Content of review 1, reviewed on January 14, 2016
This is an updated Cochrane review (since last one of 2013). However whilst a further 29 potentially eligible new studies were identified on search (compared with 2013), the same 8 studies met inclusion criteria. Subsequently there are no new results or conclusions ensuing from this updated review. The challenge to researchers and clinicians remains to conduct robust RCTs to establish any long term benefits of chest physiotherapy for people with CF.
