CF Care Guidelines - Infection Control

Infections can lead to lung damage in people with CF. To know the best ways to prevent lung infections, the CF Foundation brought together experts in infection control and CF lung disease to develop care guidelines. The guidelines include information on:

  • Ways to prevent the spread of infections
    • in clinics
    • in hospitals
    • at home
    • at school
    • CF Foundation events
  • How to clean respiratory equipment
  • How to avoid infection (i.e., hot tubs, camps, construction sites, etc.)
