A new model rat with acute bronchiolitis and its application to research on the toxicology of inhaled particulate matter. (1/342)

The aim of the present study was to establish a useful animal model that simulates humans sensitive to inhaled particulate matter (PM). We have developed a new rat model of acute bronchiolitis (Br) by exposing animals to NiCl2 (Ni) aerosols for five days. Three days following the Ni exposure, the animals developed signs of tachypnea, mucous hypersecretion, and bronchiolar inflammation which seemed to progress quickly during the fourth to fifth day. They recovered from lesions after four weeks in clean air. To assess the sensitivity of the Br rats to inhaled particles, two kinds of PM of respirable size were tested with doses similar to or a little higher to the recommended threshold limit values (TLVs) for the working environment in Japan. Titanium dioxide (TiO2 = Ti) was chosen as an inert and insoluble particles and vanadium pentoxide (V2O5 = V), as a representative soluble and toxic airborne material. The Br rats exposed to either Ti or V were compared the pathological changes in the lungs and the clearance of particles to those in normal control or Br rats kept in clean air. The following significant differences were observed in Br rats: 1. delayed recovery from pre-existing lesions or exacerbated inflammation, 2. reductions in deposition and clearance rate of inhaled particles with the progress of lesions. The present results suggest that Br rats are more susceptible to inhaled particles than control rats. Therefore, concentrations of particulate matter lower than the TLVs for Japan, which have no harmful effects on normal lungs, may not always be safe in the case of pre-existing lung inflammation.  (+info)

Seroprevalence of IgG antibodies to the chlamydia-like microorganism 'Simkania Z' by ELISA. (2/342)

The newly described microorganism 'Simkania Z', related to the Chlamydiae, has been shown to be associated with bronchiolitis in infants and community acquired pneumonia in adults. The prevalence of infection in the general population is unknown. A simple ELISA assay for the detection of serum IgG antibodies to 'Simkania Z' was used to determine the prevalence of such antibodies in several population samples in southern Israel (the Negev). The groups tested included 94 medical and nursing students, 100 unselected blood donors, 106 adult members of a Negev kibbutz (communal agricultural settlement), and 45 adult Bedouin, residents of the Negev. IgG antibodies to 'Simkania Z' were found in 55-80% of these presumably healthy individuals, independently of antibodies to Chlamydia trachomatis and Chlamydia pneumoniae. The Bedouin had a seropositivity rate of 80%, while all other groups had rates of between 55 and 64%. These results indicate that 'Simkania Z' infection is probably common in southern Israel.  (+info)

Pathological and radiological changes in resected lung specimens in Mycobacterium avium intracellulare complex disease. (3/342)

The present study was designed to evaluate the pathological and immunohistochemical findings of Mycobacterium avium intracellulare complex (MAC) lung infection. A retrospective study was performed in five cases with positive cultures for MAC in whom lung resections were performed between January 1989 and December 1996. A determination of whether or not MAC caused pulmonary disease was made using the 1997 criteria defined by the American Thoracic Society. In addition, MAC was cultured from all of the five lung specimens. Pathological and immunohistochemical findings as well as chest computed tomography (CT) findings were evaluated in these five patients. Pathological findings of bronchiectasis, bronchiolitis, centrilobular lesion, consolidation, cavity wall and nodules were demonstrated, respectively, in relation to chest CT findings. Extensive granuloma formation throughout the airways was clearly demonstrated. Immunohistochemical staining demonstrated: 1) epithelioid cells and giant cells; 2) myofibroblasts extensively infiltrating the cavity wall; and 3) B-cells detected in aggregates in the vicinity of the epithelioid granulomas. This study identified pathological and immunohistochemical characteristics of Mycobacterium avium complex infection relative to chest computed tomography findings and allowed the conclusion that bronchiectasis and bronchiolitis were definitely caused by Mycobacterium avium complex infection.  (+info)

Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies in diffuse panbronchiolitis. (4/342)

BACKGROUND: There are some reports of the coexistence of chronic suppurative lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis and systemic vasculitis. Diffuse panbronchiolitis has the same characteristics as chronic recurrent sinopulmonary infection and respiratory bronchiolitis. METHODS: Serum samples from 30 patients with diffuse panbronchiolitis and 57 patients with other pulmonary diseases were tested to find the titer of myeloperoxidase antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (MPO-ANCA). RESULTS: We found MPO-ANCA positivity in 4 patients with diffuse panbronchiolitis but not in those with other pulmonary diseases. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings show that MPO-ANCA is positive in some patients with diffuse panbronchiolitis. Careful attention should be paid to the combination of chronic pulmonary infection and various vasculitis.  (+info)

Clinical and immunoregulatory effects of roxithromycin therapy for chronic respiratory tract infection. (5/342)

