Using a huff tube if available (or mouthpiece) is helpful.
Encourage an open throat, like an active sigh.
Using the tummy muscles on the breath out will help make it an active effort.
Avoid coughing until huffs have moved the mucus to the upper airways.
Huffs can be introduced from a young age by the CF team using huff tubes and tissue butterflies or curtains.
