The results of these case studies were presented at the European Respiratory Society (ERS) congress, the most important pulmonology congress worldwide.
With regard to the lack of information about physiotherapy effects in this context, the results of these two cases studies are essential to demonstrate the feasibility of early physiotherapy in such patients. The study revealed early physiotherapy improved lung secretion removal, respiratory mechanics outcomes, gas exchange, and muscle strength without adverse effects.
