Nutrition in Cystic Fibrosis Excerpt :

Nutritional therapies have been key early interventions, and remain central to the well-being and survival of patients with cystic fibrosis. The nature of the disease causes significant alterations in a patient’s ability to process and assimilate nutrients. Furthermore, many factors contribute to higher metabolic demands throughout a patient’s life. In combination, maldigestion, malabsorption, and increased metabolic demands pose a high hurdle for the patient to overcome in order to maintain optimal nutritional status. Nutrition in Cystic Fibrosis: A Guide for Clinicians is an excellent resource for physicians, nurses and dietitians who deliver care for patients with cystic fibrosis. The book provides an introduction to cystic fibrosis and nutritional assessments. It will also serve as a comprehensive guide to the nutritional monitoring and management of patients with cystic fibrosis including special populations within cystic fibrosis that require additional considerations. The chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up to date scientific and clinical information. Nutrition in Cystic Fibrosis: A Guide for Clinicians targets pediatric and adult pulmonologists and gastroenterologists, residents and fellows, internists, pediatricians, nurses, dietitians and general practitioners who treat patients with cystic fibrosis.

Cystic Fibrosis Life Expectancy Excerpt :

Cystic fibrosis is a lifestyle disease. Very few people on the West are aware that there are many Russians with CF (cystic fibrosis) who are over 50 and even 60 years old due to their adherence to one medical therapy that was developed and practiced by over 150 Soviet and Russian medical doctors. Since 1960s, these MDs have applied the Buteyko breathing therapy to increase body oxygen levels, and these doctors claim that people with CF can have at least normal (or average) life expectancy if their maintain high (or normal) body O2 content. You will not find such information in any other cystic fibrosis books. Cystic fibrosis life expectancy has been steadily growing for many decades. In late 1930s, most babies with CF died before their first birthday. Later, in the 1950s, CF life expectancy was less than 10 years. Soon after, due to use of various therapies, it increased from 14 years (in the 1980s) up to current 35-37 years. Some researchers, in their cystic fibrosis books, predict that babies born with CF during this century can live up to their 50s. But a group of Russian doctors claim that main symptoms of CF can be defeated. My own experience, in successful elimination of major symptoms of CF in my students, also suggests the same conclusions. These breathing methods address lifestyle factors that influence body O2 and use breathing exercises to increase body oxygenation. The book offers a detailed description of main lifestyle modules that increase body O2 naturally and significantly reduce many symptoms of CF (e.g., coughing, too much mucus, wheezing, and various digestive concerns) within days. How and why can these therapies work? CF is considered a genetic disease. So is asthma, or Down syndrome. Not all genetic diseases are the same. Many of them, CF included, are also lifestyle diseases meaning that lifestyle choices have a direct impact on quality of life (and CF life expectancy). Western medical studies clearly proved that tissue hypoxia (low O2 in cel

Cystic Fibrosis Third Edition Excerpt :

This international and authoritative work, which brings together current knowledge in the field of cystic fibrosis, has become established in previous editions as a leading reference in the field. The third edition continues to provide everything that the clinician or allied health professional treating patients with cystic fibrosis will need in a single manageable volume. Thoroughly revised and updated throughout, it reflects the significant advances that have been made in the field since the second edition published in 2000. Cystic Fibrosis evaluates in detail the basic science that underlies the disease and its progression, putting it into a clinical context. Diagnostic and clinical aspects are covered in depth, as are monitoring the condition and the importance of multi-disciplinary care, reflected in the sections into which the new edition has been sub-divided to improve accessibility. Future developments, including novel therapies, are covered in a concluding section. The clinical areas have been much expanded, with the introduction of separate chapters covering sleep, lung mechanics and the work of breathing, upper airway disease, insulin deficiency and diabetes, bone disease, and sexual and reproductive issues. A new section on monitoring discusses the use of databases to improve patient care, and covers monitoring in different age groups, exercise testing and the outcomes of clinical trials in these areas. Separate chapters are devoted to paramedical issues, including nursing, physiotherapy, psychology, and palliative and spiritual care. Throughout, the emphasis is on providing an up-to-date and balanced review of both the clinical and basic sciences aspects of the subject, and to reflect the multi-disciplinary nature of the cystic fibrosis care team. Drawing on the expertise of a team of international specialists from a variety of backgrounds, the third edition of Cystic Fibrosiswill continue to find a broad readership among respiratory physicians, paediat

Patient Treatment Adherence Excerpt :

This new book summarizes the adherence literature for a number of specific health behaviors and populations. It provides a comprehensive source on the conceptualization, interventions, and measurement of treatment adherence and a synthesis of the research across demographic and chronic diseases. The text presents problems associated with treatment adherence; theoretical models that have commonly been used to understand, predict, and/or improve adherence; adherence with specific behaviors including exercise, diet, rehabilitation, medication, and psychological therapies; and strategies in enhancing adherence. Because chronic diseases involve similar behaviors, the handbook is organized by specific behaviors and special populations, and not by disease. Every chapter is sub-organized by specific diseases to ensure easy access for the readers and features a discussion of adherence across demographic and chronic conditions, a review of previous interventions directed at the particular behavior or population, questions and scoring algorithms for widely used measures of treatment adherence, a discussion of the clinical research, and where appropriate, policy implications. Patient Treatment Adherence addresses: practical recommendations to improve adherence; the impact of non-adherence including costs and health-related quality of life; methodological issues such as assessing cost-effectiveness; and the use of technological advances to improve adherence. Intended for health service professionals, health, clinical, social, and cognitive psychologists, primary care physicians, pharmacists, and policy-makers, this text is also an excellent resource for graduate courses on health psychology and public health.
