PEP is a technique that applies resistance to the breath out, causing a build-up of air in the lungs and airways which gets air in behind the mucus and helps to move mucus.
There are many different types of PEP and each PEP routine will look slightly different.
in older children and adults most routines include the following: a slightly larger than normal breath in and a long, active breath out.
Ventolin and mucolytics usually come before PEP, inhaled antibiotics after PEP.
PEP devices should be cleaned after each session.
