How to Use AirPhysio to Aid with Mycoplasma Pneumonia Recovery

, by Aussie Pharma Direct, 5 min reading time

Mycoplasma pneumonia, often referred to as "walking pneumonia," distinguishes itself as a respiratory infection caused by the bacteria Mycoplasma pneumoniae. Unlike traditional pneumonia, Mycoplasma pneumonia typically manifests with milder symptoms, making it challenging to identify without proper medical attention.

While Mycoplasma pneumonia may not always necessitate hospitalisation, a comprehensive recovery plan is essential. This includes a combination of rest, hydration, prescribed medications, and respiratory therapies to address the unique challenges posed by this infection. 

But we are going to focus on the respiratory therapy this time around, and we will explore various strategies, including the use of AirPhysio, to enhance the recovery process.

The role of AirPhysio in recovery

AirPhysio is a handheld device designed to assist in airway clearance and lung expansion, promoting improved respiratory function.

How AirPhysio works:

AirPhysio operates on a simple mechanism. Through the use of oscillating positive expiratory pressure (OPEP) technology, the device helps mobilise mucus and trapped air from the lungs. This process assists in clearing the airways, reducing congestion, and enhancing overall lung capacity. Particularly beneficial for individuals with compromised respiratory conditions like cold, flu, advanced age, and even Mycoplasma pneumonia, AirPhysio provides a non-invasive and drug-free approach to respiratory care.

How to use AirPhysio in the recovery process

This respiratory device can seamlessly complement your existing treatment plan, working alongside prescribed medications, so you don’t need to worry about any contraindications or side effects. 

Before incorporating AirPhysio into your regimen, it is advisable to consult with your doctor if you are still unsure, especially if you already have pre-existing medical condition. Your doctor can provide personalised guidance and assess the compatibility of AirPhysio with your current condition and treatment plan.

Here’s a simple guide to incorporating AirPhysio in your recovery process: 

1. Preparation:

  • Ensure AirPhysio is clean before using.
  • Choose a comfortable and quiet space for either sitting or standing. 

2. Deep breathing warm-up:

  • Initiate with a few deep breaths to relax respiratory muscles.
  • Inhale deeply through your nose, letting your lungs fill with air.
  • Exhale slowly and completely through your mouth.
3. AirPhysio usage:
  • Hold AirPhysio firmly and place the mouthpiece in your mouth.
  • Inhale deeply through the device, filling your lungs and holding your breath for 2-3 seconds.
  • Exhale through the device at a reasonably fast and consistent pace for 3-5 seconds until you empty your lungs. Ensure to not blow too hard as you don’t want to tire your lung muscles. 

 4. Repeat the process:

  • Continue the inhalation and exhalation cycle for about 10-15 breaths.
  • Maintain a steady rhythm, allowing AirPhysio to assist in mobilising mucus and promoting airway clearance.

Frequency and duration

  • Adjust the frequency based on your needs. It is recommended to use the breathing device twice a day, or as recommended by your doctor. 
  • Incorporate AirPhysio into your daily routine, especially during periods of increased mucus production or respiratory discomfort.

Combining AirPhysio with breathing exercises

Pair AirPhysio usage with gentle breathing exercises to further enhance lung expansion. Practise diaphragmatic breathing by focusing on deep inhalation and full exhalation. 

Post-usage recommendations

  • Stay hydrated to facilitate the loosening and removal of mucus.
  • Rest for a few minutes post-AirPhysio usage to allow your respiratory system to adjust.

Other ways to facilitate recovery from Mycoplasma pneumonia

In addition to incorporating the use of AirPhysio into your day-to-day routine, there are several other crucial considerations for enhancing recovery and overall well-being:

Prescribed medications and medical advice:

  • Adhere to the prescribed medications provided by your healthcare professional. Follow medical advice diligently, attending follow-up appointments as scheduled.

Balanced diet for immune support:

  • Consume a nutrient-rich diet to support your immune system. Include foods rich in vitamins and minerals, such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains.


Remember, the use of AirPhysio should be integrated into your recovery plan with consideration and, if uncertain, consultation with your doctor is recommended. Its safety, coupled with its effectiveness, adds a layer of convenience to your pursuit of restored respiratory health when recovering from Mycoplasma pneumonia.
