Background

There is currently insufficient, good quality evidence to support the use of oscillating positive expiratory pressure (OPEP) devices over other airways clearance techniques (ACTs) currently used for the treatment of non- cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis.
All the individual studies involve small numbers of patients and no significant difference in clinical effectiveness was found for the OPEP devices over other ACTs
