There is no greater gift than breath
The Giving Breath Campaign raises funds to purchase nebulizers for CF patients in the Middle East and North Africa region. We turn your contribution into a gift of breath for a CF patients in need.
Cystic fibrosis a progressive, genetic disease that affects the body's ability to control the movement of salt and water between cells. This causes mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive system, causing breathing problems and increase the risk of lung infections.
Nebulizers are used to deliver medications to control the build-up of mucus and the progression of other symptoms in people with cystic fibrosis. Nebulizers are used to deliver different types of medication to the lungs of patients with cystic fibrosis such as bronchodilators, corticosteroid and enzyme dornase alfa.
The bronchodilator therapy will not only improves airway obstruction but also increases clearance of viscous secretions in the lungs.
Regular nebulized antibiotic treatment also reduces the frequency of worsening of infection in people with cystic fibrosis.
