Treatment plans help people with cystic fibrosis maintain their health so they can live longer, more fulfilling lives. Although every treatment plan is unique, comprehensive CF treatment plans usually include quarterly visits to a CF care center and the following components: airway clearance techniques; oral, inhaled and nebulized medications; nutrition therapies; and a fitness plan.
Airway clearance techniques (ACTs) loosen thick, sticky mucus so it can be cleared from your lungs by coughing or huffing. Clearing the airways may help decrease lung infections and improve lung function.
