When you have cystic fibrosis, you need a plan to stay well and live well.
The Adult Cystic Fibrosis Program provides the specialized care you need to stay on track, especially if you are transitioning out of the pediatric program with our partner, the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. At ChristianaCare, we work with you to develop a treatment plan that lets you live a full life despite your chronic illness.
An experienced pulmonologist will oversee your care, including regularly assessing your use of medications and pancreatic enzyme supplements. The pulmonologist also leads an interdisciplinary team of other health care professionals who will work together to monitor your respiratory and digestive health, and fine-tune your diet, exercise regimen and airway clearance techniques. This team includes:
The Adult Cystic Fibrosis Program has a pulmonologist on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help our current patients in an emergency.
