JCOM Abstract

J Clin Outcomes Manage 
2007 Apr;14(4):205-210
Diagnosis and treatment of infants with bronchiolitis
Quintero DR, Gershan WM

Abstract Objective: To review the diagnosis and management of bronchiolitis. Methods: Qualitative review of the literature. Results: Bronchiolitis is a common disease that affects most children under 2 years of age. The most common etiology is respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection. The diagnosis is usually clinical, although rapid screening tests are available that can assist with early identification and decrease the use of unnecessary treatment. Observation, hydration, and oxygen remain the mainstays of treatment. Palivizumab has been a major advance in the control of RSV infection and has helped to decrease long-term complications in vulnerable populations. Conclusion: Acute management of bronchiolitis varies. Routine use of medications to treat bronchiolitis is not necessary
