BACKGROUND Accurate assessment of pulmonary status in young children with cystic fibrosis (CF) requires sensitive and objective monitoring techniques. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of lung clearance index (LCI) calculated from multiple breath washout (MBW), home nocturnal pulse oximetry and home nocturnal cough recording in young children with CF, and determine whether these tests can distinguish CF patients from healthy controls. METHODS We performed a prospective… CONTINUE READING
