Advice about airway clearance devices
I'm newly diagnosed with bronchiectasis and MAC, based on CT findings and bronchoscopy. No symptoms yet and not bringing up much mucus after 6 weeks of airway clearance with nebulizer and acapella, although adding some chest percussion recently might be helping. CT scan to review whether this is working planned after 6 months. The philosophy seems to start with the simplest treatment, even if it is possibly not that effective, but I'd like to get the gunk out of there the most effective way possible. I'm willing to invest more in time or resources if that would be useful. Does anyone have opinions or experience about the Aerobika versus Acapella and has anyone used the Vibralung, which uses soundwaves to break up mucus? Are any of you non CF patients using mucolytics and if so, which?
Thanks for any advice
