Portable High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation Vest
High-frequency chest wall oscillation is an airway clearance technique in which external chest wall oscillations are applied to the chest using an inflatable vest that wraps around the chest. These devices use positive and negative pressure changes to increase peripheral and tracheal mucus movement toward the airway opening. High-frequency air pulses to the vest making oscillatory chest wall compressions, thinning mucus, and clearing airways.
