Airway clearance is integral to the management of bronchiectasis, yet there is no evidence as to the optimal modality. The aim of this randomized prospective study was to evaluate the acute efficacy, acceptability and tolerability of three airway clearance techniques in non-cystic fibrosis (non-CF) bronchiectasis. Flutter, active cycle of breathing technique (ACBT) and ACBT with postural drainage (ACBT-PD) were evaluated in random order over a week in 36 patients (mean age 62 years, range 33-83… CONTINUE READING
