Brief Summary:

This study will investigate the contribution of SIMEOX technology on the effectiveness of bronchial drainage.

This is a crossover study to evaluate the contribution of SIMEOX on the effectiveness of bronchial drainage (verified by the amount of sputum secretions, the rheology of sputum secretions and the subjective sensation of ease of sputum) in patients with cystic fibrosis.

Patients will perform, in randomized order (1) a 30-min session of autogenic drainage, (2) a 30-min session of autogenic drainage with the SIMEOX device. Sputum will be collected during and after the session. The two sessions will be performed with minimum washout time of 24 hours.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Autogenic drainage
Patients will have to perform a 30-min session of autogenic drainage. Sputum will be collected during the session.
Other: Autogenic drainage
Autogenic drainage is an airway clearance technique characterised by breathing control using expiratory airflow to mobilise secretions from smaller to larger airways. The secretions will be collected during the physiotherapy session and during the 24 hours following the session.

Active Comparator: SIMEOX + Autogenic drainage
Patients will have to perform a 30-min session of autogenic drainage with the SIMEOX device. Sputum will be collected during the session.
Device: SIMEOX + Autogenic drainage
SIMEOX is a device generating a succession of gentle depression at the mouth during the expiratory phase associated with autogenic drainage.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Amount of sputum secretion [ Time Frame: 30-min ]
    Total wet weight and dry weight of sputum collected in the 24-h following each intervention will be quantified.

  2. Mucus viscoelasticity [ Time Frame: 30-min ]
    Change in rheological properties of the sputum before and after each intervention will be analyzed using a rheometer.

  3. Subjective feeling of ease to expectorate [ Time Frame: 3-min ]
    A Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) will be used to measure subjective feeling of ease of expectoration during each intervention.
