Intrapulmonary percussive ventilation (IPV) is frequently used in clinical practice to enhance sputum evacuation and lung recruitment. However, the evidence in different respiratory pathologies, especially in children, is still lacking. This systematic review aims to enlist the effectiveness of IPV as an airway clearance technique in pediatric patients.

The influence of Intrapulmonary percussive ventilation on gastroesophageal reflux in infants under the age of 1 year
Intrapulmonary percussive ventilation (IPV) is an airway clearance technique used at any age to facilitate the removal of secretions from the respiratory tract. The effect of IPV on gastroesophagealExpand
A systematic review on the effects of high frequency chest wall compression and intrapulmonary percussive ventilation in patients with neuromuscular disease
The evidence for high frequency wall compression and intrapulmonary percussive ventilation is still insufficient to draw final conclusions and should be interpreted with caution as the results have a very low certainty of evidence and reported outcomes have a high risk of bias. Expand
Percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty with CO2 in a child
The first case of sustained use of IPV as long-term successful treatment in a PCD patient is presented, and intrapulmonary percussive ventilation may become the standard treatment in PCD patients as it may help avoid the need for lung transplantation. Expand

Influence of intrapulmonary percussive ventilation in upright position on gastro‐oesophageal reflux in infants
To determine the influence of physiotherapy using intrapulmonary percussive ventilation on gastro‐oesophageal reflux (GOR) in infants <1 year, physiotherapists are used to treat reflux disease in children under the age of one. Expand
Persistent pulmonary consolidation treated with intrapulmonary percussive ventilation: A preliminary report
It is concluded that while IPV requires further clinical evaluation, it appears to be a safe and effective therapy for selected patients, however, close observation is essential during and after IPV treatments, especially in patients who have difficulty mobilizing or expectorating sputum. Expand

Findings from this review indicate that CPT in neonates did not significantly improve oxygenation or secretion removal in the first 24 hours of life in premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome, and prevented post-extubation atelectasis. Expand
Comparison of intrapulmonary percussive ventilation and chest physiotherapy. A pilot study in patients with cystic fibrosis.
