I am currently trying to get in touch with the respiratory therapist at the clinic but I thought I would seek input here. My son (15) has a cold and he doesn't seem to be coughing with much force. As another boy in the area with dmd passed away several months ago (just shy of his 15th birthday) from pneumonia this is of course on my mind. I wondered if we should be using a cough assist as a preventative to keep the cough from developing into something more serious. We have not used one at all up to this point. I did take him to the doc yesterday and his lungs sound good. He did give him an antibiotic though.
I just wanted to hear what others had to say, thanks
