Lucky for you to get fired! My Pulmo is in the Pulmonary Specialty Department at U of IA Hospitals and Clinics. Not as good as Mayo or NJH but they do specialize in things like difficult pulmonary infections, Bronchiectasis, Cystic Fibrosis. Even so, I have seen there is a lot they still do not know about NCFB. Many of the recommendations have been things that would work for Cystic Fibrosis but not necessarily for someone like me. But at least they are aware of the great need for airway clearance techniques including 7% saline. My Pulmo said he does not have any other patients that have the chronic form of Pseudomonas and yet do not have Cystic Fibrosis. I hope my feedback and experience will help with any future people with NCFB as it is becoming more and more common.
What is NCFB? I have real sticky mucus at times, and do use 7% saline. Other times just the normal sodium chloride seems to work well.
