Why is PEP Used?
- PEP devices are very effective at moving mucus from the smaller airways into the larger airways so it can be cleared.
- PEP allows people with CF to be more independent with their airway clearance routine.
- PEP is useful for people with CF who have floppy airways as it can help splint their airways open to make it easier to move mucus.
- Community Support Workers can help with motivation and supervision to promote good technique, particularly with children.
