Tandem Therapy

Tandem Therapy is a simple, cost effective solution for simultaneous lung expansion and airway clearance combining the advantages of both the AEROBIKA® and VersaPAP® devices.

The AEROBIKA® device provides Oscillatory Positive Expiratory Pressure or OPEP. This helps stent open the airways allowing the oscillations to assist with the removal of secretions. The VersaPAP® device uses pressurized air to help maintain positive airway pressure throughout the breathing cycle. This allows for a larger deeper inhaled breath as well as positive pressure on exhalation to keep the airways open.

How It Works

On inhalation, the VersaPAP® device helps the user take a deeper breath in.  This in turn allows for an extended exhalation through the AEROBIKA® OPEP device, maximizing the benefit of oscillations. 

Tandem Therapy is the first FDA cleared OPEP and PAP device combination.

It is a quiet, gentle option that optimizes lung expansion and airway clearance.

How To Use

Tandem Therapy

  1. Remove the mouthpiece from the AEROBIKA® OPEP device and replace with the front of the VersaPAP® device (the part with the manometer gauge).
  2. Insert the backpiece of the VersaPAP® device onto the back of the AEROBIKA® OPEP device.
  3. Securely connect the supplied tubing to the backpiece air supply outlet and the other end to the flow meter.
  4. Set the flow meter as instructed and have the user inhale deeply, then exhale for 3 – 4 times longer than on inhalation. Use the manometer gauge to adjust the flow or resistance to maintain a pressure between 15 – 20 cm H2O.

These are abbreviated instructions for use, please remember to read the complete instructions that are packaged with the VersaPAP® device.
