This workshop will review the latest trends in respiratory microbiology based on US CF Registry data. This session will also focus on the long-term impact of successful Pseudomonas aeruginosa eradication on health outcomes and the chronic use of inhaled liposomal amikacin in the management of chronic Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection. The results of a large survey will also be presented examining antibiotic utilization to treat Mycobacterium abscessus infection. Lastly, the usefulness of biofilm antimicrobial susceptibility testing and microbiome analysis in the management of CF pulmonary exacerbations will be presented.
