ABSTRACTIntroduction: in the children with serious or deep in cerebral paralysis are frequent the breathing infections. The techniques of clearing mucociliarfavor the elimination of secretions and they avoid breathing complications in these children.
Method: we was carried out a quasi-experimental study with the objective of evaluating the effects ofoscillations of high frequency in the wall of the thorax associated to in-exuflación mechanics in patient with cerebral paralysis with chronic breathing symptoms. They were evaluated as variables the symptomsand signs, the heart frequency, breathing frequency, oxygen saturation and pressure of CO2 at the end of the expiration. The security and tolerance of the treatment were also evaluated.
Results: they were incorporate 20 patients. A clinical improvement was obtained in 95 % of the patients, the oxihemoglobina saturation showed higher concentrations when concluding the treatment. Satisfactory answer was achieved in 95 %. Adverse effects, neither complications product of the therapy were not reported.
Conclusions: the oscillation of high frequency of the thoracic wall and in-exuflación mechanics is beneficial as technical of clearance of the airway in patient with serious or deep cerebral paralysis.
