W20: PT & RT: Airway Clearance Prescriptions in Difficult Clinical Situations

Oct 10, 2014 2:00pm ‐ Oct 10, 2014 3:45pm

Standard: $49.99


This workshop will focus on clinical scenarios and novel methods of delivery and enhancement of airway clearance and invite discussion from a mixed audience of physical and respiratory therapists, primary providers and researchers. Invited speakers will define difficult situations, especially in the adult CF patient, as well as pulmonary and extra-pulmonary physical barriers to effective airway clearance. The second portion of the workshop will explore research into novel methods of approaching the current standard of care of airway clearance and means to improve and augment current standard practice.

Learning Objectives:
  • Define difficult CF patient populations that affect the delivery & performance of airway clearance, with special attention to the adult or late onset-CF patient
  • Identify physical and psychosocial limitations to effective airway clearance
  • Evaluate novel methods and approaches to augment airway clearance beyond standard practice.
