Even the smallest changes can make a huge difference so remember to take each day one step at a time. With the help of your respiratory therapist, you can develop a treatment plan that fits within your schedule. Keep in mind that you may need to experiment with different airway clearance techniques or medical equipment until you can find an option that best works for you. The most important thing is not to get discouraged. There may be days when you may be lacking in energy or the will to complete your entire everyday routine. This is where your RT comes in. He or she can help you to overcome any obstacles and to stay focused and committed to your personal goals.
