Huff Guidelines

  • Use huff tube if available (or mouthpiece)
  • Hollow sound
  • No wheeze or force, no voice or shouty sound
  • Open throat, like a sigh
  • Use tummy muscles
  • Try and stop coughing until huffs are done.
  • Huffs can be introduced from a young age by the CF team using huff tubes and tissue butterflies or curtains.
