An Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure (OPEP) device is a handheld respiratory therapy device used to assist in clearing mucus and improving lung function in individuals with respiratory conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, asthma, and bronchiectasis.

The OPEP device typically consists of a mouthpiece or mask connected to a device that creates resistance and generates oscillations or vibrations during exhalation. These oscillations help to loosen and mobilize mucus in the airways, making it easier to cough up and clear from the lungs.

By using an OPEP device as part of respiratory therapy, individuals can enhance airway clearance, improve lung ventilation, and potentially reduce the risk of respiratory complications. It is often used in conjunction with other treatments prescribed by healthcare professionals.
