Randomised controlled trial of budesonide for the prevention of post-bronchiolitis wheezing. (1/187)

BACKGROUND: Previous studies suggest that recurrent episodes of coughing and wheezing occur in up to 75% of infants after acute viral bronchiolitis. AIM: To assess the efficacy of budesonide given by means of a metered dose inhaler, spacer, and face mask in reducing the incidence of coughing and wheezing episodes up to 12 months after acute viral bronchiolitis. METHODS: Children under the age of 12 months admitted to hospital with acute viral bronchiolitis were randomised to receive either budesonide or placebo (200 microg or one puff twice daily) for the next eight weeks. Parents kept a diary card record of all episodes of coughing and wheezing over the next 12 months. RESULTS: Full follow up data were collected for 49 infants. There were no significant differences between the two study groups for the number of infants with symptom episodes up to six months after hospital discharge. At 12 months, 21 infants in the budesonide group had symptom episodes compared with 12 of 24 in the placebo group. The median number of symptom episodes was 2 (range, 0-13) in those who received budesonide and 1 (range, 0-11) in those who received placebo. Because there is no pharmacological explanation for these results, they are likely to be caused by a type 1 error, possibly exacerbated by there being more boys in the treatment group. CONCLUSION: Routine administration of budesonide by means of a metered dose inhaler, spacer, and face mask system immediately after acute viral bronchiolitis cannot be recommended.  (+info)

Association of fever and severe clinical course in bronchiolitis. (2/187)

Little attention has been given to the relation between fever and the severity of bronchiolitis. Therefore, the relation between fever and the clinical course of 90 infants (59 boys, 31 girls) hospitalised during one season with bronchiolitis was studied prospectively. Fever (defined as a single recording > 38.0 degrees C or two successive recording > 37.8 degrees C) was present in 28 infants. These infants were older (mean age, 5.3 v 4.0 months), had a longer mean hospital stay (4.2 v 2.7 days), and a more severe clinical course (71.0% v 29.0%) than those infants without fever. Radiological abnormalities (collapse/consolidation) were found in 60. 7% of the febrile group compared with 14.8% of the afebrile infants. These results suggest that monitoring of body temperature is important in bronchiolitis and that fever is likely to be associated with a more severe clinical course and radiological abnormalities.  (+info)

IL-8 and neutrophil elastase levels in the respiratory tract of infants with RSV bronchiolitis. (3/187)

The aim of this study was to determine whether interleukin (IL)-8 is released within the upper respiratory tract of infants during respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) bronchiolitis and whether the large number of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) present in the respiratory tract of these infants are contributing to the inflammation through release of inflammatory mediators. Twenty-seven infants with acute bronchiolitis were recruited during one winter epidemic and 20 infant control subjects were recruited from a cohort participating in a community-based vaccine study. Samples of airways fluid were obtained using nasal lavage. The lavage fluid was spun to remove the cells, and the supernatant was stored at -70 degrees C. The supernatants were subsequently assayed for the presence of IL-8, total human neutrophil elastase (HNE) and neutrophil elastase activity. In the children with bronchiolitis compared with control infants, elevated levels of IL-8 (median (range) 1.53 (0-153) versus 0 (0-5.6) ng x mL(-1)) HNE (136 (32-694) versus 14 (0-516) ng x mL(-1)) and elastase activity (4 (1-220) versus 1 (0-339) mU x mL(-1)) were found. These results indicate that interleukin-8 is released in the upper respiratory tract in response to respiratory syncytial virus infection and suggest that polymorphonuclear neutrophil products are playing an important role in the inflammatory response to respiratory syncytial virus infection in infants with acute bronchiolitis. This contrasts with the predominantly eosinophilic response evident in atopic upper and lower respiratory tract disease.  (+info)

Peripheral blood cytokine responses and disease severity in respiratory syncytial virus bronchiolitis. (4/187)

