The Vest® Airway Clearance System, Model 104

The Hill-Rom Vest Airway Clearance System Model 104 was developed by ABI which was acquired in 2002 by Hill-Rom. Both the Model 104 and 105 use the same basic mechanism to generate air pulses based on the original patent. An internal diaphragm motor generates air pulses which are dampened by a set of rubber baffles. An air blower maintains positive pressure and makes up for air loss from the vest garment.

The model 104 was a major advancement from the model 103 which was a big, bulky unit that worked well as long as it was stationary. The unit weighed about 45 lbs and was difficult to ship, nonetheless carry with you if you had to travel. They are still in use in some clinical care settings today.

Users can program 3 variables: oscillation frequency (5-20Hz), force (1-10) and duration of treatment (in minutes). The 104 interface speaks one language, English. The 104 air pulse unit really does not like run without a vest attached to it. To prevent over speeding, there is a pressure sensor. If this sensor indicates that there is insufficient pressure, it will stop the motor and indicate an error. This can be quite frustrating and may require uploading new software.

The 104 is an excellent value and there are units with over 1500 + working hours in the field.
