  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To compare the effects of standard postural drainage (greater (30° to 45° head down tilt) and lesser (15° to 20° head down tilt)) with modified postural drainage (without head down tilt) with regard to gastroesophageal reflux in infants and young children up to six years old with cystic fibrosis in terms of safety and efficacy.
