Acapella Duet, manufactured by Smiths Medical, is a convenient and smart method for combining vibratory PEP, Positive Expiratory Pressure, therapy and nebulized medication delivery. Select the Portex Acapella Duet to save time, money and patient effort with respiratory therapies. Featuring a one-way inspiratory valve, patients are able to inhale without removal from their mouth. In addition, the Portex features an expiratory resistance dial for customized frequency adjustments. To ensure patient comfort, the Portex Acapella Duet has a 22 millimeter O.D. connection that allows use with a mouthpiece or mask. Additionally, the Portex has a 22 millimeter port that will complement most standard SVNs. The SVN port features a tethered cap, which will help to reduce the risk of contamination while in resting position. The Portex's design also features a stand-alone design, which allows it to be free of an SVN attachment. Being extremely lightweight, this device makes it incredibly easy for patients to hold. Truly, the Portex Acapella Duet Kit is perfect for the administration of bronchodilator and mucoluytic treatments in conjunction with vibratory PEP therapy without requiring a tee adapter.
