  • Would You Rather – Favorite Way to Cough Edition

    Hey all. Living with SMA means we may need some assistance with coughing, especially when we’re sick. My coworkers (who have SMA) and I were talking about this the other day and what our respiratory regimen looks like when we’re dealing with a cold. Personally, I like to keep it old school and do chest PT in the Trendelenburg position as opposed to using the vest. I didn’t find it to be as effective, and I certainly didn’t think it was comfortable.

    Would you rather use the vest or do chest PT when you’re sick?

    Bonus question: do you use the cough assist as well. I’m not as disciplined as I should be, but I try to use this more often than not even when I’m healthy.
