Airway Clearance Therapy

High Pressure PEP Therapy

Please speak to a physiotherapist or your CF medical team before commencing any new treatment. DO NOT start using a device, or technique, on this website if you have not discussed this with your CF team first.                  

High pressure PEP therapy was developed in Austria during the 1980’s and is a modification of the original PEP therapy which includes more forceful breaths out into the mask (compared to conventional PEP against a fixed mechanical resistance).

This technique uses the Astra PEP mask system.

Note that this technique requires measuring equipment to set up safely, and should only be performed after consultation with an experienced physiotherapist. If you are interested in this technique it is recommended you discuss this at your CF clinic.
