Acapella is an oscillating PEP device, creating vibrations in the airway.
A slightly bigger breath in with a breath hold should be used.
Each individual will have their own treatment plan provided by the CF physio, each set of breaths will range from 10-20 breaths, or may be timed.
Encourage good posture whilst doing treatment, or combine with some gentle activity to keep the session fun.
Encourage huffs during the session.
Acapella must be cleaned after each use.
Acapella should be stopped immediately if a client complains of chest pain or coughs up any blood. The CF team should be contacted and CFWA should be informed.
