Why is PEP used?

PEP devices are very effective at moving mucus from the smaller airways into the larger airways so it can be cleared.

PEP allows people with CF to be more independent with their airway clearance routine.

PEP is useful for people with CF who have floppy airways as it can help splint their airways open to make it easier to move mucus.

Community Support Workers can help with motivation and supervision to encourage good technique, particularly with children.
