Notes

0 – 6 years

The CF RSQ was developed by the AREST CF team and collects information about the child’s health (cough, sputum, respiratory tract infection, admissions, exercise and medications) in the preceding three months.

The RSQ was developed by the AREST CF team for non-CF participants and includes questions adapted from ISAAC.

1 If Pseudomonas aeruginosa is detected via sputum or BAL samples in a preschool (3 – 6 years) CF cohort participant, respiratory function tests (SBW and MBW) are performed

2 Spirometry only performed in children aged 5 and 6 years

3 EIT measured during infant MBW

4 EIT measurements were started in 2017

0 – 1 year sub-study

1 As per the Detecting Early Lung Disease (0 – 6 years) schedule

7 – 9 years

The CF RSQ was developed by the AREST CF team and collects information about the child’s health (cough, sputum, respiratory tract infection, admissions, exercise and medications) in the preceding three months.

The RSQ was developed by the AREST CF team for non-CF participants and includes questions adapted from ISAAC.

1 If Pseudomonas aeruginosa is detected in a school age (7 – 9 years) CF cohort participant, respiratory function tests (SBW and MBW) are performed pre and post eradication.

2 Optional assessments.
