W17: CLIN: CF Pulmonary Disease: Evaluation & Treatment

Oct 10, 2014 2:00pm ‐ Oct 10, 2014 3:45pm

This workshop will review clinical research on the evaluation and treatment of pulmonary manifestations of cystic fibrosis. The research presented will include predictors of disease severity and response to treatment as well as a novel imaging technique utilizing magnetic resonance. The session will also explore how the addition of therapies such as hypertonic saline and ivacaftor may benefit cystic fibrosis patients.

W18: NRS: Caring for the Patient With Advanced Disease

Oct 10, 2014 2:00pm ‐ Oct 10, 2014 3:45pm

The presentation of advanced lung disease patients in the cystic fibrosis population is becoming more common due to improved treatment strategies which extend life. Caregivers are required to be well versed in the care of this population including introduction to palliative care, lung transplant, and advanced directives. Special considerations in the administration and compliance with immunosuppression, pain therapy, and antibiotic treatments is critical in the advanced lung disease patient.

W20: PT & RT: Airway Clearance Prescriptions in Difficult Clinical Situations

Oct 10, 2014 2:00pm ‐ Oct 10, 2014 3:45pm

This workshop will focus on clinical scenarios and novel methods of delivery and enhancement of airway clearance and invite discussion from a mixed audience of physical and respiratory therapists, primary providers and researchers. Invited speakers will define difficult situations, especially in the adult CF patient, as well as pulmonary and extra-pulmonary physical barriers to effective airway clearance. The second portion of the workshop will explore research into novel methods of approaching the current standard of care of airway clearance and means to improve and augment current standard practice.

W21: CFTR: Intersection Between CFTR & Cellular Signaling

Preview Available

W21: CFTR: Intersection Between CFTR & Cellular Signaling

Oct 11, 2014 2:30pm ‐ Oct 11, 2014 4:15pm

Many signaling molecules and pathways affect CFTR expression and/or function, thus directly impacting CFTR deficiency in CF. Conversely, lack of CFTR in CF cells and tissues alters cell functions other than anion conductance, such as inflammatory responses, that contribute to health outcomes. This session is devoted to presentations that highlight interplays between CFTR and its cellular environment that affect disease progression and/or the efficacy of therapeutic approaches for CF.

W22: APP&D: Airway Defense: Infection, Inflammation & Remodeling

Oct 11, 2014 2:30pm ‐ Oct 11, 2014 4:15pm

This session will evaluate mechanisms underpinning the interplay between infection, inflammation and repair/remodeling in CF lung disease. Presentations will focus on host-pathogen interaction in the setting of dysfunctional CFTR.
