A concise companion for all health care professionals in respiratory medicine, pediatrics, and primary care who manage, or come across, patients with CF.

The book covers all aspects of care, including both paediatric and adult-specific issues and summarize up-to-date literature in a concise and focussed style.

There is an emphasis on the practical aspects of management with the effects of CF in the lung, the microbiology of pulmonary CF, and management of exacerbations covered in separate chapters. The psychosocial aspects of CF care, end of life care and lung transplantation are also addressed, and potential future therapies reviewed. This second edition has been updated to reflect the UK CF Trust Standards of Care; include emerging organisms, eg Pandorea, and treatment guidelines and Cochrane reviews; an expanded section on physiotherapy; and a new chapter on pharmacopeia.