The role of cellular immunity in disease severity in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) bronchiolitis is largely unknown. This study investigated the association between disease severity and systemic cytokine responses in hospitalized ventilated and nonventilated RSV bronchiolitis patients. In whole blood cultures stimulated with phytohaemagglutinin (PHA), lymphoproliferative responses and interferon (IFN)-gamma and interleukin (IL)-4 production during acute illness were measured. In addition, plasma cytokines were measured. Measurements were repeated in the convalescent phase, 3-4 weeks after admission. Fifty patients were included. The median age in ventilaled patients was significantly lower than in nonventilated patients (1 versus 4 months, p<0.05). In comparison with nonventilated patients, the ventilated patients had significantly lower lymphoproliferative responses and a lower production of IFN-gamma and IL-4. In fact, IFN-gamma and IL-4 production in ventilated patients was almost completely undetectable. Plasma IL-8 levels in ventilated patients were significantly higher than in nonventilated patients. In the convalescent phase, lymphoproliferative and cytokine responses as well as plasma IL-8 levels were normal in both patient groups. Since RSV bronchiolitis is associated with the subsequent development of asthma, the possible skewing of the T-helper (Th1/Th2) cytokine balance was investigated. This was found neither in the acute nor in the convalescent phase. In conclusion, the data indicate that depressed lymphocyte function and elevated plasma interleukin-8 levels are markers of severe disease. It is suggested that age and maturation related immune mechanisms could explain the occurrence of severe respiratory syncytial virus bronchiolitis requiring mechanical ventilation in young infants.  (+info)

Effects of respiratory syncytial virus persistence on airway responsiveness and inflammation in guinea-pigs. (5/187)

Recurrent wheezing and asthma often develop after acute respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) bronchiolitis, but the mechanisms of these sequelae are poorly understood. Using a guinea-pig model of human RSV lung infection, the effects of long-term viral persistence on three hallmarks of asthma: nonspecific airway responsiveness, airway inflammation and airway remodelling were examined. Guinea-pigs were studied 100 days after intranasal instillation of either human RSV or uninfected vehicle, using: 1) acetylcholine challenge to test for airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR); 2) lung histology to quantify the numbers of airway eosinophils and metachromatic cells (mast cells/basophils); 3) airway morphometry of the areas of the airway subepithelial connective tissue, smooth muscle and adventitia, to test for airway remodelling; and 4) immunohistochemistry to identify lung cells containing RSV antigens. The RSV-inoculated group had significantly elevated AHR and airway eosinophils compared to uninfected control animals (p<0.05). There were no significant differences between the two groups in terms of numbers of airway metachromatic cells, or the areas of subepithelial connective tissue, smooth muscle or adventitia. Viral proteins were identified by immunohistochemistry within several types of lung cells. In conclusion, long-term persistence of respiratory syncytial virus in the guinea-pig lung is associated with airway hyperresponsiveness and airway eosinophilia, and these changes may be pertinent to the pathogenesis of postbronchiolitis wheezing and asthma in children.  (+info)

Randomised placebo controlled trial of nebulised corticosteroids in acute respiratory syncytial viral bronchiolitis. (6/187)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate short and long term effects of giving nebulised budesonide early in respiratory syncytial viral (RSV) bronchiolitis. DESIGN: A multicentre randomised double blind placebo controlled trial. SUBJECTS: Infants admitted to hospital with their first episode of RSV positive bronchiolitis. INTERVENTION: Randomisation to receive either 1 mg of nebulised budesonide (Bud) or placebo (Pla) twice daily from admission until 2 weeks after discharge. Follow up was for 12 months. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Duration of hospital admission, time taken to become symptom free, re-admission rates, general practitioner consultation rates, and use of anti-wheeze medication during follow up. RESULTS: 161 infants were studied. Both arms were similar with respect to initial clinical severity, age, sex, socioeconomic class, and tobacco exposure. Median time from first nebulisation to discharge: Bud and Pla, 2 days. Median number of days for 50% of infants to be symptom free for 48 hours: Bud, 10 days; Pla, 12 days. Respiratory re-admission rates in the 12 month follow up: Bud, 16%; Pla, 18%; median difference (95% confidence interval (CI)), -2 (-14 to 10). Median respiratory related general practitioner attendances: Bud, 4.0; Pla, 4.5; median difference (95% CI), -1 (-2 to 0). Percentage of infants receiving at least one prescription for anti-wheeze medication during follow up, corticosteroids: Bud, 50%; Pla, 60%; difference (95% CI), -10 (-26 to 6); bronchodilators: Bud, 60%; Pla, 67%; difference (95% CI), -7 (-22 to 8). CONCLUSIONS: There are no short or long term clinical benefits from the administration of nebulised corticosteroids in the acute phase of RSV bronchiolitis.  (+info)

