  • 10. 
    Choose the correct description of how a ThAIRapy Vest works:
    • A. 

      An inflatable vest attaches to hoses to an air-pulsed generator producing pressures to about 40 cm H2O at frequencies of 10-40 Hz. High frequency chest wall oscillation creates mini-coughs that dislodge mucus from the bronchial walls and increases mobilization to the central airways.

    • B. 

      An inflatable vest attaches to hoses to an air-pulsed generator producing pressures to about 50 cm H2O at frequencies of 5-25 Hz. High frequency chest wall oscillation creates mini-coughs that dislodge mucus from the bronchial walls and increases mobilization to the central airways.

    • C. 

      An inflatable vest attaches to hoses to an air-pulsed generator producing pressures to about 10 cm H2O at frequencies of 5-35 Hz. High frequency chest wall oscillation creates mini-coughs that dislodge mucus from the bronchial walls and increases mobilization to the central airways.
