Abstract

The high frequency chest compression (HFCC) device was designed to aid in mucous clearance for cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. It consists of a large variable volume variable frequency air pulse delivery system and a non-stretchable inflatable vest (BDV) worn by the patient. A software package to tune this device has been implemented in 'C'. The new software has automated the tuning process by its capacity to automatically control the frequency of the alternating frequency device (pump). Calibration of frequency control has been automated with a view of keeping the tuning routine independent of the pump controller in use, given that the controller's operating characteristic was linear.
