nebulizer therapy

Nebulizer therapy is a mainstay of CF treatment.

Cystic fibrosis and the lead to thick mucus secretions that characterize the disease dramatically affect multiple organ systems, principally the gastrointestinal tract and lungs, but also the bladder, liver, muscles and bones, and reproductive systems. How do we fight such a severe, multi-system disease? With a multi-pronged, individualized treatment regimen, including antibiotics to battle chronic infections, pancreatic enzymes to aid digestion, and chest therapy to loosen secretions and even lung transplantation when necessary. All of these are designed to improve your quality of life and enhance  longevity.
