Drenaje postural

Existen de 6 a 12 posiciones que una persona con enfermedad pulmonar puede adoptar para drenar el moco desde ciertas partes de los pulmones. Otra persona puede golpear ligeramente en ciertas áreas para ayudar a aflojar el moco y permitir que éste sea expulsado. Otras formas de aliviar la congestión pulmonar por fibrosis quística o bronquiectasia son los aerosoles inhalados y los dispositivos de percusión.Drenaje postural