The clinical and immunoregulatory effects of long-term macrolide antibiotic therapy for patients with chronic lower respiratory tract infections (CLRTI) were investigated. Clinical parameters and neutrophil chemotactic mediators in the epithelial lining fluid (ELF) of CLRTI patients (n = 10) were examined before and after 3 months oral administration of roxithromycin (RXM). The in vitro effects of RXM were also examined on the release of these mediators from alveolar macrophages (AM) and neutrophils. Arterial oxygen tension (p<0.05), vital capacity (VC) (p<0.001), %VC (p<0.05) and forced expiratory volume in one second (p<0.01) were improved after RXM treatment, but airway bacteria were not eradicated. Among the mediators, the levels of interleukin (IL)-8, neutrophil elastase (NE) and leukotriene B4 (LTB4) were higher in ELF than in plasma of CLRTI patients and they decreased after RXM treatment (n = 7, p<0.05 for each). RXM concentrations were significantly increased in the bronchoalveolar lavage cells of the treated patients. In in vitro experiments, RXM showed inhibitory effects on IL-8 release from AM and neutrophils. In conclusion, interleukin-8, neutrophil elastase and leukotriene B4 contribute to the neutrophilic inflammation in the airways of chronic lower respiratory tract infection patients and the clinical effects of roxithromycin may, in part, be attributable to the suppression of excess release of the chemotactic mediators from inflammatory cells.  (+info)

Clinical significance of respiratory bronchiolitis on open lung biopsy and its relationship to smoking related interstitial lung disease. (6/342)

BACKGROUND: Respiratory bronchiolitis-associated interstitial lung disease (RBILD) is a rare form of interstitial lung disease which may present in similar fashion to other types of chronic interstitial pneumonia. The purpose of this study was to undertake a clinicopathological review of 10 patients with RBILD and to examine the clinical and imaging data related to its histopathological pattern, in particular the relationship of RBILD to smoking. METHODS: Thirteen out of 168 retrospectively reviewed patients, from whom biopsy specimens were taken for suspected diffuse lung disease, were identified with a histopathological pattern of RBILD. Three cases were rejected as follow up data were unavailable. The 10 remaining cases constituted the study group and both clinical and imaging data were collected from patients' notes and referring physicians. RESULTS: Histopathologically, four cases of RBILD overlapped with the pattern of desquamative interstitial pneumonitis (DIP) and nine also had microscopic evidence of centrilobular emphysema. Nine patients were smokers, ranging from 3 to 80 pack years. The one non-smoker had an occupational exposure to the fumes of solder flux. The sex distribution was equal with an age range of 32-65 years. Two patients were clubbed. Lung function tests showed both restrictive and obstructive patterns together with severe reductions in carbon monoxide transfer factor in seven patients. Chest radiographs showed reticular or reticulonodular infiltrates in five patients and a ground glass pattern in two. CT scans were consistent with either DIP or RBILD in six of eight patients. Although seven patients remained stable or improved, either with or without treatment, three patients deteriorated. CONCLUSIONS: This study adds weight to the hypothesis that smoking can cause clinically significant interstitial lung disease, with deterioration in pulmonary function despite treatment. Given the overlapping histopathological patterns of RBILD and DIP and their strong association with smoking, the term "smoking related interstitial lung disease" is suggested for those patients who are smokers.  (+info)

Bronchiolitis in Kartagener's syndrome. (7/342)

The association of diffuse bronchiolitis in patients with Kartagener's syndrome (KS) has not been reported previously. The aim of this study was to present the morphological characteristics of bronchiolitis in patients with KS. Eight patients (four males, four females; mean age 37.9+/-18.7 yrs), clinically diagnosed as KS with the classical triad of chronic pansinusitis, bronchiectasis and situs in versus with dextrocardia, were evaluated. Routine chest radiography showed bronchiectasis and dextrocardia in all patients. Chest computed tomography (CT) showed diffuse centrilobular small nodules up to 2 mm in diameter throughout both lungs in six out of eight patients. Pulmonary function tests revealed marked obstructive impairment in all patients (forced expiratory volume in one second 57.0+/-11.3%, residual volume/total lung capacity 45.+/-12.7%, maximum midexpiratory flow 0.92+/-0.72 L x s(-1), forced vital capacity 74.1+/-12.2% (all mean +/- SD)). The examination of cilial movement of the bronchus revealed immotility in all of the five patients examined. The ultrastructure showed ciliary dynein arm defects in all patients. Histopathological examination of lung specimens obtained at autopsy or by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery showed obliterative thickening of the walls of the membranous bronchioli with infiltration of lymphocytes, plasma cells and neutrophils, but most of the distal respiratory bronchioli were spared and alveolar spaces were overinflated. Pathologically, the diffuse centrilobular small nodules on the chest CT mainly corresponded to membranous bronchiolitis. This is the first report demonstrating that the association of diffuse bronchiolitis might be one of the characteristic features of the lung in Kartagener's syndrome.  (+info)

Respiratory syncytial virus infection and G and/or SH protein expression contribute to substance P, which mediates inflammation and enhanced pulmonary disease in BALB/c mice. (8/342)

A distinct clinical presentation of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection of humans is bronchiolitis, which has clinical features similar to those of asthma. Substance P (SP), a tachykinin neuropeptide, has been associated with neurogenic inflammation and asthma; therefore, we chose to examine SP-induced inflammation with RSV infection. In this study, we examined the production of pulmonary SP associated with RSV infection of BALB/c mice and the effect of anti-SP F(ab)(2) antibodies on the pulmonary inflammatory response. The peak production of pulmonary SP occurred between days 3 and 5 following primary RSV infection and day 1 after secondary infection. Treatment of RSV-infected mice with anti-SP F(ab)(2) antibodies suggested that SP may alter the natural killer cell response to primary and secondary infection. In mice challenged after formalin-inactivated RSV vaccination, SP appears to markedly enhance pulmonary eosinophilia as well as increase polymorphonuclear cell trafficking to the lung. Based on studies with a strain of RSV that lacks the G and SH genes, the SP response to RSV infection appears to be associated with G and/or SH protein expression. These data suggest that SP may be an important contributor to the inflammatory response to RSV infection and that anti-SP F(ab)(2) antibodies might be used to ameliorate RSV-associated disease.  (+info)