No objective benefit from steroids inhaled via a spacer in infants recovering from bronchiolitis. (7/187)

A double-blind randomized placebo-controlled trial was conducted to investigate the efficacy of 3 months' inhaled steroids delivered via a spacer device with face mask attachment to infants recovering from bronchiolitis. Forty-eight previously healthy infants recovering from their first documented episode of acute bronchiolitis were randomized to receive 150 microg fluticasone propionate (FP) b.i.d. or placebo delivered via the Babyhaler spacer. Longitudinal assessments were performed on seven occasions over 1 yr based on symptom diaries and health records, clinical examinations, overnight cough recordings and oxygen saturation readings. Lung function was measured 6 months after hospital discharge. Forty-three infants completed the trial (FP 21, placebo 22). There were no significant differences in the three objective end-points measured, recorded night cough, oxygen saturation and lung function test results. Symptom scores were low in both the FP and placebo groups with the absence of (0) or mild (1) symptoms > or =90% of the trial days. No statistical differences in symptom frequency, use of rescue respiratory medications or hospital admissions between treatment groups were found throughout the trial or follow-up periods. In conclusion, the use of inhaled fluticasone propionate in infants recovering from acute bronchiolitis cannot be recommended.  (+info)

The diagnostic and therapeutic approach to acute bronchiolitis in hospitalized children in Israel: a nationwide survey. (8/187)

BACKGROUND: Bronchiolitis caused by respiratory syncytial virus is one of the major causes of hospitalization in young children, especially during the winter. Recent evidence has shown that pharmacological treatment, especially nebulized epinephrine, in addition to the traditional supportive treatment, can alleviate symptoms and shorten hospitalization, but this approach is not yet widespread. OBJECTIVES: To determine whether the management of bronchiolitis in Israel is moving toward a stronger emphasis on pharmacological care. METHODS: A questionnaire on the diagnosis and management of bronchiolitis was completed by 27 heads of pediatric departments throughout Israel. The questionnaire dealt with the frequency of usage of diagnostic and selected therapeutic procedures. RESULTS: Chest X-ray and arterial blood gases are commonly used as a diagnostic aid in more than 75% of the departments, and antibiotics are prescribed routinely in 24%. Corticosteroids are still in use: 48% use systemic steroids, and 19% nebulized steroids. Nebulized epinephrine is used in 22% of the departments, while nebulized beta-agonists are used frequently in two-thirds of the departments. CONCLUSIONS: Despite convincing data that beta-agonists and steroids have no positive effect on the outcome of bronchiolitis on the one hand, and that nebulized epinephrine has advantages in children on the other, we found significant use of the former two agents and sparse use of the latter. Greater awareness is needed among pediatricians, and measures should be introduced to incorporate the new recommendations, with further study of the effect of the old and new drugs on bronchiolitis.  (+info)

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.
Acute viral bronchiolitis constitutes the principal cause of acute lower respiratory tract infections in infants and children in Nord America. Every year 11% of infants younger than 1 year and 6% of those between 1 and 2 years are affected. Acute viral bronchiolitis is characterized by a first episode of respiratory distress associated to rhinorrhea, cough and fever, other symptoms such as vomiting, use of accessory intercostal muscles and irritability can be present. Mild symptoms presentation in bronchiolitis is very common, these patients do not require treatment or testing, only appropriate information on how to ameliorate respiratory symptoms and a well list of alarm signs for parents are frequently enough to send the patient home.. Increasing workload in the ED is a national worry after the last 20 years. Between October and April, this phenomena is seen each year due to cold and influenza season. From an economic perspective along with a lack in human resources, new strategies have to be ...
Acute viral bronchiolitis is the principal lower respiratory tract infection in infants worldwide, 10% of canadian infants are affected each year. It is characterized by a first episode of difficulty to breathe, preceded by symptoms of fever, rhinorrhea and cough. The only accepted treatment for bronchiolitis is nasal cleaning, hydration and oxygen administration. Multiple studies have documented variation in diagnostic testing, clinical scores used and different treatment modalities. This suggests a lack of consensus on the diagnosis, on criteria for hospitalization and on treatment. Nebulized 3% hypertonic saline solution has been proposed as a potential treatment for the reduction in the severity of respiratory symptoms and the rate of admission in bronchiolitis, it has never been studied alone and the effect on the rate of admission has been little studied.. We propose a randomized double blind multicenter clinical trial on infants 6 weeks to 12 months old with moderate or severe ...
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

