Cystic Fibrosis My Way: Therapy Vest and Huff Cough with John

Children and families with cystic fibrosis (CF) must carefully manage daily care at home to stay as healthy as possible. In this video, John shows how to use a therapy vest, how to do your huff coughs, and how to use an inhaler (puffer). He also talks about his dreams of being a professional basketball player!

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: taking enzymes, swallowing pills, checking blood sugar levels, doing acapella treatment, 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.
