Randomized Controlled Eight-Week Study of the Safety and Efficacy of the Lung Flute
A Proof of Principal Randomized Controlled Eight-Week Study of the Safety and Efficacy of the Lung Flute in Adults With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. A FDA 510(k) Equivalency Study

This is an eight-week, randomized, controlled, two arm parallel study. The study consists of, a screening visit, two weeks of intervention-free run-in randomization, clinic visits week 0, 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks during the intervention period to collect 24 hour sputum and to confirm techniques of device use and entries into daily diaries. Twenty-four (24) hour sputum samples will be collected and weighed at each clinic visit. In addition to clinic visits, subjects will be expected to make daily diary entries of COPD symptoms. Clinical evaluation will include adverse event surveillance, and St. Georges Respiratory questionnaire.