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in AOE and NRF2 genes have been associated with various lung disorders. To test whether specific NRF2 and/or AOE gene SNPs in children with RSV lower respiratory tract infection were associated with disease severity, one hundred and forty one children ,24 month of age with bronchiolitis were assessed for seven AOE and two NRF2 SNPs, and data were correlated with disease severity, which was determined by need of oxygen ...
BACKGROUND: Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the most important pathogen causing severe lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) in infants. Epidemiologic and basic studies suggest that vitamin D may protect against RSV LRTI. OBJECTIVE: To determine the association between plasma vitamin D concentrations at birth and the subsequent risk of RSV LRTI. DESIGN: A prospective birth cohort study was performed in healthy term neonates. Concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) in cord blood plasma were related to RSV LRTI in the first year of life, defined as parent-reported LRTI symptoms in a daily log and simultaneous presence of RSV RNA in a nose-throat specimen. RESULTS: The study population included 156 neonates. Eighteen (12%) developed RSV LRTI. The mean plasma 25-OHD concentration was 82 nmol/L. Overall, 27% of neonates had 25-OHD concentrations < 50 nmol/L, 27% had 50-74 nmol/L and only 46% had 25-OHD 75 nmol/L. Cord blood 25-OHD concentrations were strongly associated with ...
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 similarly 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. Hospitalizations 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. Bronchodilators are drugs that are often used for asthma attacks to relax the muscles in the airways so that breathing is easier. Epinephrine is one type ...
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 ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 €.. ...

Jürgen Schwarzes group studies immune mechanisms of viral bronchiolitis and the role of virus induced immune modulation in allergy and asthma focusing on the innate/adaptive immune interface in the lung.
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 ...
Since Ive been on here... My little chunk is a solid 14pounds :-) and she was born a tiny 5.12! But on a more serious note she has bronchiolitis and does breathing treatment every four hours. Now my question is, for you ladies who have/had kids who had rsv/bronchiolitis, how long did it take baby to get over it?! Lo sounds terrible!
It may be possible for a child with a high risk of developing severe bronchiolitis to have monthly antibody injections during the winter (November to March). The injections may help to limit the severity of the condition if the child becomes infected. Children who may be considered to be at high risk include those:. ...
BACKGROUND: Airway oedema (swelling) and mucus plugging are the principal pathological features in infants with acute viral bronchiolitis. Nebulised hypertonic saline solution (≥ 3%) may reduce these pathological changes and decrease airway obstruction. This is an update of a review first published in 2008, and previously updated in 2010 and 2013. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of nebulised hypertonic (≥ 3%) saline solution in infants with acute bronchiolitis. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), MEDLINE, MEDLINE Epub Ahead of Print, In-Process & Other Non-Indexed Citations, Ovid MEDLINE Daily, Embase, CINAHL, LILACS, and Web of Science on 11 August 2017. We also searched the World Health Organization International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (WHO ICTRP) and ClinicalTrials.gov on 8 April 2017. SELECTION CRITERIA: We included randomised controlled trials and quasi-randomised controlled trials using nebulised hypertonic saline alone ...
Aim: Infants with viral bronchiolitis are often hospitalised with a proportion requiring respiratory support. The aim of this review was to examine the use of nasal prong continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) as a management strategy for infants with a diagnosis of bronchiolitis, who required stabilisation and transport to a tertiary centre.. Method: A retrospective audit of infants with bronchiolitis requiring CPAP during transport between January 2003 and June 2007.. Results: Nasal CPAP was initiated in 54 infants with 51 of these (34 ex-preterm, 17 term) subsequently continuing on CPAP during retrieval. Mean CPAP pressure was 7 cmH2O. Oxygenation improved between stabilisation and the end of retrieval (P , 0.01). During retrieval, there was no significant increase in transcutaneous CO2, no infant required endotracheal ventilation and no adverse events were noted. Five infants were intubated within the first 24 h of admission at the receiving hospital.. Conclusion: This review ...
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 ...
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 ...
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
During the 2000-2001 RSV season, we approved 212 requests for palivizumab. 12 of these members, 5.7 percent, required hospitalization for proven RSV lower respiratory tract disease, either RSV bronchiolitis (ICD-9 code 466.11) or RSV pneumonia (ICD-9 code 480.1). The average length of stay was 4.6 days. These results are consistent with the results of the original randomized clinical trial of palivizumab. In that study, known as the Impact-RSV trial, there was a 55-percent overall reduction in RSV-related hospitalizations (11 percent compared to 5 percent in placebo vs. palivizumab recipients).2. Nevertheless, the big question is: What about the requests that were denied? What about the patients who were between 32 and 35 weeks gestation whose only risk factors were the "additional risk factors" listed in the accompanying table? In the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Infectious Diseases and Committee on Fetus and the Newborn article on RSV infections and indications for the use of ...
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.

