Features of the Respironics Threshold PEP: Threshold PEP is used for airway clearance, bronchial hygiene, or as an alternative to chest physical therapy. Threshold PEP incorporates a flow-independent one-way valve to ensure consistent resistance with adjustable specific pressure settings (in cm H20) which are set by the healthcare professional. When patients exhale through Threshold PEP, the resistive load creates positive pressure that helps open the airways and allows mucus to be expelled during "huff" coughing (forced expiratory technique).
Flow-independent one-way valve.
Constant pressure (regardless of patient’s airflow) eliminates the need for a pressure indicator.
Easy to set, truly adjustable pressure (PEP in 1 cm H2O; IMT in 2 cm H2O increments).
Effective therapy when held in any position.
Can be used with mouthpiece or mask.
Easy to clean.
