    Hi don't know about where you live but you can get mucodyne tablets in the UK which helps with getting rid of phlegm.  I don't know of any machines that do it though there must be some.  x

    Mucodyne is helpful, but there is also a device you can get to help bring up stuuborn thick mucus, It is called a flutter device.

    You use this as part of the active breathing exercise and it does work well.

    A bit pricy at £45.00 but a good investment.

    As well as the "Lung Flute"

    I understand that nebulized inhaled glutathione, a powerful antioxidan usually stops COPD progression when glutathione is dispersed in a fine mist and inhaled.

    P.S Big Pharma will not like this as glutathione is natural and so not patentable (highly profitable)
