Pulmonary Exacerbations and IV Antibiotics

In this issue:

Managing pulmonary exacerbations in people with cystic fibrosis: is there high-grade evidence to support best practices? How helpful is the most current guidance? Does the recent research challenge the current standard of care?

Learning objectives:

  • Discuss the impact of prolonged treatments with intravenous antibiotics for pulmonary exacerbations.