Bronchiolitis is a distressing respiratory condition and the most common cause of hospitalization during the first year of life. The hospitalization of an infant is a stressful event for parents and deserves careful consideration. The objective of this work was to develop and validate a self-administered instrument that comprehensively assesses the impact on parents of the hospitalization of their infant for bronchiolitis. The Impact of Bronchiolitis Hospitalization Questionnaire (IBHQ©) was developed using a literature review and pre-study interviews with both parents and clinicians. For finalization and psychometric validation, it was included in a multicenter, longitudinal, observational study conducted in France. Parents of infants under the age of 1 year and hospitalized for bronchiolitis were asked to complete the questionnaire at hospital discharge, and 3 months after. Seven hundred and seven questionnaires were completed by the parents of the 463 eligible infants. After finalization, based on
Diffuse panbronchiolitis (DPB) is an inflammatory lung disease of unknown cause. It is a severe, progressive form of bronchiolitis, an inflammatory condition of the bronchioles (small air passages in the lungs). The term diffuse signifies that lesions appear throughout both lungs, while panbronchiolitis refers to inflammation found in all layers of the respiratory bronchioles (those involved in gas exchange). DPB causes severe inflammation and nodule-like lesions of terminal bronchioles, chronic sinusitis, and intense coughing with large amounts of sputum production. The disease is believed to occur when there is susceptibility, or a lack of immune system resistance, to DPB-causing bacteria or viruses, caused by several genes that are found predominantly in individuals of East Asian descent. The highest incidence occurs among Japanese people, followed by Koreans. DPB occurs more often in males, and usually begins around age 40. It was recognized as a distinct new disease in the early 1960s, and ...
Diffuse panbronchiolitis (DPB) is a rare chronic inflammatory obstructive pulmonary disease primarily affecting the respiratory bronchioles. Diffuse refers to the distribution of the lesions throughout both lungs, and pan- refers to the involvement of inflammation in all layers of the respiratory bronchioles. Onset of the disorder occurs in the second to fifth decade of life, and is clinically manifest by chronic cough, exertional dyspnea, and sputum production. Most patients also have chronic paranasal sinusitis. If untreated, the disorder progresses to bronchiectasis, respiratory failure, and death (summary by {10:Poletti et al., 2006 ...
Diffuse panbronchiolitis (DPB) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways with a high rate of mortality despite treatment with a combination of antibiotics and the use of supportive therapy such as oxygen administration.

I dont remember exactly when I started speaking in medical terms, it just sort of happened. I used to define Evey and Bens illnesses in normal every day terms. Fast heart beat. Barky cough. Old man cough - I really did say that once when Ben was wheezing really bad because I didnt know how else to describe it. Now terms like sinus rhythm, tachycardia, bronchiolitis, chronic lung disease are part of my every day vocabulary and I am frequently asked by health care professionals if Im a nurse. Nope. Just a mom.. So Im digressing. Bens chest x-ray was negative yesterday. AWESOME. Ben has non-RSV bronchiolitis. Again. Not awesome. Non RSV bronchiolitis - what is it? Its essentially RSV without the actual RSV virus. So what is that? Its swelling of the teeny tiny airways in his lungs and is caused by a virus that infects the lower part of his lungs. It causes a nasty cough, shortness of breath, a runny nose, and wheezing, really bad wheezing. Most kids dont get this unless they fall into a ...

Acute bronchiolitis is an infection of the lower respiratory tract causing inflammation of the small airways, leading to bronchiolar obstruction. Corticosteroids are frequently prescribed as anti-inflammatory drugs. The usefulness of corticosteroids for this disease remains controversial, despite many randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Recently, a meta-analysis and systemic review showed significant improvement in clinical symptoms, length of hospital stay and duration of symptoms in children with this disease after treatment with various regimens of systemic corticosteroids.. Dexamethasone is a long acting corticosteroid with biologic half-life ranging from 36-72 hours. A single dose of dexamethasone has been the standard recommendation for the treatment of croup which has a similar pathophysiology without evidence of adverse effects. Furthermore, there is no previous report of this single dosage form of dexamethasone for the treatment of acute bronchiolitis in young children. ...
Acute bronchiolitis refers to airway inflammation and obstruction of the lower respiratory tract and is caused almost exclusively by viral infection in children younger than 2 years. Commonly, symptoms of bronchiolitis begin with rhinitis or congestion and cough and may develop into symptoms of increasing respiratory distress (tachypnea, wheezing, and accessory muscle use). (1) Severity of bronchiolitis can vary from mild symptoms that can be managed at home to acute respiratory failure requiring invasive ventilation. There is wide variation in care for infants admitted to the hospital with bronchiolitis, which persists despite the existence of guidelines. (2)(3)(4) In 2014, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published the Clinical Practice Guideline: The Diagnosis, Management, and Prevention of Bronchiolitis (1) (summarized in Table 1), an updated, revised version of a previous 2006 AAP guideline. (5) The strength of these recommendations are explained in Table 2. (1 … ...
In our study we found eight clinical predictors of admission in infants with acute bronchiolitis. We also developed a clinical risk scoring system which can be used in the emergency department to aid clinical decision making. This scoring system is simple and easy to use, making it applicable to a busy clinical setting. It was developed in a large number of children who were consecutively recruited using a retrospective sample which eliminated any potential observer bias. It employs only objective clinical parameters, limiting the potential for variability when used by different clinicians. The scoring system was developed with clinical applicability as a priority rather than the maximisation of statistical accuracy.. While other studies have looked at predictors of admission in children with bronchiolitis, no other studies have only included infants in their study population. Although in some countries bronchiolitis is diagnosed up to the age of five, a large majority of those admitted to ...

