Efficacy and Tolerance Study on the Use of the In-exsufflator in the Hospitalized Elderly

Status: Recruiting
Location: See location...
Intervention Type: Device
Study Type: Observational
SUMMARY

The mechanical in-exsufflator (MI-E) is a medical device used to facilitate coughing when the patients' cough is not efficient. Studies have shown positive results in helping airway clearance in children and adults with neuromuscular disorders however there is lack of evidence in older populations. This study's aim is to evaluate the feasibility of the MI-E in older adults. The hypothesis is that the use of MI-E in older adults is feasible.
