PURPOSE: In recent years, in order to reduce Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) symptoms, new treatment methods have been developed. One of these is the positive expiration pressure (PEP). This can improve the muco.ciliary clearance and prevent airways collapse. Temporary-PEP (T-PEP) uses pressure only in the first part of expiration phase. Oscillatory-PEP (O-PEP) combines the benefits of PEP therapy with airway vibrations. Both therapies apply a low expiratory pressure of 1 H2O creating oscillations that promote the secretions detachment. The study aims to evaluate the efficacy of Lung Flute which use O-PEP compared to T-PEP
