Quality and safety initiative: Pulmonology

Cystic fibrosis care

People with CF have chronic persistent infection and inflammation of their airways that periodically worsens, causing episodes of airway obstruction and increased symptoms that we call pulmonary exacerbations. It is critical to recognize these exacerbations and properly treat them with antibiotics and other therapies in order to prevent lung damage.

UCAN Community Asthma Program

Asthma is the #1 reason children have to stay in the hospital. Children with asthma can have difficulty breathing leading to hospital stays, missed school, missed work for parents, and worry for parents who are watching for the next asthma attack.
