pull out secretions from the upper airway and respiratory bawah.Rangkaian
part in the event normal cough mechanism is inhaled in, closing the glottis,
active contraction of the muscles of expiration, and the opening of the glottis.
Inhalation in increasing lung volume and airway diameter allows air to pass
through a portion of mucus that obstructs or other foreign object passes.

The effectiveness of cough client evaluated by seeing whether there is

liquid sputum, client reports on sputum swallowed or hearing an additional
breath sounds clear when the client auscultated. Clients who have upper

hour while awake and every 2-3 hours during sleep.

Effective cough and breathing in an effective cough technique that

emphasizes maximal inspiration starting from expiration, which aims:
1. Stimulate opening of collateral system
2. Improving the distribution of ventilation

3. Increased lung volume
4. Facilitate pemberihan airways

Ineffective cough led to :

1. The collapse airways
2. Rupture walls of the alveoli
3. Pneumothoraks

Breathing exercises are aimed at:

1. Set the frequency and breathing patterns thus reducing the water trapping
2. Improve the function of the diaphragm
3. Improving the mobility of the thoracic cage

Understand effective cough along with techniques to do so will

provide benefits. Among them, to loosen and relieve respiratory and dealing
with shortness of breath due to respiratory tract mucus meet. Mucus, either in
the form of phlegm (sputum) and secretions in the nose, arising from an

In fact, some studies meSInemukan, no less a person than 4 or 5

people with TB death, mainly due to too late to give treatment and errors in
diagnosis so treatment becomes ineffective.

chronic bronchitis and emphysema or both.
2. Emphysema
An anatomical abnormalities of the lung characterized by a widening of

3. Asthma
Is an inflammatory disorder of the airways characterized by airflow breath

1. Tension pneumotoraks

tension pneumotoraks is the accumulation of air in the pleural space

with lung collaps sekunder. tension pneumothoraks is a medical emergency in

which the air is getting accumulates in the pleural space with each breath.

2. Edema the lungs

pulmonary edema is a condition characterized by symptoms of

difficult breathing due to fluid build up in the pockets of the lungs, this

condition can occur suddenly or develop in the long term.

3. Hemoptisis

hemoptysis or coughing up blood is the expectoration of blood or

bloody mucus. hemoptysis is coughing up blood/sputum mixed with blood

that occurs because there are lesions in the lung or bronchi.

4. Pleural effusion

pleural effusion is a condition characterized by the accumulation of

fluid between the two layers of the pleura . actually pleural fluid produced

serves as a lubricant that helps smooth the movement of the lungs when


a) Provide an explanation of the action that will be performed on the
patient / family
b) To inform consent
c) Adjust the position of the patient as needed

a) Sputum pot
b) lisol 2-3%
c) Towel Pengalas
d) Pillows (If necessary)
e) Tissue
f) Crooked

Huff cough Coughing is a control technique that can be used in
patients suffering from lung diseases such as COPD / COPD,
emphysema or cystic fibrosis.

Can be done with the steps:
