Treatment Desired Outcomes

Therapeutic outcomes in CF care relate to both chronic and acute treatment goals. With chronic management, the primary goals are to delay disease progression and op-

fi timize quality of life. Maximizing nutritional status through pancreatic enzyme replacement and vitamin and nutritional supplements is necessary for normal growth and development and for maintaining long-term lung function. Reduction of airway inflammation and infection and aggressive preventive therapies minimize acute pulmonary exacerbations and delay pulmonary decline. In pulmonary exacerbations, therapy is directed toward reducing acute airway inflammation and obstruction. This is accomplished through more aggressive airway clearance regimens and antibiotic therapy with a goal of returning lung function to pre-exacerbation levels or greater.
