Pulmonary rehabilitation of patients with CF includes individual-dependent techniques such as postural drainage, percussion and vibration; controlled breathing exercises such as autogenic drainage and active cycle of breathing technique; use of airway clearance devices such as the positive expiratory pressure device and devices that provide airway oscillation such as high frequency chest wall oscillation device.
Treatment/management practices reviewed include chest physiotherapy (percussion, postural drainage, and vibration), manually assisted cough, forced expiratory technique (huffing), autogenic drainage, respiratory muscle training, positive expiratory pressure, devices designed to oscillate gas in the airway and mechanical cough assistive devices.
