Airway Clearance

What is Airway Clearance?! 

Airway clearance helps loosen the sticky mucus from the lungs so it can be huffed or coughed out. Airway clearance helps Cfers stay healthy and breathe easier. Clearing the airways also reduces lung infections and improves lung function, It is typically done after inhaled medications. There are many different forms of airway clearance and they work differently for everyone. 

I always do PepMask seen in the photo, combined with"Somergenics" which is my own version of a combo between autogenic drainage and active cycle. Which is basically a breathing technique with different levels of breathing that moves the mucus up, so I can huff it out. As the CFer gets older they will be able to tell what works for them and what doesn't. 
Breathe out Love! Xo ❤
