Study Description
Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of two airway clearance techniques; Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation and Assisted Autogenic Drainage in hospitalized infants under the age of 2 with acute viral bronchiolitis.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Bronchiolitis Other: inhalation 4ml hypertonic saline 3% 3x/day Device: Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation Procedure: Assisted Autogenic Drainage

Study Design

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 103 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: The Effectiveness of Assisted Autogenic Drainage (AAD) and Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation (IPV) to Treat Hospitalized Infants (<2years) With Acute Viral Bronchiolitis: a Randomised Clinical Trial.
Study Start Date : December 2012
Primary Completion Date : January 2015
Study Completion Date : January 2015
Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation
20 min of IPV administered to the patient inhalation 4ml hypertonic saline 3% 3x/day
Other: inhalation 4ml hypertonic saline 3% 3x/day Device: Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation
Active Comparator: Assisted Autogenic Drainage
20 min of AAD administered to the patient inhalation 4ml hypertonic saline 3% 3x/day
Other: inhalation 4ml hypertonic saline 3% 3x/day Procedure: Assisted Autogenic Drainage
No Intervention: control
20 min of bouncing administered tot the patient inhalation 4ml hypertonic saline 3% 3x/day


Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Length of Hospital Stay [ Time Frame: 6 days ]
    Previously publised data ( Luo et al. 2011) showed that the average hospital stay for infants with acute viral bronchiolitis, inhaling 4 ml NaCl3%, three times /day is 6 days ( SD 1,2)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Wang Score [ Time Frame: before treatment, immediately after treatment and 1h after treatment ]
  2. Heartrate [ Time Frame: before, after and 1h after intervention ]
  3. Oxygen Saturation (SaO2) [ Time Frame: before, after and 1h after treatment ]
    oxygen saturation (SaO2) measured by pulse -oximetry
