Respiratory Equipment Access
Respond by: Monday, April 8th, 2019 at 11:59 p.m., ET
The CF Foundation has recognized that significant barriers exist for patients to get nebulizer compressors that are sturdy enough to handle the inhaled medicines that are needed for CF care. It has also been reported that problems exist with getting enough nebulizer cups. A team has been formed that is working to identify and address these challenges. Please consider taking the time to answer the survey below. Your answers will help to show what people living with CF experience with this type of respiratory equipment.
If you are interested in participating in the survey, please click on the link below and complete the survey by Monday, April 8th, 2019 at 11:59 p.m., ET.
