Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Margaret W. Leigh, MD (University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Medicine)
Description: This unique book compiles the experiences of well-respected cystic fibrosis clinicians to comprehensively detail all aspects of care and management of hospitalized cystic fibrosis patients.
Purpose: The book's purpose is to serve as a useful resource for cystic fibrosis caregivers and thereby improve care for cystic fibrosis patients. The prognosis for patients with this complex disease has improved steadily over the last 20-30 years with the development of successful treatment approaches. By organizing and disseminating these therapeutic approaches, this book should further improve the care and prognosis of these patients.
Audience: This book is targeted for physicians and other health professionals involved in the care of cystic fibrosis patients, including pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, infectious disease specialists, surgeons, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, nutritionists, social workers, and nurses.
Features: The text and numerous tables are structured to effectively highlight key points and enumerate treatment options. Specific recommendations are based on clinical studies that are appropriately referenced as well as on the personal experience of these clinicians.
Assessment: This is a valuable and useful resource. Distributed throughout the book are many "clinical pearls of wisdom" that will be appreciated by medical students and residents as well as seasoned cystic fibrosis caregivers. More importantly, this well-structured book provides a guideline for the care of cystic fibrosis patients. No other consolidated, comprehensive resource is available.