If like me, I never even knew that Bronchiolitis could kill a child? she wrote.. You here[sic] about meningitis, measles, mumps and rubella all being serious childhood illnesses but no body tells you about Bronchiolitis and after speaking with other parents and doctors it is more common than I ever realised especially at this time of year.. Bronchiolitis is an infection of the lungs that causes an inflammation in the bronchioles, the smallest airways that carry oxygen to the lungs.. The ailment is often the result of a virus, and usually develops during the winter months. Symptoms can include:. -Runny nose. -Stuffy nose. -Cough. -Slight fever (but not always). -Wheezing. -Difficulty breathing. -An ear infection in some infants. There is no cure for bronchiolitis, but it usually goes away of its own accord within a few weeks, according to the Mayo Clinic.. Its not clear why sepsis occurs, but it happens when the immune system stops fighting an infection and starts attacking the body instead. ...
Bronchiolitis is a common cause of pediatric hospitalization. Variation in the use of tests and treatments for management of bronchiolitis exists, some of which may contribute to increased health care costs that are estimated to be $545 million annual total direct expenditure nationally.1 In 2006, the American Academy of Pediatrics published a national clinical practice guideline (CPG) for management of children with bronchiolitis.2 The CPG does not recommend routine tests and treatments, emphasizing a diagnosis of bronchiolitis based on history and physical examination, and supportive management. Nevertheless, nationally, there is a wide variation in use of tests and treatments in the management of bronchiolitis.2-4. CPGs can be a powerful resource to reduce variation and help providers deliver disease-specific best practice.5,6 Therefore, many national organizations support development of CPGs.7-9 Integrating a CPG into practice requires changes in physician behaviors and remains a significant ...

The following was adapted from the Canadian Pediatric Societys statement on Bronchiolitis: Recommendations for diagnosis, monitoring and management of children one to 24 months of age. Please see the full statement for the full recommendations from the Canadian Pediatric Society.. Background:. Bronchiolitis is a viral lower respiratory tract infection that leads to obstruction of the small airways. Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is responsible for most cases, however other viruses can cause a similar clinical picture. In Canada, RSV season usually begins between November and January and persists for four to five months. Bronchiolitis affects more than one third of children in the first two years of life and is the most common cause of admission to hospital in the first year. Despite being so common, there is great variation in standards for diagnosis and management of bronchiolitis, which you may see in clinical practice. These guidelines incorporate the most recent evidence to provide ...
Background: Bronchiolitis is a serious, potentially life-threatening respiratory illness commonly affecting babies. It is often caused by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Antibiotics are not recommended for bronchiolitis unless there is concern about complications such as secondary bacterial pneumonia or respiratory failure. Nevertheless, they are used at rates of 34% to 99% in uncomplicated cases. Objectives: To evaluate the effectiveness of antibiotics for bronchiolitis. Search methods: We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL 2010, issue 4), which includes the Cochrane Acute Respiratory Infection Groups Specialised Register, and the Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects, MEDLINE (January 1966 to November 2010), EMBASE (1990 to December 2010) and Current Contents (2001 to December 2010). Selection criteria: Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing antibiotics to placebo in children under two years diagnosed with bronchiolitis, using clinical criteria
In England last year, nearly 40,000 babies and young children with bronchiolitis were admitted to hospital. This infection is usually caused by the respiratory syncytial virus, and in most cases symptoms are mild and last only a few days.. However, a quality standard published in the summer by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) states that admissions for bronchiolitis are rising. NICE quality standards describe high-priority areas for improvement in a defined field of care.. Bronchiolitis is now the third most common reason why babies and young children are admitted to hospital, the quality standard states. But the treatment given is not always in line with recommendations.. Antibiotics. The standard quotes from studies undertaken in UK hospitals that show children with bronchiolitis are being given antibiotics even though these are often ineffective and have side effects. Reducing unnecessary antibiotics will prevent the development of bacterial resistance and will ...

The WHO has recently updated its guidelines for the management of acute respiratory infections (ARIs) in children. These guidelines include the differential diagnosis of cough and difficult breathing, and separate guidelines for the management of pneumonia, bronchiolitis and asthma. This recognises the core issue behind the study in this edition of Archives by Dr Vishwanath Gowraiah and colleagues from four hospitals in India; that many children who fulfil WHOs traditional criteria for pneumonia (cough and difficult breathing with or without chest in-drawing) have wheezy viral infections.1 The WHO guideline, contained in the second edition of the Pocket Book of Hospital Care for Children,2 lists the clinical features in favour of pneumonia, bronchiolitis, asthma and other common and less common causes of cough and respiratory distress.. The relevance of making the distinction between acute wheezy bronchiolitis, asthma and pneumonia is that there are groups of children who do not need ...
Since these respiratory viruses, especially RSV, produce so much illness in young children and are a major cause of medical visits and costs, much research currently is underway. This research is focused on developing effective vaccines to prevent RSV and to prevent infection with some of the other respiratory viruses, such as the parainfluenza and influenza viruses. Although a number of vaccines for the prevention of RSV have been tested in clinical trials, they have yet to be approved for general use. A number of vaccines, which contain live, but weakened, or inactive parts of the virus, appear promising and are being tested further. In addition, a number of antiviral drugs are being developed and tested for both preventing and treating the viruses that cause bronchiolitis.. top. References.

