Validation of an Instrument Measuring Patient Satisfaction With Chest Physiotherapy Techniques in Cystic Fibrosis

Perceived efficacy, convenience, and comfort scores were determined from 129 surveys sent to patients with CF who used PDPV, Flutter, or HFCWO techniques. Mean satisfaction scores revealed significant improvements in perceived efficacy with HFCWO (14 patients) compared to PDPV (79 patients) (P=0.045). Patient compliance was shown to correlate with satisfaction with prescribed therapies.
