The book covers all aspects of care, including both paediatric and adult-specific issues and summarize up-to-date literature in a concise and focussed style.

There is an emphasis on the practical aspects of management with the effects of CF in the lung, the microbiology of pulmonary CF, and management of exacerbations covered in separate chapters.