BACKGROUND: The observation of an increased prevalence of allergic disorders coinciding with a decreasing frequency of infectious diseases in early childhood has led to the speculation that infections may prevent allergic sensitization. Information on the role of parasites in this context is limited. Bronchiolitis in infancy has been linked with asthmatic symptoms later in childhood, although the underlying cause of this association is unknown. METHODS: To test the hypothesis that early parasitic infections in infancy might prevent the development of allergic manifestations later in life, the effect of malaria infections during the first year of life on the risk of bronchiolitis was studied in 675 Tanzanian children at 18 months of age. The study was conducted as part of an intervention trial of malaria chemoprophylaxis and/or iron supplementation for the prevention of malaria and anemia in infants. RESULTS: The incidence of bronchiolitis up to 18 months of age in the 675 children was 0.58 ...
These RCTs were well designed, with low overall risk of bias, albeit with some imperfections. Wu and colleagues study was underpowered to detect a planned difference of 30% in admission rate or 24 h in LOS. There was no objective severity of illness criteria for inclusion, admission or discharge readiness, making clinician bias a potential issue. Florin and colleagues included a wide severity-of-illness range (Respiratory Distress Assessment Index (RDAI)4-15) and utilised the RACS (calculated using change in RDAI and respiratory rate), as short-term proxy outcome for need for hospitalisation. Their study was not powered for detection of a change in admission rate.. The RDAI has poor discriminative and construct validity in predicting hospitalisation and LOS in bronchiolitis, in part because it does not include respiratory rate or O2 saturation, both important variables for a clinician to determine disposition.3 Wu and colleagues reaffirm this limitation-although they reported no significant ...
This study provides an evaluation of chest physiotherapy with IET + AC in a large population of infants hospitalized for a first episode of bronchiolitis with time to recovery as the primary endpoint. In this seven-center trial, no evidence of any difference in time to recovery between the IET + AC group and the NS group was found, with no interaction with age group. The CIs around estimates of effect excluded a clinically meaningful difference in time to recovery between groups in the whole population.. Otherwise, there was no evidence of any difference in secondary outcomes between children with and without IET + AC except for vomiting and transient respiratory destabilization during the procedure. This significant difference of vomiting and respiratory destabilization frequency was expected and in accordance with our physiotherapistsexperiences. However, it is worth noting that these side effects of IET + AC were transient and resolved as soon as the procedure was interrupted. Although not ...

Bronchiolitis is a condition that can make infants alarmingly ill and breathless, and it tends to recur each time a child gets an upper respiratory virus in the first two years of life. When faced with a wheezy sounding baby or toddler breathing 60 times a minute, many doctors cannot resist the temptation to try a β adrenergic inhaler. But resist they should. The latest Cochrane review of bronchodilators for bronchiolitis concludes: Bronchodilators such as albuterol or salbutamol do not improve oxygen saturation, do not reduce hospital admission after outpatient treatment, do not shorten the duration of hospitalization and do not reduce the time to resolution of illness at home. (Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2014;6:CD001266.)​ ...

