The immediate effects of a single autogenic drainage session on ventilatory mechanics in adult subjects with cystic fibrosis

]. The forced oscillations technique (FOT), developed in the 1950s by DuBois [ 9 ], allows analysis of ventilatory mechanics, resistance (Rrs), and reactance (Xrs), both globally and at different levels ... ]. Since the FOT has been shown to provide relevant information on respiratory mechanics, the primary aim of this study was to gain insight into the physiological changes occurring in CF subjects after
