective for patients with an insufficient ability to cough due to:

  • Poliomyelitis
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
  • Myasthenia Gravis
  • Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Or any other neurological disorder with some paralysis of the respiratory muscles, such as a spinal cord injury

What should I consider before purchasing the Cough Assist?

  • Any patient unable to cough or clear secretions effectively due to reduced peak cough expiratory flow (less than 3 liters per second), resulting from high spinal cord injuries, neuromuscular deficits or severe fatigue associated with intrinsic lung disease is a candidate for the CoughAssist.
  • Any patient with a history of bullous emphysema, known susceptibility to pneumothorax, or pneumo-mediastinum, or known to have had any recent barotrauma, should consult seriously with a physician before using.

How is the CoughAssist T70 used?

The Cough Assist is versatile enough to be used with a facemask or mouthpiece Additionally, the Cough Assist can work with an adapter to a patient's endotracheal or tracheostomy tube. It is also safe enough to be used on both adult and pediatric patients at home or in a hospital/institutional environment. Cough Assist is a noninvasive respiratory therapy that safely removes secretions from patients suffering with an ineffective ability to cough. The Cough Assist Device clears secretions by gradually applying a positive pressure to the airway, then rapidly shifting to negative pressure. The rapid shift in pressure produces a high expiratory flow, simulating a natural cough.