Understanding why some children develop severe bronchiolitis while most children experience an upper respiratory tract infection upon RSV infection remains essential and needs to be answered to improve the care of RSV-infected children in the future. Where several previous studies focused on the microbial content involved in bronchiolitis, most notably by Hasegawa and coworkers, our study exclusively focused on RSV-implicated bronchiolitis [29, 30]. RSV disease severity is a multifactorial problem, in which the viral load and the inflammatory response are important drivers of disease, although this is mainly true in previously healthy children whose airways are normal [6, 7, 12]. An important question this study tried to answer is whether nasopharyngeal microbiome composition relates to local viral load and exerts an influence on mucosal immune responses. Viral load and mucosal immune responses are thought to directly impact disease severity, and therefore, it is difficult to disentangle these ...
Bronchiolitis is a pathological description that has come to be used as a clinical diagnosis. It is primarily a disease of the small airways, causing these to be obstructed by inflammatory exudate. More than 70% of cases are caused by respiratory syncytial virus, which in temperate climates results in a sharp winter epidemic lasting two to five months.1 Bronchiolitis is a disease of infancy, characterised by cough, fever, tachypnoea, diffuse crackles, hyperinflation, and chest retraction. Wheezes are a less constant feature,1 2 3 and bronchiolitis should be distinguishable clinically from infantile asthma by the presence of widespread crackles. Unfortunately, the diagnostic criteria for bronchiolitis have varied considerably, with consequent blurring of the distinction between it and asthma.4. Over 95% of infants have been infected with respiratory syncytial virus by the end of their second winter; 40% of the infections in infancy affect the lower respiratory tract,1 2 3 4 5 although only about ...
Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction was used to detect segments of the M (matrix), N (nucleoprotein), and F (fusion) genes of human metapneumovirus in bronchoalveolar fluid from 30 infants with severe respiratory syncytial virus bronchiolitis. Seventy percent of them were coinfected with metapneumovirus. Such coinfection might be a factor influencing the severity of bronchiolitis.
|jats:p|In 1995, the European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID) carried out a survey of its members to assess the variation in management of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) bronchiolitis. The aim of the current study was to carry out a similar survey 20 years later to assess how the management had changed. An electronic, structured, English language survey, based on the United Kingdom National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) bronchiolitis draft guideline, was sent to ESPID members in March 2015. Questions asked included information on treatment practices of infants with bronchiolitis and doctor demographics. We received responses from 135 doctors (14% of the ESPID members) who worked in 115 hospitals. 56% of the doctors used a written guideline to manage bronchiolitic infants. All doctors stated that they isolated individually or in cohorts all hospitalised bronchiolitis infants. The level of oxygen saturation suggested as an indication to administer supplemental
Background Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a major cause of viral bronchiolitis in infants worldwide, and environmental, viral and host factors are all of importance for disease susceptibility and severity. To study the systemic host response to this disease we used the microarray technology to measure mRNA gene expression levels in whole blood of five male infants hospitalised with acute RSV, subtype B, bronchiolitis versus five one year old male controls exposed to RSV during infancy without bronchiolitis. The gene expression levels were further evaluated in a new experiment using quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (QRT-PCR) both in the five infants selected for microarray and in 13 other infants hospitalised with the same disease. Results Among the 30 genes most differentially expressed by microarray nearly 50% were involved in immunological processes. We found the highly upregulated interferon, alpha-inducible protein 27 (IFI27) and the highly downregulated gene ...
In RSV bronchiolitis, neutrophils, account for ,80% of cells recovered from airways in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid. We investigated neutrophil activation and toll-like receptor (TLR) expression in the blood and lungs of infants with severe RSV bronchiolitis.. Methods: BAL and (blood) samples were collected from 24 (16) preterm and 23 (15) term infants, ventilated with RSV bronchiolitis, and 12 (8) control infants. We measured protein and mRNA expression of CD11b, myeloperoxidase (MPO) and TLR 2,4,7,8,9 in neutrophils.. Results: Blood neutrophils had more CD11b in preterm and term bronchiolitic infants, than control infants (P,0.025) but similar amounts of MPO. BAL neutrophils from bronchiolitic infants had increased amounts of CD11b and MPO than blood neutrophils and BAL neutrophils from controls (P,0.01). Blood neutrophils from term RSV infants had less total TLR4 protein than preterm RSV infants (P=0.005) and both had less than controls (P,0.04). Total TLR4 for each group was greater in ...

Bronchiolitis is a viral-induced lower respiratory tract infection that occurs predominantly in children < 2 years of age, particularly infants. Many viruses have been proven or attributed to cause bronchiolitis, including and most commonly the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and rhinovirus. RSV is responsible for more severe disease and complications (including hospitalisation) in bronchiolitis patients. Whereas bronchiolitis is exclusively due to respiratory viral infections, with little evidence of bacterial co-infection, the former could nevertheless predispose to superimposed bacterial infections. Although data support an interaction between RSV and pneumococcal superimposed infections, it should be noted that this specifically refers to children who are hospitalised with RSV-associated pneumonia, and not to children with bronchiolitis or milder outpatient RSV-associated illness. As such, empiric antibiotic treatment against pneumococcus in children with RSV-associated pneumonia is only
Bronchiolitis is the most common acute infection of the airways and lungs during the first years of life. It is caused by viruses, the most common being respiratory syncytial virus. The illness starts similar to a cold, with symptoms such as a runny nose, mild fever and cough. It later leads to fast, troubled and often noisy breathing (for example, wheezing). While the disease is often mild for most healthy babies and young children, it is a major cause of clinical illness and financial health burden worldwide. Hospitalisations have risen in high-income countries, there is substantial healthcare use and bronchiolitis may be linked with preschool wheezing disorders and the child later developing asthma.. There is variation in how physicians manage bronchiolitis, reflecting the absence of clear scientific evidence for any treatment approach. Anti-inflammatory drugs like glucocorticoids (for example, prednisolone or dexamethasone) have been used based on apparent similarities between bronchiolitis ...
Aim: To investigate the relationship between the polymorphism of CA microsatellite(rs3138557) in IFNgamma gene and theseverity to respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection.. Methods: The IFNgamma CA microsatellite was tested in 218 RSV bronchiolitis inpatients and 303 healthy children as control. The severity of RSV bronchiolitis was evaluated by standardized respiratory scoring system. Results: (1) The frequencies of CA12+/CA12+, CA12+/CA12- and CA12-/CA12- in the RSV bronchiolitis group were11%, 55.05% and35.95% respectively. The frequencies in the control group were19.47%, 52.81% and 27.72% respectively. The gene polymorphism of IFN gamma CA repeats between both groups was statistically different (P = 0.024).. (2) The clinical respiratory scores of RSV bronchiolitis cases with CA12+/CA12+, CA12+/CA12- were 2.84 plusmn 0.41; 2.95plusmn0.44 respectively. These scores were lower than those with CA12-/CA12- (3.10plusmn0.36).(P=0.004; P=0.027).. Conclusion: The polymorphism of IFN gamma CA ...
Bronchiolitis is an acute lower respiratory tract disease caused by a viral infection. It affects infants and often requires hospitalization. Treatment is based on supportive care1. Although all current guidelines do not recommend chest physiotherapy in the treatment of bronchiolitis, its role is still controversial and challenging 1,2. Two different respiratory physiotherapy techniques are known in the treatment of bronchiolitis: conventional Chest Physiotherapy (cCPT), which includes vibration, percussion, postural drainage and forced expiratory maneuvers, and new Chest Physiotherapy (nCPT), based on prolonged slow expiration techniques2. While most studies have demonstrated ineffectiveness and risk of associated adverse events for cCPT1, nCPT has showed some benefits improving bronchial airway obstruction and Wang score in hospitalized infants with bronchiolitis3. Nevertheless, lack of homogeneity of the studies in literature makes the interpretation of the results less reliable. Although ...

