Bronchiolitis is the most common lower respiratory tract infection in infants. Most infants and young children experience only a mild form of bronchiolitis, and they are managed on an outpatient basis. However, bronchiolitisassociated hospitalizations have increased considerably since Annual bronchiolitis hospitalization rates increased appreciably from toalthough Cited by: 3.

Bronchiolitis is a disorder most commonly caused in infants by viral lower respiratory tract infection. It is the most common lower respiratory infection in this age group. It is characterized by acute inflammation, edema, and necrosis of epithelial cells lining small airways, increased mucus production, and bronchospasm.

The American Academy of Pediatrics convened a committee composed of. Assessment and diagnosis. When diagnosing bronchiolitis, take into account that it occurs in children under 2 years of age and most commonly in the first year of life, peaking between 3 and 6 months. When diagnosing bronchiolitis, take into account that symptoms usually peak between 3 and 5 days, and that cough resolves in 90% of infants within 3 weeks.

Bronchiolitis remains a frequent cause of hospital admission in children, often causing severe disease even in previously healthy infants, thus implying a great burden for healthcare systems. Albeit that the treatment for bronchiolitis has been investigated for a long time, a firm conclusion on the best treatment has not been reached by: 1.

Bronchiolitis, a lower respiratory tract infection that primarily affects the small airways (bronchioles), is a common cause of illness and hospitalization in infants and young children.

The microbiology, epidemiology, clinical features, and diagnosis of bronchiolitis will be presented here. The Who. The U.S.

This is important: toddlerhood brings with it other conditions that mimic bronchiolitis – the first-time wheeze in a toddler may be his reactive airway response to a viral illness and not necessarily bronchiolitis.

Ill appearing, febrile infants should be evaluated for bacteremia (and coinfection) Non-toxic febrile infants at days with Bronchiolitis do not need a bacteremia work-up. Blood Cultures and Lumbar Puncture are not needed.

Bronchiolitis is a clinical syndrome of infants and young children characterized by wheezing, retractions, and tachypnea. Inflammation of the bronchioles or small airways produces exudate, edema, necrosis, and bronchospasm, which results in air trapping, atelectasis, and ventilation-perfusion mismatch.

Bronchiolitis typically presents in children under two years old and is characterized by a constellation of respiratory symptoms that consists of fever, rhinorrhea, cough, wheeze, tachypnea and increased work of breathing such as nasal flaring or grunting that develops over one to three days.

Crackles or wheeze are typical findings on listening to the chest with a cations: Respiratory distress, dehydration.

Up to 3% of all children in their first year of life are hospitalized with bronchiolitis. Bronchodilators and corticosteroids are commonly used treatments, but little consensus exists Cited by:   Infants younger than 1 year of age accounted for 81% of the hospitalizations, and infants younger than 6 months of age accounted for 57% of hospitalizations during the study period.

In the UK and other developed nations, between 1 and 4% of the entire birth cohort is hospitalised due to viral bronchiolitis each year, with a large degree of regional variability [1].

Acute bronchiolitis is the most common lower lung disease that causes substantial morbidity and hospitalization in young infants under 6 months of age [1, 2].In the first year of life, approximately 20–30% of children suffer from acute bronchiolitis that is frequently seen during the winter season, and infants are hospitalized with bronchiolitis [].Author: Şule Gökçe.

Introduction. Bronchiolitis is a lower respiratory tract infection commonly caused by virus in children.1 The annual hospital admission rate was per infants aged Cited by: 5. What is bronchiolitis.

Bronchiolitis is a common chest infection in young children. It usually causes a flu like illness that affects infants in the first year of life. It is caused by several different viruses. Bronchiolitis occurs frequently in the winter months and rarely in summer.

Management of infants with bronchiolitis to an oxygen saturation target of 90% or higher is as safe and clinically effective as one of 94% or higher. Future research should assess the benefits and risks of different oxygen saturation targets in acute respiratory infection in older children, particularly in developing nations where resources are by: Bronchiolitis in Infants and Small Children Introduction A common illness of the respiratory tract within infants and children under two is bronchiolitis.

This illness causes inflammation in the bronchioles. Hospitalization is often required because small children and .Bronchiolitis Definition Bronchiolitis is an acute viral infection of the small air passages of the lungs called the bronchioles.

Description Bronchiolitis is extremely common. It occurs most often in children between the ages of two and 24 months, with peak infection occurring between three and six months of age. About 25% of infants have bronchiolitis.
