What is the condition that your patient has?

If it is chronic, such as bronchiectasis, the patient needs to learn to do it himself/herself at home. Unless the patient lives alone, this is the best way to maintain clearance of secretions. Autogenic drainage involves positioning, controlled breathing, self-application of vibrations and as much activity as possible.
If acute, the same applies, but a couple of visits may be necessary to review.
Modern drugs have made chest physiotherapy largely redundant in Australia.
In three years at a health centre, I saw one patient, whose doctor was still old-fashioned and believed we still treated bronchitis. Deep breathing control and activity works just as effectively with no drain on resources.

Nari;

Thank you ,will be my first chest practical work ,his doctor diagnosed the patient as chronic bronchectasis, with Rt.middle and lower lobes sputum this what i received through the reference ,i meet that chest specialist today asked him , i searched for driange , i found that there are different positions for each segment of the lobes How could be more specialised for which segments affected ,he replied me we performed MRI for the chest ,and the report mentioned what i wrote to you .

Personally , i do not have skills in assessing chest patient even i do not know how to locate that affected segments ???

I have stethoscope , but i do not have cortical experience in listening to chest sounds .

Regards
Emad
