Hospital-based management for cystic fibrosis patients (pediatric)
If an admission is required, in almost all cases we recommend hospitalization at BC Children's Hospital, Vancouver instead of a community hospital. This is because our hospital and clinic staff has more experience with this complex condition and its specialized treatment requirements. Since CF is a relatively uncommon condition, most community hospitals can not develop this expertise and do not have staff experienced in dealing with the unique requirements of CF patients.
