Description

Early aggressive treatment of pulmonary disease and optimization of nutritional status in cystic fibrosis during early childhood is essential to achieving improved outcomes in adulthood. Unfortunately, there are several challenges within this age group ranging from the extensive need for parental education, rapid movement through developmental stages and lack of concrete evidence from randomized controlled trials to guide care. This session will address the infant and preschool guidelines in the context of this challenging developmental period of life.

Learning Objectives:
  • Apply the Infant Care and Preschool Age Guidelines Uniformly in the Clinical Setting
  • Discuss the Benefits of Early Aggressive Pulmonary Management in Cystic Fibrosis
  • Describe the Benefits of Early Aggressive Nutritional Management in Cystic Fibrosis
