PORTEX Coach 2 Incentive spirometers are used to help patients improve the functioning of their lungs.The breathing exercises are designed to help patients take long deep breaths, similar to a yawn. The deep breathing improves the ability to clear mucus from the lungs and may also increase the amount of oxygen getting into the lungs.
Coach® 2 makes incentive spirometry easier for patients and staff alike. The one-way valve ensures patients inhale, rather than exhale into the unit. A highly-visible piston, easy to understand graphics (indicating correct inspiratory flowrate), and instructions in the base, help patients perform and monitor their own post-surgical breathing exercises without direct supervision. Other features include an
02 connection for supplemental oxygen, convenient handle, flexible popple tubing and bedrail holder.
