    What is a caugh assist machine

    Can anyone tell me what a caugh machine is?

    How it works?

    How do I use it?

    Do I need to undergo a operation?

    cough assist is a machine that helps you create a deeper more effective cough. much better than Ambu bag method and easier to do yourself.

    you use a mask and hold it too nose/mouth. and it encourages the cough.

    No operation.

    the link below is for physios so cant log in but it shows a decent pic of someone using such a machine. nice small machine too I have only ever seen older huger models.

    very useful support group on facebook if you have it “Breathe with MD Support Group” very friendly bunch. ask anything and someone will reply often with a video.
