FIRSTLY, MECHANICAL VIBRATORS ON CHEST IS LIKE RBIN SAID A NO NO FOR FIRST 2-3 WEEKS, AND AFTER THAT I DONT THINK THERE IS ANY REQUIREMENT FOR IT...
SECONDLY, IF SIDELYING CAN BE GIVEN.......DEPENDS ON THE SURGEON,...I THINK FOR THE FIRST DAY....ITS BETTER NOT TO HAVE PATIENT GO ONTO SIDELYING BUT AFFTER A FEW DAYS THE PATIENT WILL AS IT IS START TO TURN ON SIDES EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY OR MAYNOT ADVISE IT.......

SOME TO READ ON......

the reason for asking this was that i am giving mechanical vibrator (only to patient with lot of secretions rest only percussions) after sternotomy postop day2 onwards. not exactly on incision but yes on anterior chest. the patient was on ventilator so only partial sidelying could be done and no sitting. i was told the bony sutures are really strong.

hello everyone, we also used to give mechanical vibrator to almost all Post op Cardiac sugery patients but depending on the condition of the patient ...and no complcation was found yet .. is there any evidence which says "no mechanical vibrator till 2-3 weeks" ? I am keen to know about it .. Thanks
