- FULFILLS ITS PURPOSE
I would strongly recommend the Choice Flutter Valve over the other Acapella valves. You can adjust theChoice valve to your ability to exhale and produce the flutter vibration that helps bring the phlegm up so it can be expelled. I was pleased with the speed in which my order arrived. My brother who suffers from asthma was visiting and (because you can clean the Choice) he tried it. He was amazed at how it helped clear his bronchi of sputum. He got on the phone and ordered one for himself. I'm not saying this is a miracle product, but I am saying that it has helped me clear my airways in a manner I cannot do without this device. It would have been appreciated if there had been instructions that included more than a description of the parts. To find out how to efficiently use the Acapella Choice, go to You Tube. There are several very good videos you can watch to make up for the missing instructions. I am still not sure which setting takes the least amount of exhaled air to work and which setting takes the most. During the 15 minutes I use the Choice, I start on 5 and move to 1. Is that because I have more exhaled air when I start; or is it because my lungs have been cleared of some phlegm and I actually have more exhaled air and can operate the Choice on setting #1...or am I tiring and I don't have enough exhaled air to operate on setting 5 thru 2...so, I end at 1? Some days, I start at level 3 and stay there throughout the exercise. Whatever the setting, the results are worth the effort! I like the fact that I can attach my nebulizer to the Choice and accomplish both exercise and medication all at the same time. The Choice is worth the chance you take when you purchase an item with which you are not familiar. Good luck to all!
- Helps my COPD!
Using this 2 or 3 times per day helps loosen the phlegm from my lungs. Clearing the phlegm makes my breathing much easier & my morning walks far more enjoyable. Excellent product & easily cleaned (as opposed to other products of this type).
- It's All Good
I received the Acapella Choice in a sealed, sterile bag, well-wrapped and shipped under the free shipping offer. It arrived in under a week from across the country.
This is a replacement for a broken flutter valve. Great service and great price. Thanks
- Acapella Flutter Valve
The acapella is a requirement for me and works fine most of the time. I have received a couple that the plastic movable part does not work just right but I have not had trouble getting them replaced. I have had some confusion over the cleaning. It says that you can boil them but in my experience that ruins the interior flutter valve, so I soak that part in alcohol and boil the rest. The rest develops a dusty looking film after so much boiling but then you aren't supposed to use them more than 6 months.
- it isa overpriced for what it is designed to do.
product is ovepriced It had no directions enclosed. It is not worth the moneyl.
- Acapella Choice
The Acapella Choice is the flutter valve I would recommend because you can take it apart, clean it in the dishwasher and reuse it over and over. It is much more effective than the standard version which does not come apart and is much more difficult to clean and sanitize.
