Positive Pressure Therapy

Positive pressure therapy is a breathing treatment that delivers medication to your lungs and helps you to take deep breaths.

What You Need to Know

  • Allow the IPPB (intermittent positive pressure breathing) machine to fill your lungs.
  • Don't inhale faster than the flow of air from the machine.
  • Make sure no air escapes from your nose. You may need to use a nose clamp.
  • If you feel dizzy during your therapy session, the therapist will turn off the machine until you no longer feel dizzy.
