The Frequencer® technology uses sound waves to facilitate the evacuation of pulmonary secretions and is therefore very gentle and safe. These treatments make it possible to modify the rheological properties of the mucus in the bronchioles so that it is evacuated more easily to the larger bronchi.Learn more
The prevalence of airway clearance disorders is enormous. In addition to significant quality of life issues and burden on the health care system, life-threatening situations and death may arise when the clearance of mucus from airways is ineffective. Dymedso’s FrequencerTM is a novel device that uses acoustic waves to cause the lungs to vibrate and the viscosity of mucus to decrease, making it more liquid and easier to expectorate.Learn more
In addition to significant quality of life issues and burden on the health care system, life-threatening situations and death may arise when clearance of mucus from airways is ineffective. This white paper reviews normal airway clearance mechanisms and the main airway clearance diseases and disorders, along with standard airway clearance therapies.Learn more
I have been practicing emergency medicine for 30 years. In 1994 I invented an imaging system for teaching intubation, the procedure of inserting breathing tubes. This led me to perform research into this procedure, and subsequently teach airway procedure courses to physicians worldwide for the last two decades.Learn more
