Core Tip We herein present an overview of the applications of lung clearance index (LCI) in monitoring the respiratory health status of children with cystic fibrosis (CF). LCI is a more sensitive marker than spirometry and unlike spirometry it can be performed across the entire pediatric age range. At present, it is mostly used in research settings. However, as more data become available from longitudinal studies, it may be proved to be a very useful marker of respiratory status monitoring in children with CF, able to identify early those who are at risk for deterioration and allowing the early application of more aggressive interventions.
