This article describes the impact of a device delivering continuous high-frequency oscillation (CHFO) therapy and aerosol therapy and continuous positive expiratory pressure (CPEP) in mechanically ventilated patients by evaluating quality improvement records from 2009-2010 and during the first 5 months of 2011. The incorporation of this device improved rates of weaning from mechanical ventilation from 82% to 88%. In the first 5 months of 2011, 100% of patients were successfully weaned from mechanical ventilation. Furthermore, the need for therapeutic bronchoscopy decreased from 2009-2011.
