BACKGROUND The periodic administration of positive airway pressure combined with directed cough could aid mucus clearance in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and severe airway obstruction. OBJECTIVE To compare the short-term effect of positive expiratory pressure (PEP) physiotherapy via mask (mask PEP), continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), and noninvasive positive-pressure ventilation (NPPV) physiotherapies on amount of sputum collected. METHODS Directed cough was standardized for… CONTINUE READING
