    Transcript

    00:01 So, in a nutshell, cystic fibrosis is an autosomal recessive disorder.

    00:06 It involves a mutation in the CFTR gene on chromosome 7.

    00:10 The patient will have sticky mucus that can plug up their respiratory, GI, and reproductive tracts.

    00:16 Cystic fibrosis is managed by a multidisciplinary team.

    00:21 The interventions focus on managing respiratory mucus, nutritional deficiencies, and minimizing infections.

    00:28 Lung transplantation is a treatment, but it's not a cure.

    00:33 Patients with cystic fibrosis have a diminished lifespan due to respiratory failure.

    00:38 Thank you for watching this lecture on cystic fibrosis.
