Children and families with cystic fibrosis (CF) must carefully manage daily care at home to stay as healthy as possible. In this video, 5-month-old Johnny's mom shows how to do give enzymes to a baby and how to do chest PT on a baby — and talks about some of her hopes and dreams for Johnny!
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, doing acapella treatment, swallowing pills, and checking blood sugar levels.
Be sure to always consult with your cystic fibrosis care team for individualized instructions on managing your child’s CF.
