When Should Airway Clearance start?

Airway clearance is started at diagnosis.

Why start so early?

  • Infection and inflammation can be present in the lungs even though there are no signs or symptoms.
  • It is important to set up a good routine so young children get used to doing airway clearance.
  • Parents need to practice techniques to enable them to become airway clearance experts.
