Cystic Fibrosis My Way: Acapella Treatment with Emily

Children and families with cystic fibrosis (CF) must carefully manage daily care at home to stay as healthy as possible. In this video, Emily shows how to do acapella treatments — and talks about some of her hopes and dreams, including maybe becoming a doctor someday!

This is one in a series of videos featuring patients from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Cystic Fibrosis Center. Other topics in the series include: using a therapy vest, huff coughing, using a puffer, taking enzymes, swallowing pills, checking blood sugar levels, and doing chest PT (physical therapy).

Be sure to always consult with your cystic fibrosis care team for individualized instructions on managing your child’s CF.
