  2. 2. WHAT IS CYSTIC FIBROSIS Affect on it and how it is transmit DONT SMOKE Mostly its a diseases of Hereditary and it also mostly from smoking or polluted air. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a chronic, life-shortening disease that happens as a result of a genetic defect. The defective gene interferes with the body’s ability to transfer water and salt to and from cells. This causes secretions, which are normally thin and watery in healthy people, to become very thick and sticky. The thick secretions clog up organs and prevent them from working properly. Cystic fibrosis causes problems in the lungs when the thick mucus builds up and gets stuck in the airways. The transmit will take as thick areas of mucous develop in the lungs and allow for certain types of harmful bacteria to grow in there. Also you will cough a lot (dies from the infection). Mostly it will come from your parents DNA or your habits like smoking.
  3. 3. TREATMENT ON CYSTIC FIBROSIS There were no treatment but now days we have some type of treatment, example prevent and control lung infections, loosen and remove thick, sticky mucus from the lungs, prevent or treat blockages in the intestines, provide enough nutrition, and prevent dehydration (a condition in which the body doesnt have enough fluids). If you or your child has cystic fibrosis, you may be treated by a cystic fibrosis specialist. Often, a cystic fibrosis specialist works with a medical team of nurses, physical therapists, dietitians, and social workers. Cystic fibrosis specialists often are located at major medical centers.Normal lung to CF lung... This is the surgery for taking the gum that stuck in your lungs or stomach
  4. 4. Cultural effect of Cystic Fibrosis Current numbers of non-Caucasian CF patients are small, collectively they represent sizeable groups and increasingly more is becoming known about the spectrum of mutations in the CFTR gene in different populations. Such as, important to acknowledge that there will be certain sociocultural challenges in interacting with and managing such patients. This paper explores such developments and considers some of the current and future challenges facing those who treat the disease. Techniques applied in other illness contexts for establishing and maintaining effective patient-professional relationships, reviewing patient education, resolving treatment conflicts and improving adherence are discussed, as are the implications for future research.
  5. 5. ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECT OF CYSTICFIBROSIS Air pollution can further affect Cystic fibrosis condition, this hereditary disease affects the mucous glands (found throughout the body) which include in the lungs. As a result, these patients have increased number of lung infections and breathing problems and have shown the serving complications associated with cystic fibrosis are become worse in patients who live near urban areas where air pollution concentration is higher.