The findings of this prospective study contribute to the debate that is ongoing about RSV/non-RSV bronchiolitis at infancy as an asthma predictive factor. This study contributes new data to the debate on bronchiolitis admissions at age ,6 months. However, the reported rate of asthma in the follow-up group was notably lower than what has been reported in previous research. Future research should focus on investigating further the mechanisms of viral etiology in bronchiolitis and whether it can contribute to early-life risk factors for developing asthma. ...

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 ...

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 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.)​ ...

Bronchiolitis is caused when a virus infects small tubes in the lungs. Learn how to spot the symptoms of bronchiolitis, which are similar to those of common colds, to prevent and treat it.
Bronchiolitis is defined as an acute inflammation of bronchioles in the lower respiratory tract that results in airway obstruction with accompanying progressive dyspnea and poor feeding. This condition is most commonly observed in children under 2 years of age, with a peak age between 2 and 6 months.
This survey study of families of children younger than 2 years discharged after hospitalization for bronchiolitis assesses the usefulness of routine outpatient
Bronchitis is inflammation of the large airways. Pneumonia is inflammation of the lung tissue. Bronchiolitis is inflammation of the smaller airways connecting the two.
When compared to children with each CC of TLR4 polymorphism or TT of CD14 polymorphism or GG of IL13 polymorphism and no past history of bronchiolitis, children with CT or TT of TLR4 polymorphism and past history of bronchiolitis had 4.23 and 5.34 times higher risk to develop asthma, respectively; children with TT of CD14 polymorphism and past history of bronchiolitis had 3.57 and 7.22 times higher risk for asthma, respectively; children with GA or AA of IL-13 polymorphism and past history of bronchiolitis had 3.21 and 4.13 times higher risk for asthma, respectively. ...
There may be a link between bronchiolitis and developing respiratory conditions such as asthma in later life. However, the link isnt fully understood. Its not clear whether having bronchiolitis as an infant increases your risk of developing asthma later in life, or whether there are environmental or genetic (inherited) factors that cause both bronchiolitis and asthma. If your child has repeated bouts of bronchiolitis, their risk of developing asthma later in life may be increased. ...
Bronchiolitis is an acute inflammatory injury of the bronchioles that is usually caused by a viral infection. Although it may occur in persons of any age, severe symptoms are usually only evident in young infants; the larger airways of older children and adults better accommodate mucosal edema.
Bronchiolitis typically affects infants and children under 2 years old[1] but it can also affect people of any age. It also has a seasonal predilection, with more infections during the winter.[1]

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Background. Treating infant acute bronchiolitis is supportive, with no significant benefit by inhaled racemic adrenaline (iRA) over saline inhalations. It is unclear if treatment effect may differ in patients who develop atopic eczema (AE) or allergic sensitization (AS). We aimed to investigate if treatment effect of iRA in moderate to severe bronchiolitis in infancy was modified by atopic disease development of recurrent bronchial obstruction or atopic disease up to two years of age.. Methods. 294 of 404 children participating in a randomized controlled trial comparing the effect (length of hospital stay (LOS)) of iRA with inhaled saline were reinvestigated 18 months later including a structured, physician-led parenteral interview, clinical examination and a skin prick test (SPT) for 17 allergens. Analyses were performed with robust regression and stratified by atopic disease in case of significant interaction.. Results. Later AS and/or AE (n=77) interacted significantly (p=0.02) with LOS for ...
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 ...

recommended by current clinical practice guidelines. Scholars disagree about the use of corticosteroids and common scientific belief is that they are useless and may be even harmful in children with bronchiolitis. Now, a recent meta-analysis published in the British Medical Journal has found evidence that inhaled adrenaline and systemic corticosteroids may indeed have a role in the treatment of bronchiolitis. The study has been criticized by many. One critic say the study is "flawed" and he "read with disappointment the use of a Cochrane review to promote ...
You can help prevent the spread of bronchiolitis. Wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand cleaner before and after touching your child. While your child has symptoms, keep him or her away from other children. Your child may also need a palivizumab shot. During RSV season, these shots are recommended for high-risk babies. High-risk babies include those born early or those with lung, heart, or immune system diseases. Talk with your childs healthcare provider about whether the shot is right for your child. ...

