This pocketbook will be a concise companion for all health care professionals in respiratory medicine, paediatrics, and primarycare who manage, or come across, patients with CF. The book will cover all aspects of care, including both paediatric and adult-specific issues and summarize up-to-date literature in a concise and focussed style. There will be 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 will also be addressed,and potential future therapies reviewed. This second edition will be 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.
