Cystic Fibrosis: Summertime Tips

Don't stray from your routine

During the excitement (or lazy haze) of summer days, you can easily forget about your essential treatments and crucial doctor or physical therapist appointments. If you are vacationing away from home for the summer, it become even easier to get sidetracked. Make sure you try to stick to your normal routine as much as possible. You must continue to take all of your medications at your prescribed times and you will have to plan extra activities or socialization around your breathing treatments or chest exercises. While stopping your fun for a round of CPT may seem boring and bothersome, you know that skipping it could cause you to run into health problems that could bring your trip to a complete and abrupt close.
