MODEL RELEASED. Breathing assessment. Cystic fibrosis patient breathing in through a ventilator while a physiotherapist feels her chest to asses her breathing. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a hereditary disease affecting the lungs, sweat glands and digestive system. Both the lungs and pancreas produce abnormally thick mucus. The mucus in the lungs encourages bacterial growth, leading to severe respiratory infections. The mucus in the pancreas blocks the release of digestive enzymes, resulting in malabsorption.
