The conventional method of Chest physiotherapy (CPT) is chest percussion which is often accompanied by postural drainage. Chest percussion is the manual pounding or clapping to loosen secretions. This is accomplished by the creation of deliberate vibrations by calculated "cupping" with the hands over the chest, back, and areas under the arms which effectively breaks up the thick secretions commonly associated with respiratory infections. This manual cupping will deliver a maximal vibration that will penetrate the chest cavity, bronchial tree, and into the depths of the lungs where the mechanical stimulation will loosen thick mucous secretions. This is a vital part of the treatment regimen for people with Cystic Fibrosis (CF).
