The Vest Airway Clearance System
Previously, CF patients were mostly cared for by their parents. Now as they are starting to live much longer, they may no longer be able to rely on their parents for care and help with daily chores such as airway clearance. A major advancement in the treatment of CF has been the introduction of airway clearance devices such as the Hill-Rom The Vest® Airway Clearance System. The key to surviving appears to be a consistent, daily regiment that involves exercise, a healthy diet, good hygiene and airway clearance therapy.
