Congenital pneumonia is a medical condition which can lead to life-threatening complication in the absence of prompt management. For improving breathing, clearing pulmonary secretions, and facilitating drainage, respiratory physiotherapy plays an important role. Here, we report two cases with congenital pneumonia, who were managed with prolonged slow expiratory (PSE) technique along with other pulmonary rehabilitation techniques. PSE technique is an advanced chest physiotherapy technique, in which expiration is prolonged beyond the normal phase. This helps in stimulating the diaphragm and facilitates the pulmonary clearance.
