PEGASO COUGH
COUGH ASSISTANT VENTILATOR

REMOVAL OF BRONCHIAL SECRETIONS

The PEGASO COUGH works as a Cough Assistant Ventilator. It is a ventilation system useful in clearing retained bronchopulmonary secretions. It provides a patient “cough” simulation, applying a positive pressure to the airways, then rapidly going to a negative pressure.   At the end of this pressure shifting, the PEGASO COUGH leaves the airways free at zero or ambient pressure, for a pause time determined by the operator
