Positive expiratory pressure therapy versus other airway clearance techniques for bronchiectasis

The primary aim of this review is to determine the effects of PEP therapy compared with other ACTs on HRQOL, rate of acute exacerbations and incidence of hospitalisation in individuals with stable or acute non-CF bronchiectasis.

Secondary aims include determining the effects of PEP therapy upon physiological outcomes and clinical signs and symptoms compared with other ACTs in individuals with stable or acute non-CF bronchiectasis.

This is a protocol.
