Inhalation therapy is the method of converting a liquid or dry powder into an aerosol or mist, so it deposits directly into the airways.
Inhalation therapy and airway clearance are often done at the same time or close together as they both make mucus easier to clear.
Inhalation therapy can be delivered by a number of different devices.
The inhalation therapy technique will also impact how effectively the medication is delivered to the airways
Cleaning and maintenance of equipment is an important part of the inhalation therapy
If a child is having more difficulty breathing after inhalation therapy please let CFWA know this information so the CF care team can be informed
