Six Minute Walk Test (6MWT) is a field exercise test widely used in clinical practice, both in adults and in pediatric patients. The primary aim of the study is to evaluate the physical performance of the subjects and compare them with the predicted Italian values. The secondary aim is to verify the possible relationship between the 6MWT distance (...

Inhaled therapy is widely used for treatment of many respiratory disorders. Drug delivery in lungs is dependent on the correct use of aerosol devices and patients’ training is vital for a correct therapy administration. Therefore, is very important to assess the skills of professionals involved in training patients to the correct use of inhaler dev...

Background The assessment of burnout is important to understand the wellnessof healthcare workers and the quality of their performance. There aremany tests for the analysis of burnout, such as the Maslach BurnoutInventory (MBI) [1], which are usually generic and not specific forworkers that deal with chronic diseases, in particular with Cystic Fibr...
Article
Background: Lung clearance index (LCI2.5 ) is a marker of overall lung ventilation inhomogeneity and has proven to be able to detect early peripheral damage in subjects with cystic fibrosis (CF), with greater sensitivity than conventional spirometry. Combining its sensitivity with the output of an incremental exercise testing, we hypothesized that...
Conference Paper
Background: Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder of motile cilia. Impaired mucociliary clearance in the lungs leads to sputum retention and recurrent respiratory tract infections. Accordingly, a program of physiotherapy is recommended to these patients with the inclusion of sinonasal irrigation, airway clearance t...
Conference Paper
Bacterial contamination of home nebulizers and devices of people with CF has been documented. Starting from 2003, several editions of guidelines were published for infection prevention and control (IP&C) in an effort to reduce the risk of acquisition and transmission of pathogens. Respiratory equipment has to be cleaned, disinfected, rinsed, and dr...
Conference Paper
CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) and NIV (noninvasive ventilation) are adopted in adjunct to airway clearance in cystic fibrosis when effectiveness of other techniques decreases due to individual fatigue, shortness of breath or overwhelming amount of secretions. They improve oxygenation and alveolar recruitment, regulate breathing reducin...
Conference Paper
Background CFTR modulators and potentiators opened a new scenario in thetreatment of specific genetic defects among CF patients. These new therapeutic options are still undergoing a regulatory and distributionprocess by Italian healthcare system to become part of drugs portfo-lio for CF patients. CF Centers throughout Italy were able to prescribeth...
Article
Objectives: The present cross-sectional study aims to verify the relationship between quantitative multivolume magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and clinical indicators of ventilatory abnormalities in cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease. Methods: 28 patients (10-27 years) with CF lung disease performed non-enhanced chest MRI, spirometry and multipl...