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:. ...

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection is ubiquitous with almost all infants having been infected by 2 years of age and lifelong repeated infections common. It is the second largest cause of mortality, after malaria, in infants outside the neonatal period and causes up to 200,000 deaths per year worldwide. RSV results in clinical syndromes that include upper respiratory tract infections, otitis media, bronchiolitis (up to 80% of cases) and lower respiratory tract disease including pneumonia and exacerbations of asthma or viral-induced wheeze. For the purposes of this review we will focus on RSV bronchiolitis in infants in whom the greatest disease burden lies. For infants requiring hospital admission, the identification of the causative respiratory virus is used to direct cohorting or isolation and infection control procedures to minimize nosocomial transmission. Nosocomial RSV infections are associated with poorer clinical outcomes, including increased mortality, the need for mechanical
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a contagious viral disease that is the most common cause of bronchiolitis (inflammation of the small airways in the lung) and pneumonia in children under one year of age in the United States. Almost all children will have had an RSV infection by their second birthday. Of the infants and children exposed to RSV for the first time, 25 to 40 percent of them have signs or symptoms of bronchiolitis or pneumonia. However, only 0.5 to 2 percent will actually require hospitalization. Most children that do require hospitalization are under six months of age.. Premature infants, children under two years of age who have congenital heart or chronic lung disease, or children with a weakened immune system are at highest risk for developing severe disease. People of any age can develop an infection from RSV. However, when infections occur later in life, it is less severe. Adults at high risk for developing severe RSV disease include the elderly, adults with chronic heart or ...

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 ...
The lungs of three infants, two with bronchiolitis and one with pneumonia, were examined by fluorescent antibody techniques for the distribution of respiratory syncytial (R.S.) virus, and also for the presence of human globulin. In bronchiolitis the lungs contained little virus, whereas in pneumonia virus was abundant and widespread; and, paradoxically, while in bronchiolitis human globulin had the same scanty distribution as virus it was absent in pneumonia. It is suggested that the essential process in bronchiolitis is a widespread type 1 allergic reaction dependent on a second encounter with R.S. virus antigen, whereas in R.S. virus pneumonia the mucosal necrosis and alveolar and interstitial inflammation are the result of direct virus damage to the lungs. The alternative explanation put forward is that the process may be a type 3 allergic reaction.. ...
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.

Home treatment to manage the symptoms of bronchiolitis is usually all that is needed. Have your child drink plenty of liquids to avoid dehydration. If your baby has a stuffy nose, use a suction bulbto remove mucus. Fever medicine (such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen) may help reduce fever discomfort. Do not give aspirin to anyone younger than 20 because of the risk of Reye syndrome, a serious illness. Over-the-counter cough and cold medicines are not recommended. Be safe with medicines. Read and follow all instructions on the label.. The doctor may suggest bronchodilatormedicine if your child has shown the tendency to have allergic reactions (atopy). In severe cases, your child may need to stay in the hospital or get extra oxygen.. ...
Implementation of a bronchiolitis guideline can reduce unnecessary resource utilization and reduce costs in a pediatric emergency department setting.
Bronchiolitis is an acute infectious disease of the lower respiratory tract that occurs primarily in young infants, most often in those aged 2-24 months. Seventy-five percent of cases of bronchiolitis occur in children younger than 1 year, and 95% in children younger than 2 years. Incidence peaks in those aged 2-8 months. Annual incidence is 11.4% in infants younger than 1 year and 6% in those aged 1-2 years. The illness accounts for 4500 deaths and 90,000 hospital admissions per year. Prevalence may be higher in urban areas [9].. Bronchiolitis is usually because of a viral infection of the small airways. Infection of bronchiolar respiratory and ciliated epithelial cells produces increased mucus secretion, cell death, and sloughing, followed by a peribronchiolar lymphocytic infiltrate and submucosal edema. The combination of debris and edema produces critical narrowing and obstruction of small airways. Decreased ventilation of portions of the lung causes ventilation perfusion mismatching, ...

