I think it would. Again for opening the lower airways, albeit it is short-lived, but also for deep breathing and stimulating cough. As alluded to in the study there are longer acting bronchodilators available. They are typically used in patient who have COPD.

Chest percussion is also another modality that could be deployed. You can buy percussion cups which are struck against the chest to break up mucus. There are more "fancy" options used for chronic conditions and in the hospital setting known as a percussion vests which literally shakes the chest wall.

Especially in individuals that are laying in bed or less mobile the risk for secondary bacteria pneumonia is very high.
