Rationale and Evidence for Secretion Management with High-Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation (HFCWO)

This Annotated Bibliography provides an overview of recent literature concerning the causes and effects of mucus hypersecretion/retention in COPD with emphasis upon comorbid chronic bronchitis (CB) and bronchiectasis. 

Airway clearance is a daily struggle for people with chronic lung disease. Unfortunately, so is fitting respiratory therapy into their busy schedules. When respiratory therapy and mobility come together, patients are empowered to take control of their therapy—and their lives.
