The article provides the scientific rationale for the use of high-frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO) in the treatment of bronchial asthma in children. Proved the possibility of the use of HFCWO in children with bronchial asthma, defined its therapeutic efficacy. Established tolerability of procedures and absence of adverse reactions. Found a beneficial effect on clinical symptoms, mucociliary clearance, which was characterized by increased sputum discharge, rapid regression and disappearance of cough, wheezing, normalization auscultation picture at an earlier date than in the control group. Combined therapy with the inclusion of high frequency chest wall oscillation improves lung function, as evidenced by the curve «flow-volume» parameters, especially when initially discounted rates. Vibro-compressive effect improves chest excursion and lung drainage function in children with bronchial asthma.
