Idiopathic subglottal stenosis and expulsion of mucus
My adult daughter was diagnosed with this disease about 2 years ago. She has had one surgery but continues to have a lot of trouble continually coughing and being able to expel the mucus buildup. Has anyone tried a High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation Vest. These vests are commonly used by people with Cystic Fibrosis to loosen the mucus so it can be expelled. I wondered if anyone had tried one and if they are effective for idiopathic subglottal stenosis. I wondered if this could extend the time between surgeries. The surgeries are not inexpensive and if this vest would help reduce the number of surgeries required it could be worth the investment. Thanks for any comments.
