• 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