All, I was always under the impression that RSV+ children have a low rate of SBI but still run the risk of UTI. A colleague of mine is quoting a recent EMRAP episode which discourages checking the UA in bronchiolitis. What is the deal with urine testing in patients with bronchiolitis? This came from two studies. • Kuppermann N et al. Risks for bacteremia and urinary tract infections in young febrile children with bronchiolitis. Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 1997 Dec;151(12):1207-14. PMID: 9412595. He found a 2% prevalence of urinary tract infection with concomitant RSV. • Levine DA et al. Risk of serious bacterial infection in young febrile infants with respiratory syncytial virus infections. Pediatrics. 2004 Jun;113(6):1728-34. PMID: 15173498. Found a similar rate. • However, this is similar to the baseline rate of culture-positive urine in asymptomatic children under the age of 3 years, randomly selected for testing. You dont need to check the urine in febrile children with bronchiolitis. ...
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 ...
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is associated with significant mortality rates amongst hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients, with less known about other immunocompromised patients. Ten-year retrospective cohort study of immunocompromised patients presenting with RSV disease documented at University Hospitals of Lausanne and Geneva. Severe RSV-related outcomes referred to RSV documented respiratory conditions requiring hospital admission, presenting as lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) or pneumonia. We used multivariable logistic regression to assess clinical and laboratory correlates of severe RSV disease. From 239 RSV-positive immunocompromised in and out-patients 175 were adults and 64 children of whom 111 (47.8%) presented with LRTI, which resulted in a 38% (89/239) admission rate to hospital. While immunocompromised children were more likely to be admitted to hospital compared to adults (75% vs 62.9%, p = 0.090), inpatients admitted to the intensive care unit (17/19) or
Chronic allograft dysfunction in form of bronchiolitis obliterans is the most important hurdle to improved longterm survival after clinical lung transplantation to date. Recently, it was observed that the progression of bronchiolitis obliterans in lung transplant recipients might be inhibited by macrolide antibiotics. The authors therefore tested whether macrolide therapy can attenuate fibrous obliteration of airways in an animal model of bronchiolitis obliterans. Rats with heterotopic tracheal allografts were treated intraperitoneally with clarithromycin and compared to untreated transplanted animals with respect to allograft histology and expression of selected cytokines. At day 21 after transplantation, the tracheal allografts of treated animals were free of fibrous material or partially occluded dependent of clarithromycin dosage. Untreated animals had completely obliterated allografts. In treated animals, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) was down-regulated early (5 days) and late (21 ...
Several broad categories of patients are most vulnerable to RSV infection. These include:. premature infants and all infants less than 1 year of age, children 2 years old with cardiac disease or chronic lung disease (for example, asthma, cystic fibrosis, etc.), those of any age with a compromised immune system, and those 65 years of age or older. Is respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) contagious? Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is contagious. In the United States, its the most common cause of inflammation of the small airways in the lungs (bronchiolitis) and of pneumonia in children under 1 year of age. It also is significant cause of respiratory illnesses in older adults. Nearly all children in the U.S. will have been infected by RSV by 2 years of age. RSV usually causes a mild respiratory infection, but it can occasionally cause more serious infections that require hospitalization from breathing compromise with bronchiolitis or pneumonia. RSV was discovered in 1956 (isolated from a chimpanzee ...

RSV is the leading viral cause of acute lower respiratory infections in children, particularly in children younger than 5 years and 99% of RSV-associated deaths occur in low-income countries [1]. RSV vaccines are in development but there is little information about the cost of RSV illness to inform cost-benefit models of RSV vaccination programs. Our data illustrates that RSV-associated hospitalization among children aged ,5 years represents a substantial economic burden in Bangladesh and families caring for children with severe RSV illness frequently incur substantive out of pocket and indirect costs that result in financial hardship, particularly among the poorer. Our estimated cost of an episode of severe RSV illness (US$ 94) was similar to a previously published cost estimate for hospitalized pneumonia among children in Bangladesh [10]. We estimated the annual direct and indirect economic burden for RSV-associated hospitalization in Bangladesh; however, if non-hospitalized disease were ...
