Normally, every treatment session can last between 20 to 40 minutes. CPT is best done before meals or one-and-a-half to two hours after eating, to diminish the possibility of vomiting.. Early morning and sleep times are generally prescribed. The length of CPT and the times each day it is done may should be expanded if the individual is more congested or becoming ill. Your CF specialist or respiratory therapist can suggest what positions, how frequently and to what extent CPT ought to be finished.

Both the individual with CF and relatives ought to be open before CPT. Before beginning, the individual should expel tight apparel, gems, catches and zippers around the neck, chest and midsection. Light, delicate apparel, for example, a Shirt, might be worn. Try not to do CPT on uncovered skin.