Patients baseline characteristics were similar between the two periods. P2 is associated with a significant decrease in the length of ventilation (LOV) (4.1 ± 3.5 versus 6.9 ± 4.6 days, p , 0.001), PICU length of stay (LOS) (6.2 ± 4.6 versus 9.7 ± 5.5 days, p , 0.001) and hospital LOS. nCPAP was independently associated with a shorter duration of ventilatory support than MV (hazard ratio 1.8, 95 % CI 1.5-2.2, p , 0.001). nCPAP was also associated with a significant decrease in ventilation-associated complications, and less invasive management. The mean cost of acute viral bronchiolitis-related PICU hospitalizations was significantly decreased, from 17,451 to 11,205 € (p , 0.001). Implementation of nCPAP led to a reduction of the total annual cost of acute viral bronchiolitis hospitalizations of 715,000 €.. ...

This dreaded inflammation is none other than bronchiolitis, an acute disease that affects the bronchioles, that is to say, the small airways located within the pulmonary lobules. While the disease is usually due to a respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), of which the mode of transmission is usually quite fast. However, keep in mind that other viruses may also be responsible for bronchiolitis.. Contrary to what one might think, bronchiolitis cannot be treated with drugs traditionally prescribed in cases of bronchitis since, in this case, they have no effect on the disease. Thus, the only standard treatment that one can resort to is chest physiotherapy, a therapeutic treatment that can effectively unclog congested airways, thanks to a series of very specific chest massages. However, it is useful to know that it is strongly recommended to resort to physical therapy when the infection is still in its early stages. Neglecting this important step increases the risk of even more important bronchial ...
We demonstrate, for the first time to the best of our knowledge, an association between disease severity in children hospitalised with viral bronchiolitis and 1) IL-15 mRNA expression in PBMCs and 2) IL-15 concentration in serum. We identified the source of IL-15 in PBMCs as a subpopulation of DCs that are expanded in viral bronchiolitis, and also report a correlation between IL-15 levels and intracellular expression of antiapoptotic proteins Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL in lymphocytes of children with bronchiolitis. We identified a distinct pattern of NK cell miRNA expression in bronchiolitis and differential expression of a selection of their putative mRNA targets, among them genes for signalling molecules in the IL-15 pathway.. Children with viral bronchiolitis in our cohort demonstrated upregulation of IL-15 mRNA expression in PBMCs and increased serum levels of IL-15. This is consistent with an appropriate innate immune response to a viral infection, as it promotes activation and recruitment of NK ...
In the metropolitan area of Barcelona, as well as in other Spanish cities, air quality is getting worse by the year. At the same time, projections of temperature and rainfall alert us to future increases in both parameters.1 In this context, studies assessing the influence of climate and air pollution in children, particularly in relation to respiratory diseases, are necessary. A recent systematic review confirmed the association between exposure to air pollutants (particulate matter with diameters ,2.5μm [PM2.5] and ,10μm [PM10], nitrogen dioxide [NO2] and sulfur dioxide [SO2]) and the risk of hospital admission due to bronchiolitis.2 A study conducted in primary health care centres in Madrid concluded that NO2 levels (particularly those exceeding 40μg/m3) were associated with increases in paediatric respiratory disease.3 To our knowledge, no similar studies have been done in Barcelona.. As a pilot study, we analysed data for 391 patients from the metropolitan area of Barcelona admitted with ...

Humidified low-flow oxygen (0.5 - 3 litres/minute) applied by nasal prongs is effective for hypoxic children. Nasal prongs give a maximum inspired oxygen of 28 - 35% except in small infants, when higher oxygen concentrations may be obtained. Headbox oxygen is an alternative that is well tolerated by young infants. It requires no humidification, but high flow and a mixing device are needed to ensure that the correct oxygen concentration is delivered. However, there is wastage of oxygen and the delivered oxygen concentration (FiO2) is unpredictable. Facemask oxygen delivers between 28% and 65% oxygen at a flow rate of 6 - 10 l/min. In severely hypoxic infants who are not ventilated, oxygen should be administered using a polymask, which enables FiO2 concentrations of 60 - 80% to be achieved. Oxygen should be weaned when the child improves clinically and with resolution of hypoxia. Rapid short-acting bronchodilator therapy has shown modest benefits in the treatment of bronchiolitis.20 ...
The pathological changes are described in 22 children with proven or suspected virus infection of the lower respiratory tract. Two main patterns of disease were found: acute bronchiolitis and interstitial pneumonia. Particular viruses were not specifically associated with particular histological changes. The prime importance of the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) as a cause of disease and death in young infants is again shown. Structural lesions and clinical dysfunction correlate fairly well; in acute bronchiolitis the main lesion is epithelial necrosis when a dense plug is formed in the bronchiolar lumen leading to trapping air and other mechanical interference with ventilation: in interstitial pneumonia there is widespread inflammation and necrosis of lung parenchyma, and severe lesions of the bronchial and bronchiolar mucosa as well. The implications of these structural changes for clinical management are discussed. The possibility of a hypersensitivity reaction in the cot death syndrome is ...

