Acapella With Nebulization in Normal Subjects

2014-08-27 03:14:39 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Background:

Devices used to facilitate mucus mobilization have been target of several controversies and mainly a few scientific studies that endorse the use of those equipments. According to the principle of acapella® device, it should be used concomitant with nebulization aiming to optimize its performance in bronchial hygiene.

Aims: To assess the effect of acapella® device application in the radioaerosol regional pulmonary deposition through pulmonary scintigraphy in normal subjects.

Materials and method: 10 health individuals, males and mean age of 24,4 ± 2,2 years participated in this study during the three phases of this research: 1st phase were done with nebulization through acapella® device, attached in the final branch according to manufacturer recommendation; in 2nd phase a ¨T¨tube connector were adapted, being nebulizer attached to the mouthpiece and in 3rd phase nebulization were performance through the mouthpiece as routinely used in aerosoltherapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.

Surgical reinnervation of a denervated peripheral target using a healthy donor nerve and/or its proximal stump. The direct connection is usually made to a healthy postlesional distal portion of a non-functioning nerve or implanted directly into denervated muscle or insensitive skin. Nerve sprouts will grow from the transferred nerve into the denervated elements and establish contact between them and the neurons that formerly controlled another area.

Process of evaluating the health of a patient and determining if they are healthy enough for surgery.

Dietary patterns which have been found to be important in reducing disease risk.
