Mucus Clearance

Expectoration loosens phlegm in the throat making it easier to cough it up. They tend to be medicines, however there is an effective drug-free alternative that are mucus clearance devices.

Phlegm is produced by the lower airways and is a type of mucus. You usually find phlegm in the back of the throat or in the lungs, whereas mucus is found inside the nose. Phlegm is usually thicker and more viscous than mucus that can be cleared by blowing your nose.

Getting rid of phlegm however is slightly more difficult and needs to be coughed up. Phlegm clearance is very important for people with conditions such as pulmonary fibrosis, bronchiectasis and cystic fibrosis, because phlegm contains virus and dead bacteria.

You can help your body to break up phlegm by loosening it with the POWERbreathe Shaker device; an effective, drug-free alternative to medicinal expectorants.

The Shaker is a gravity-dependent OPEP (oscillatory positive expiratory pressure) device and a 2018 study found “the gravity-dependent devices were the ones to display close mechanical performances and produce optimal operational parameters at the simulated exhalation settings.”

Each Shaker device breaks up the phlegm in your chest to make it easier for you to cough it up.
