How to Use the AirPhysio Device

AirPhysio works in three distinct ways: Stage I – Mucus Loosening and Mobilization

Gather a glass of water and box of tissues, relax and assume proper posture and position.

Slowly inhale beyond a normal breath, but do not fill lungs completely.

Hold breath for 2 to 3 seconds.

Place AirPhysio in mouth, exhale through AirPhysio at a reasonably fast but not too forceful speed, using abdominal breathing. Do not empty lungs completely.

Adjust tilt to feel maximum vibrations within chest and keep cheeks stiff.

Repeat steps 2 through 4 for 5 to 10 breaths.

Stage II – Mucus Elimination

Slowly inhale, filling lungs completely.

Hold breath for 2 to 3 seconds.

Place AirPhysio in mouth and exhale forcefully through AirPhysio as completely as possible.

Adjust tilt to feel maximum vibrations within chest and keep cheeks stiff.

Repeat steps 7 through 9 for 1 to 2 breaths.

Initiate cough (or “huff” manoeuvre). Return to Stage 1 and repeat full sequence (Stages 1 and 2) until lungs are clear or therapy is over.

Additional sessions may be added if necessary.

Breathing Exercise for Healthy Individuals

Do the following steps prior to initiation of exercise or training.

Relax and assume proper posture and position.

Slowly inhale beyond a normal breath, but do not fill lungs completely.

Hold breath for 2 to 3 seconds.

Place AirPhysio in mouth, exhale through AirPhysio at a reasonably fast but not too forceful speed, using abdominal breathing. Do not empty lungs completely.

Adjust tilt to feel maximum vibrations within chest and keep cheeks stiff.

Repeat steps 2 through 4 for 5 to 10 breaths.

Caution:

This exercise may make you feel lightheaded. This is normal due to the amount of carbon dioxide being exhaled. When you feel lightheaded, take a break and breathe normally until the lightheaded feeling passes. If you try to overexert and push yourself too far, there is a chance that you may pass out and lose consciousness.

Note:

Clean AirPhysio after each therapy session and store in clean, dry location.
