Study shows COPD device effective in deterring mucus buildup

Data from a study on a new nondrug treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients was presented yesterday at the European Respiratory Society Conference in Munich, Germany. It offered evidence that Trudell Medical's Aerobika OPEP hand-held device is beneficial for COPD patients with recurring mucus buildup. Addressing the mucus buildup can help avoid the bacteria growth and infection battle these patients often face, reducing their need for drugs and improving their overall quality of life. The device is available in Canada, the U.S. (through Monaghan Medical), Mexico, and some European countries including Germany. Release
