Percussion vest

I have the Hill-Rom vest. I strongly suggest you try any vest for at least a month before purchasing one. For me, it was minimally effective and a bother to use. What has really worked as an airway clearance for me is 3% hypertonic saline via nebulizer. It is inexpensive, relatively fast and easy to use. I use it twice a day and it really does a wonderful job of bringing up mucus. Best wishes!

Is the hypertonic saline an over the counter purchase? Would I need a script from the doc for this?
Thanks so much…..

My doc Rx’d 30 minute “vest” sessions twice daily. Been at it now for over two years. I’m curious about how scrupulously you and others whao use a vest follow a regimen?
