The patient inhale larger then normal tidal volume.
Breath pressures that provide a volume slightly less then their FRC.
Do not use diaphragmatic breathing.
Forcefully use a huffing maneuver to clear their secretions.
Is a worthy alternative to Chest Physio-therapy.

The expiratory time should be between 0.4 and 0.6 seconds
The tidal volume should be between 4ml - 6ml per kg
Should have the high pressure set at the mean airway pressure of the previous mode
Should start at 28 cmH20 or less if first mode on a patient
The low pressure (peep or low CPAP) should be 0 cmH20

Switch to 2.5 mg Albuterol
Decrease the levalbuterol dose to 0.31 mg
Continue this dose (0.63) of levalbuterol.
Send the patient home after telling them to always use their inhaler
