CoughAssist Mechanical Insufflator-Exsufflator CoughAssist is a noninvasive therapy that safely and consistently removes secretions in patients with an ineffective ability to cough (peak cough flow <270 l/m).

 Typical CoughAssist patients include those with the following conditions:

  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Spinal muscular atrophy
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Post-polio

CoughAssist clears secretions by gradually applying a positive pressure to the airway, then rapidly shifting to negative pressure. The rapid shift in pressure produces a high expiratory flow, simulating a natural cough.

  • Safe, noninvasive alternative to suctioning
  • Easy for patients and caregivers to operate

CoughAssist Flexibility

  • Can be used with a face mask, mouthpiece or with an adapter to a patient's endotracheal or tracheostomy tube
  • Approved for home use in adults and children
  • Available in automatic and manual models
