Predictors and outcome of low initial forced expiratory volume in 1 second measurement in children with cystic fibrosis.

Com G, Carroll JL, Castro MM et al.
In cystic fibrosis (CF), a poor clinical outcome has been shown to be closely linked to the presence of pulmonary infections, lung function measurements below normal values, and a poor nutritional status. Even in young individuals with CF, a poor nutritional status may be associated with a poor outcome several years later, and the development of chronic Pseudomonas aeruginosa lung infection with a mucoid phenotype can have a negative influence on survival.
