In the current study, we designed a cross-over, open label, randomized controlled clinical trial that aim to investigate the superiority of physical exercise coupled with self drainage to a chest physiotherapy in stable cystic fibrosis children. We hypothesized that CF children undergoing physical exercise coupled to self drainage will increase the amount of expectorate secretions compared to conventional CP course, while being more satisfied and without worsening their pulmonary function status.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • weight of sputum that was expectorated [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Physiotherapist collected all sputum excreted from the beginning of the session and during the first hour.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • patient's satisfaction [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    evaluation of FEV1 before and after the session, ii) sessions' quality (i.e. patients' cooperation), iii) patient's satisfaction. Patient's cooperation was quoted by the physiotherapist from 1 (patient refused to participate) to 5 (excellent participation). Patients' satisfaction was scored using a visual analogic scale (VAS) graduated from 0 (not satisfied at all) to 100 (totally satisfied)
