    Hi, willingly, ,,,I have had this devise fir 4 weeks,I have been struggling to get the mucus off my chest sometimes causing a chocking feeling,,,and getting soooo out of breath ,as I am under the care of the COPD PULMARY REHAB TEAM ,they suggested the FLUTTER DEVISE ,,,,it's simple, it's like a pipe with a ball rain in the cup part,I'm not sure if your husband is aware of the Hough technic as shown by

    copd nurse but it's basically that but it makes it so much easier to clear the mucus and get it from deep down, I was lucky enough to get mine on prescription but the same one is on Amazon for about £45 ,,,,if your husband hasn't been refered to pulmary rehab,,,then may I suggest he asks his consultant or GP to so as soon as possible,they a are brilliant team of specialist physio / nurse in the care of COPD patients, I'm not exagerating when I say ,,,,they have been my nurse my physio and my friends,,,,and I feel I wouldn't be here without their help guidance support and advise,and they are easier to get to speak to than your GP,

    I wish your hubby a speedy recovery ,take care if there's anything else I can help you with ,,,,please feel free to contact me, best wishes, Georgina

      Georgina, thank you so much for your reply, sounds very interesting. The mucous is a real problem for him. He does have TB plus his COPD. He has caught an infection on top of the TB. He was treated initially with IV antibiotics and Steroids, although he has been ion a week today, there is some improvement but not as much as we had hoped for. Tomorrow he will start Prednisolne orally. His breathing remains very difficult with tightenings in his chest. I shall look into your device and if you have any more info I would be extremely gratefull., many thanks and hope you keep well. Sue. X

    Hi Susan ,there's no medication involved with the Flutter devise,it's like a pipe as I say,the idea is ,,,,,place the pipe in mouth ,,,,in posisition one ,,,,and breathe in through the nose and hold for 3 seconds,,,,then breathe slowly out from the mouth ,,,,repeat several times ,,,, then lower the pipe to position 2 ,,,,and repeat stage one

    ,,,,,,then lower pipe again to posisition three  ( gets harder now ) ,,,,,and again breathe in through the nose ,,,,hold for 3 seconds,,,,,and slowly  out from the mouth ,each time exhale lungs as far  as possible ,,this is when I start coughing and all the mucus is loose and easy to cough up,,, ( well it' seems to  be sage three for me ) .

    regarding my previous comments it's a Ballbaring that's in the pipe,,,no medication added to it,,,please ask for a referral to the copd rehab team  ,,,,I'm sure your husband will benefit from them , have a look on Amazon for  the pipe there's lots of reviews ,,,also look on YOU TUBE for guidance on how to use ,,,,,good luck ,

      Many thanks again for you reply and help. He has a Resp nurse who I could speak to concerning this product. I think it's always better to speak

       with some one like you who have tried a product and will be honest about it. I did check it out on Amazon and the reviews were brilliant. Obviously if I can get it on prescription I will but it's good to know that I can buy one if I have to. Many thanks again and any more interesting info would be very welcome. sue x
