Airway Clearance Treatment Plans

The physio from the CF team will work with each individual to develop a treatment plan that works for them.

The amount of time each session takes will vary with each person depending on their age, the type of technique, their behaviour and motivation and how unwell they are.

Please do not offer advice or modify airway clearance. If there are any issues, encourage your client to discuss with the CF team.

If your client experiences increased shortness of breath, a new occurrence of chest pain, or coughs up any blood (haemoptysis) during the treatment session they should stop the session and you should contact CFWA, or the care team for further advice.
