New CF Wind Sprint Demonstrates How to Use the PowerLung

As part of its CF Awareness Month focus on exercise, the Boomer Esiason Foundation has released Episode 17 in the Cystic Fibrosis Wind Sprint series: Using the PowerLung.

In this video, BEF Volunteer Jerry Cahill demonstrates how to use the PowerLung, an easy-to-use device that can help increase lung capacity and strengthen the breathing muscles. The PowerLung also can help people with cystic fibrosis clear their lungs of mucus.
