Cystic Fibrosis - Coggle Diagram
Psychosocial Factors 'Red Hat'
Balancing work/medical/health concerns
"abnormal" medical diagnosis perception
What is CF?
Recessive genetic disorder
Chloride ion disruption - salt build up
Dry, viscous secretions
Pancreatic and other organ insufficiency are common
Diagnosed at birth with heel prick
Risks/Difficulties with Treatment - 'Black Hat'
Regular medical intervention
Aiway clearance program for life
Adherence to medication and physiotherapy
High risk of infection
Emerging Evidence 'Yellow Hat'
HFCWO (Vest) Machine Percs
Structured exercise (includes video games)!
E-flow (inhalation device)!
Management 'Blue Hat'
Medication (antibiotics, hypertonic saline, salbutamol, pulmazyme)
Review/Monitoring - Imaging
Percussion and Vibes (positional)
PEP (completing 8-10 sets combined with FET)
Exercise! Structured is best! Remember to replace salts!
Benefits to exercise with oxygen if needed
Structured exercise 3x week
Stretching/Strengthening 3x week
Pari Plus (hypertonic saline 3%-6%)
Emerging Areas of Research
