Cystic Fibrosis My Way: Using an Inhaler with Jacob

Children and families with cystic fibrosis (CF) must carefully manage daily care at home to stay as healthy as possible. In this video, Jacob shows how to use an inhaler (puffer) with a spacer — and talks about some of his hopes and dreams!

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, 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.
