The MetaNeb™ System

The MetaNeb system

Three therapies in one

The MetaNeb System is indicated for the mobilisation of secretions, lung expansion therapy, the treatment and prevention of pulmonary atelectasis, and has the ability to provide supplemental oxygen when used with compressed oxygen.

The MetaTherapy Treatment maximises efficiency for patients and clinicians by combining lung expansion, secretion clearance and aerosol delivery into a single integrated therapy by the MetaNeb System.

MetaTherapy treatment

Typical therapy cycle

Aerosol delivered in both Lung Expansion and Secretion Clearance
Hill-Rom 10 minutes Total*
Alternating cycles of CPEP and CHFO combined with aerosol delivery helps maximise therapy effectiveness.

In CPEP (Continuous Positive Expiratory Pressure) mode The MetaNeb System provides medicated aerosol combined with continuous positive pressure to assist in holding open and expanding the airways. In CHFO (Continuous High Frequency Oscillation) mode is a pneumatic form of chest physiotherapy that delivers medicated aerosol while oscillating the airways with continuous pulses of positive pressure.

* Therapy times may differ depending on patient needs and ordered therapies.
