ABM Respiratory Care BiWaze Cough System
BiWaze Cough is the respiratory therapy system that combines multiple therapies of assisted cough and lung expansion along with high frequency oscillation, BiWaze Cough breaks up and then removes mucus from the lungs by applying positive air pressure (inhale) to the airway and then rapidly shifting to negative air pressure (exhale). After exhale, the pause phase allows the user to rest before the next assisted cough cycle. BiWaze Cough can provide positive pressure flow during the pause phase, creating a higher mean airway pressure which keeps the Functional Residual Capacity higher post exhale and provides a more comfortable therapy for the patient. BiWaze Cough is designed to provide cleaner care, easier implementation and, is a smarter solution.
Multitasking with every cycle, BiWaze Cough is intelligently built to use a combination of high frequency oscillation, lung expansion and assisted cough therapy to break up mucus and clear airways.
BiWaze Cough provides a non-invasive solution to clear secretions from the upper airways. There are two blowers within the control unit which separates inhale and exhale air flow. The Dual Lumen Breathing Circuit is an alternative breathing circuit that extends the separation of air flow through a coaxial filter and coaxial breathing tube. The inhale pathway is through the outer tube and the exhale pathway is through the inner tube. The separation of air flow helps ensure the inhaled air is not contaminated with mucus and bacteria from the exhaled air.
BiWaze Cough has a large 7” touchscreen with a simplified menu navigation and one-touch therapy selection of up to 10 stored profiles.
BiWaze Cough is the smallest and lightest assisted cough device on the market. The and touch screen navigation make it a user friendly therapy. The low profile design comes with a slim carrying bag for convenient portability. The carrying bag has ample room for a patient circuit. The light weight system (9 lbs) has a built in lithium ion battery which can deliver up to 2 hours of continuous therapy* on one battery charge.
