One recommendation is to increase expiratory time as a result of slowing the respiratory rate by using low-level positive expiratory pressure (O'Donnell 1994, Wouters 2006).
The most commonly used airway clearance techniques for both conditions included active cycle of breathing technique, positioning, deep breathing exercises and positive expiratory pressure (PEP) therapy using Bottle PEP.
Other techniques and devices include Autogenic drainage (AD), mechanical percussors for use with traditional CPT, the Flutter[R] valve, and positive expiratory pressure (PEP); intrapulmonary percussive ventilation (IPV) represents a variant form of PEP.
TM] PEP positive expiratory pressure device, and the Threshold(r) IMT and Pflex(r) inspiratory muscle trainers.
 Additionally, VC was found to significantly correlate with all other pulmonary function tests except for positive expiratory pressure (PEP) and maximal negative inspiratory pressure (MIP).
It is the only airway clearance device that simultaneously offers positive expiratory pressure, airway oscillation and intermittent flow acceleration, providing a most beneficial means of airway clearance.
