What is Aerosure Medic

Aerosure Medic is a hand-held respiratory device which may help to reduce breathlessness and improve mucus clearance. Aerosure Medic is drug-free and designed to help relieve these symptoms. Powered by built-in rechargeable batteries, Aerosure Medic is a portable and easy to use device.

Aerosure is intended to:

  • Reduce shortness of breath and relieve breathlessness with regular use.

  • Increase respiratory fitness with regular use.
  • Improve mucus and phlegm clearance.

Benefits of Aerosure

Aerosure is intended to:

  • Reduce shortness of breath and relieve breathlessness with regular use.
  • Increase respiratory fitness with regular use.
  • Improve mucus and phlegm clearance.

Aerosure combines the two well established techniques of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) and oscillatory positive pressure (OPEP). More details on these technologies can be found on the Health Information page.

Who Can't Use Aerosure

Aerosure Medic should not be used by people who:

  • Have epilepsy
  • Currently have or previously had Pneumothorax (collapsed lung)
  • Have haemodynamic instability (abnormally high or low blood pressure, very slow or very fast heart rate) including severe right-sided heart failure with hypotension
  • Currently have a Pulmonary Embolism (blood clot in the blood vessels in the lungs)
  • Have oesophageal varices (enlarged veins in the walls of the oesophagus)
  • Have recently had thoracic (chest) or upper gastro-intestinal tract (duodenum, stomach, oesophagus) surgery or trauma until completely healed
  • Have acute sinusitis or an active nosebleed
  • Are experiencing active haemoptysis (coughing up blood)
  • Are pregnant
  • Have raised intracranial pressure (abnormally high pressure in the skull and brain)

If you are unsure of the suitability of AeroSure for you or are unsure about the cause of your symptoms, you should seek medical advice.

 

How Aerosure Works

 

Aerosure Medic works by spinning a valve inside the device at high speed to rapidly open and close the flow of air in to and out of the lungs. As you breathe through the mouthpiece the oscillating valve creates a resistance, vibrating the chest wall to work the lung muscles harder and improve respiratory fitness. You may feel this resistance and minimal breathing effort may be required. You should breathe normally.

Aerosure has 2 settings which can be selected depending on the treatment you require.

 
Turning on device and choosing Mucus Relief Mode

The Mucus Relief Mode, 15hz Mucus Relief Mode

Aerosure transmits vibrations via the spinning valve to the chest wall to help dislodge mucus from the airways and lungs. The 15Hz setting is comparable to the natural motion of cilia (cilia are small hair-like structures found in your lungs and airways that move in a sweeping motion to help clear mucus and foreign particles).

For Mucus Relief

  1. Turn Aerosure on by holding down the power button for 2 seconds. The mucus relief symbol will now be lit and you will hear the motor run.
  2. Place the mouthpiece in your mouth sealing your lips around the shield to create a seal.
  3. Breathe through Aerosure as per users manual and then remove the device from your mouth before coughing to clear the mucus.
Turning on device and choosing Breathe Easier Mode

The Breathe Easier Mode, 25hz Breathe Easier Mode

Resistance creates an increase in lung pressure and targets the muscles of respiratory. This helps to work the respiratory to help keep airways open, as well as working breathing muscles harder, which with regular use improves respiratory fitness and may result in reduced breathlessness.

  1. Turn Aerosure on by holding down the power button for 2 seconds.
  2. Then press the power button once more to select the Breathe Easier mode. The Breathe Easier symbol will now be lit and you will hear the motor increase in speed.
  3. Place the mouthpiece in your mouth sealing your lips around the shield to create a seal.
  4. Breathe through Aerosure as per users manual.

Once your session is complete, press the power button to turn it off.

Always read the label. Refer to the user’s guide for further information.

Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT)

Inspiratory Muscle Training is a technique used to increase respiratory fitness by improving the performance of the muscles involved in inhalation.

Aerosure Medic is designed to rapidly interrupt airflow, causing airflow resistance, making Aerosure comparable to other inspiratory muscle training devices. This is supported by:

  • Its similarity in mechanism of action in IMT to other available respiratory devices
  • Clinical study data for Aerosure Medic and comparable respiratory devices

Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP)

Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) devices help inhaled air get behind mucus in the lungs so that mucus can be expelled through coughing/huffing. Oscillating PEP (OPEP) works in the same way as PEP with the additional benefit of oscillation, which causes vibrations to help dislodge the mucus from the airways and lungs before it is cleared through coughing.

This is supported by:

  • Its similarity in terms of mode of action in OPEP
  • Clinical study data for Aerosure and comparable devices

Unique Features of Aerosure

Aerosure Medic is designed to overcome the performance limitations of some other PEP devices as it is electrically driven. Other comparable devices are dependent on the user holding the product at the correct angle and achieving the correct exhalation pressure in order to prove effective. As Aerosure is electrically driven it is effective regardless of the position of the device and pressure generated by the user.

The frequency of the rotating valve is set by the speed of the motor, and is not affected by the exhalation pressure generated by the user.

Aerosure operates at a frequency to aid mucus clearance, regardless of technique.
