Effects of Expiratory Muscle Training on Cough Efficacy in Children and Adolescents With Cystic Fibrosis

Publication date: Mar 13, 2019

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive genetic disease characterized by recurrent airway infections, affecting many systems including lung, pancreas and sweat glands. Cough is an important defense mechanism for clearing the secretions that increase in respiratory diseases. There have been studies investigating the effect of expiratory muscle training on disease groups such as COPD, multiple sclerosis, parkinson’s disease, and the elderly and healthy individuals. Studies that evaluating effects of expiratory muscle training in cystic fibrosis are limited in the literature. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of cough strength in children and adolescents with CF and the effect of expiratory muscle training program on cough strength, exercise capacity, respiratory muscle strength and quality of life.
