Advice

Smoking, or being exposed to other people's smoke, is a major obstacle to the evacuation of mucus.

It is necessary to fight against the dryness of the ambient air (humidifier...) to avoid the drying of secretions. It is also recommended to drink a lot.

In the elderly or young children, the inability to evacuate sputum may justify the help of a physiotherapist, on medical prescription.
