Lung Flute:A new innovation from Old idea
A clever innovation to get the sputum out of the chest in chronic bronchitis and similar conditions.
The Lung Flute uses patented low-frequency acoustic wave technology for optimal secretion clearance and bronchial hygiene. The patient exhales through a mouthpiece over a reed inside the horn of the Lung Flute. The resulting acoustic wave travels retrograde into the lower airways and lung parenchyma, and increases mucociliary clearance.
Unlike conventional respiratory devices, the Lung Flute acoustic wave technology clears and mobilizes secretions deep in the lungs so they are easier to expectorate.
Is it a new Idea?
This reminded of my mother and grandmother in their old kitchen using a metal/wooden hollow tube to blow air to kindle the fire for cooking.It was very common in villages before the electricity and LPG became available.They never suffered from bronchitis or COPD.
I have seen jewelers in the village using the same equipment to melt gold in the fire.I saw last week in my church the altar boy blowing and rekindling the fire in the Thurible before Holy Mass.
So its an old idea taken and renovated for modern medicine.It is clever.
