Abstract

Cystic fibrosis has ceased to be a terminal illness for children and has become a chronic disease affecting both children and adults. Life expectancy, already over 29 years, is increasing with new therapeutic interventions. Pathophysiology, assessment, and treatment information is presented here to assist adult health nurses in caring for patients with cystic fibrosis.
