The 30th anniversary of the ERS International Congress is an innovative and interactive virtual event that will take place on 7–9 September, 2020. Due to COVID-19, the ERS deployed its resources to upload all the scientific content in a virtual platform. We are pleased to have 3 e-Posters about Simeox that have been selected to be shown during ERS2020. Here is below the first one we are happy to introduce:
1. “Physiological effects of Simeox Airway Clearance Device in healthy adults”:
Simeox signal is characterised by highly reproducible oscillatory flow that looks to be very performing and secure.
Summary : Oscillatory vibrations on expiration assist in loosening and mobilizing the secretions in chronic pulmonary diseases. A prospective study in 10 healthy adults subjects aimed to characterize with a flux analyser the oscillatory flow and negative pressure pulses produced by Simeox technology during exhalation. The results showed good performance of the device overpower (25-100%) and frequency (6-12 Hz) range. The data were highly reproducible and negative pressure was safe (-10 to -60 mbar). These data confirmed that Simeox may be an efficient and secure technology for airway clearance therapy.
You’ll find the entire version of the e-Poster here “Physiological effects of Simeox Airway Clearance Device in healthy adults”.
