Vest Treatments

Has anyone here have or currently do vest treatments? My doctor ordered one for me so I can do them at home and I was just curious if it has made a significant difference for anyone. I have done them in the office and it does break up some of the gunk in my chest which helps a little. Just curious abotu your experiences.

Re: Vest Treatments

My son does them 3 times a day due to cystic fibrosis, to keep the lungs healthy and to get stuff moving. He does duoneb by nebulizer to open up the airways, then vests. And once a day he nebulizes dnase to thin the secretions. Other people I know use hypertonic saline or mucomyst.
