Pulmonary Hygiene

Postural Drainage & Percussion

Percussion : A rhythmic percussion on the thoracic wall to loosen secretions and assist the mucociliary elevator to rid the lungs of retained secretions

Percussion…How Is Done ?

A cyclic tapotement over the thoracic wall makes a popping sound

Both hands participate - the right hand is constantly in motion setting a regular rhythm while the left hand is the dissonant rhythm hand

Hand Position

Research has shown that a 30-45 minute PD & P session can clear the lung fields of secretions. An x-ray of the lungs pre and post treatment demonstrates a dramatically improved lung.
