Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation (IPV)

Intrapulmonary percussive ventilation (IPV) is a form of chest physical therapy administered to the airways by a pneumatic device. Using a breathing circuit called a Phasitron, mini bursts of gas are delivered into the lungs at rates between 100 – 300 breaths per minute (bpm). Self-administered: No, in-hospital use only
