IPPB therapy for cystic fibrosis. Physiotherapist using an intermittent positive pressure breathing (IPPB) machine to help clear phlegm from the lungs of a patient with cystic fibrosis (CF). CF is a hereditary disease affecting the lungs, sweat glands and digestive system. Both the lungs and pancreas produce abnormally thick mucus. The mucus in the lungs encourages bacterial growth, leading to severe respiratory infections. The mucus in the pancreas blocks the release of digestive enzymes, resulting in malabsorption.
