Savci e colleghi (32) hanno condotto uno studio randomizzato controllato che mette a confronto 20 giorni di trattamento con AD a un regime di ACBT, DP e tecniche manuali attuate da un fisioterapista nei pazienti di BPCO con abbondante produzione di espettorato.
The use of MGAD is further justified by an equivalent sputum expectoration in up to 95% of patients with bronchiectasis when completing ACBT with MGAD compared to GAD with head down tilt (Cecins et al 1999).
This clinical practice is not reflective of the beneficial effects associated with oscillating PEP and the greater patient preference reported with its use compared to ACBT or GAD (Thompson et al 2002, Tsang and Jones 2003, Patterson et al 2005, Patterson et al 2007; Eaton et al 2007).
While the reason for this is unclear, AD has been shown to be of similar benefit as ACBT (Savci et al 2000) and the complex training required for therapists to successfully teach AD may not be widely available in Australia and NZ.
This study demonstrated that the overall approach amongst NZ and Australian clinicians to airway clearance therapy in patients with bronchiectasis and COPD was similar with a preference for ACBT, deep breathing exercises, positioning including GAD and MGAD and walking.