The influence of age and maternal antibodies on the antibody responses to human respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV) glycoproteins in very young children has been a matter of controversy. Both, immaturity of the immune system at very early age and suppression of the host immune response by high level of maternal antibodies have been claimed to limit the host antibody response to virus infection and to jeopardize the use of hRSV vaccines under development in that age group. Hence, the antibody responses to the two major hRSV glycoproteins (F and G) were evaluated in children younger than 2 years, hospitalized with laboratory confirmed hRSV bronchiolitis ...
Bronchiolitis is an acute inflammatory disease of the lower respiratory tract that is characterized by acute inflammation, edema, and necrosis of epithelial cells lining small airways, increased mucous production, and bronchospasm.1 The term describes a clinical syndrome that occurs in infancy and is characterized by rapid respiration, chest retractions, wheezing, and, frequently, hypoxia. It is a disease that occurs almost exclusively in children younger than 2 years. It is the leading cause of hospitalization in infancy in the United States, accounting for 3% of all hospitalizations. This results in nearly 150,000 hospital admissions per year with an associated annual cost over $500 million.2 There is evidence that hospitalization rates are increasing as well. It has a seasonal pattern, being most common in the winter and spring.3 ...

RESPIRATORY INFECTIONSaltier saline cuts hospital admissionsChildren with bronchiolitis who are treated with an inhaled saline solution with a much higher salt content than typical saline are less likely to be admitted to the hospital than those given regular inhaled saline, according to a study at UCSF Benioff Childrens Hospital Oakland and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. In the emergency room, the illness is usually treated with an inhaled saline solution, but doctors have been studying the use of hypertonic saline solution, which is roughly equal to the salt content of the ocean. The new study, which included about 400 patients in Oakland and Los Angeles, found that among children given the hypertonic saline in the emergency room, 29 percent were hospitalized, compared to 43 percent of children who received the regular saline.

We presented a general analytical approach to investigate whether spatial variation in medium-term changes in air pollution were associated with changes in the occurrence of a health outcome. This approach is particularly useful for outcomes which are counts (eg, hospital admissions or deaths), since the difference between counts may be negative and therefore not Poisson distributed. By comparison, changes over time in normally distributed outcomes can be modelled in a relatively straightforward fashion as the difference between the outcome at two points in time.. In the main analysis, wards with larger decreases in NOx concentration had, on average, larger decreases (or smaller increases) in admissions for heart failure, respiratory disease and bronchiolitis after adjusting for potential confounders. However, there was substantial spatial dependence in the data, and only the adjusted association for bronchiolitis remained after accounting for the dependence. That we observed a significant ...
Most children with bronchiolitis have mild symptoms and recover within 2 to 3 weeks, but its important to look out for signs of more serious problems, such as breathing difficulties.. Early symptoms of bronchiolitis tend to appear within a few days of becoming infected. Theyre usually similar to those of a common cold, such as a blocked or runny nose, a cough, and a slightly high temperature (fever).. The symptoms usually get worse during the next few days before gradually improving. During this time, your child may develop some of the following symptoms:. ...

It has been suggested that the estimated date of confinement (EDC) may be used to predict the length of hospital stay for sick newborns. We have found this method unreliable and designed the following study to develop a mathematical model to predict length of stay (LOS). We reviewed the records of 393 neonates. Statistical analysis was performed using multiple linear regression. The factors that reached statistical significance were birth weight (BW), gestational age (GA), and a combined respiratory score (RES). The RES was developed to quantify the degree of initial respiratory illness. Through this model we developed the following formula: log(e) (LOS) = 4.395-0.023 (GA) -0.00054(BW) + 0.0274 (RES). The R value is 0.78. The model predicts an LOS +/- 10 days in 73% of cases. Overall, this model yields a 29% improvement in predictability of LOS compared with a model which used EDC only. This formula may provide useful information for parents and caregivers of hospitalized neonates ...

Boy we have gone through a rough few months! I dont want to go into too much detail, but it has been hard. So just when I get healed up from my c-section, I had to get my gallbladder removed a few weeks ago. That was brutal! Thank goodness my Grandma came up and stayed with us. She is amazing! She took care of the kiddos for me and made dinner and cleaned and everything! I dont know what I would have done if she hadnt been there. Then Quincy came down with a really high fever and with her history we have to get her treated right away. Two instacare visits and a night spent in the ER, a fever of 104.9 at one point, and two medication changes, they finally got her better. The worst part was that Deacon ended up getting very sick and had to be put in the hospital. He had viral bronchiolitis and had to be hooked up to all these monitors and machines and IVs and get his lungs suctioned out and be given medications so that he could breathe. It was so sad! They even had to take blood from out of his ...
Section 2 Mum says that Georges cough seems to be worse at night but has not responded to over the counter treatments. She reports that he has always had a weak chest since a hospital admission for bronchiolitis as a baby. Mum says George is smaller than his classmates, which she puts down to him being a faddy eater. One of his brothers has been diagnosed as having asthma and mum confesses that she has tried George on both his blue reliever and corticosteroid inhalers with good effect on his symptoms. She was not worried about doing this as they also share their eczema creams. You suspect that George may be atopic based on this information. You decide to try to elicit a bit more information to help confirm or refute your suspicions ...
