Children and families with cystic fibrosis (CF) must carefully manage daily care at home to stay as healthy as possible. In this series of six videos, patients from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Cystic Fibrosis Center demonstrate how to properly perform some common CF therapies at home – while also sharing some of their hopes and dreams!
Topics in the series include: using a therapy vest, huff coughing, using a puffer, doing acapella treatment, 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.
