Day 14 of CF info

Today was the Ogden Great Strides walk and it was awesome. I walked with my dear friend Lannea! Emily and Katie came with me and we had a great time. The park that we walked on was absolutely gorgeous! I loved it. 

People with cystic fibrosis are prone to frequent bouts of pneumonia and other lung infections. This is because bacteria become easily trapped in the sticky mucus that blocks the airways. Airway clearance devices and preventive maintenance medications are typically used to avoid infection. Such methods include inhaled antibiotics, bronchodilators, aerosolized medications, and chest physiotherapy.
