About this book

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the multisystem disease, cystic fibrosis, for both pediatric and adult patients.  Written by experts in the field, the text outlines the progressive nature of CF as well as the impact of this autosomal recessive disease on the respiratory, gastrointestinal, endocrine, rheumatologic, and renal systems, as well as the patient’s mental health.  The book begins with a chapter describing the history of cystic fibrosis and how the face of this life-shortening disease has changed over the past several decades.  The following chapters elucidate the pathophysiology of how cystic fibrosis impacts each organ system.  Current management and therapeutics are detailed with step-by-step guidelines for clinicians.  This book is unique in that it highlights the entire person, not just the respiratory system, with detailed inclusion of the patient perspectives throughout, informing practice standards and considerations. This is an ideal guide for pediatric and adult physicians who care for patients with cystic fibrosis, as well as respiratory therapists, physical therapists, nurses, nutritionists, and pharmacists who care for these patients.
