PEPE is an affordable, effective and natural lung physiotherapy PEP device manufactured in Australia. The PEPE device is a handheld mucus clearance respiratory device that loosens and eliminates mucus build up or phlegm from your airways. The PEPE uses Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure or PEP Therapy for patients with mucus producing respiratory conditions. The PEPE device is a pipe shaped device with a hard plastic mouthpiece at one end, a protective perforated plastic cover at the other end and a stainless steel ball resting in a circular cone inside the PEPE device.
Over-the-counter medication simply relaxes the muscles and relieves inflammation, it does not clear the build-up of mucus in the airways. The accumulation of mucus in the lungs causes a decline in lung capacity. The PEPE device (Positive Expiratory Pressure Exerciser or vibratory PEP device’s vibratory flutter effectively clears mucus from the airways and strengthens the lungs. The PEPE device can also be used as a lung exerciser that is suitable for athletes as well as physically active people to increase their lung capacity.
This combined actions helps move the mucus up the airways so that it can be coughed out. Daily airway clearance with the PEPE (Positive Expiratory Pressure Exerciser) can help break this cycle of lung infection and lung damage.

WHAT CAN THE PEPE AIRWAY CLEARANCE DEVICE BE USED FOR?
The PEPE (Positive Expiratory Pressure Exerciser) device can be used as a natural and effective PEP therapy treatment for patients suffering from respiratory conditions such as:
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Asthma treatment
- COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
- Most other disorders resulting in retained secretions
- Lung strengthening and expansion
- Chest cold and flu
WHY IS AIRWAY CLEARANCE IMPORTANT?
In many chronic pulmonary conditions there is a build-up of secretions in the airway walls. These secretions, when stuck in the airways can block the airways, making breathing difﬁcult, and provide an ideal environment for bacteria to multiply and thrive. Therefore, airway clearance can be critical to your treatment. Daily airway clearance and lung expansion with the oscillating PEP device can help break this cycle of lung infection and lung damage.
Drug -Free Respiratory Physiotherapy and Training
The PEPE(Positive Expiratory Pressure Exerciser) provides Positive Expiratory Pressure(PEP) therapy for patients with mucus producing respiratory conditions including:
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease(COPD)
Before Use – Consult your Doctor or health professional if you have the below conditions
- Right-sided Heart Failure
- Haemoptysis (coughing up blood)
Results may differ for different people according to the usage of the device and the angle at which the device is being used. PEPE is designed to assist and help in the clearance and conditioning of the lungs as an aid to lung physiotherapy. PEPE is designed to improve lung capacity and aid with secretion clearance from the lungs. Correct use of the PEPE may reduce your medication requirements but at no stage should you reduce your medication without consulting with your Dr.
The design and materials used make the PEPE a very hardy device, capable of being decontaminated in several ways.
