Aminoglycoside (AG) antibiotics are essential for the treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF) lung infections. Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Nontuberculous mycobacteria. Monitoring is critical secondary to potential nephrotoxicity and ototoxicity. Children’s Mercy Kansas City (CMKC), standardized nephrotoxicity monitoring in 2016. Observed variable ototoxicity monitoring practices. Prevalence of ototoxicity, 2016 CFF Patient Registry, 1.1% in pediatric patients (less than or equal to 18 years). 2.2% in pediatric and adult population. National Institute of Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, 13% in US population equal to or less than 12 years old.
