“Cough Buddy™” is a specially designed post-operative pillow with a firm, yet flexible back to serve as a splint for the patient’s incision.

Our pillow was created to help patients cough and deep breathe after open heart, thoracic, abdominal, or bariatric surgery. After surgical procedures, recovering patients must perform both of these procedures to avoid respiratory complications, such as pneumonia. Cough Buddy™ provides the support a patient needs and minimizes the pain of therapy.

“Cough Buddy™” has proven to be a great comfort if a patient suffers from post-operative depression. He becomes a very special gift and a wonderful tool to help them through their surgery.

Gift Message

I without a doubt recommend “Cough Buddy” as a post-operative pillow after surgery. I had 3 procedures on my lung; a Mediastinoscopy, VATS, as well as a Thoractomy.

After the surgery I was given a “Cough Buddy” Moose post-op pillow that was by my side through the entire healing process. It was very difficult to cough and breathe with my incisions, and I cannot imagine my recovery without this pillow.

Thank you Teddy-Tech for developing this amazing pillow!
