Bronchiolitis

Bronchiolitis is mainly caused by the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). The virus travels down to the bronchioles in the lungs causing them to become inflamed making it difficult to breath.

Almost every child will be infected with RSV by the time they reach two years. Adults can also contract the virus, typically during winter months.

In mild cases bronchiolitis will clear up without treatment. The virus that causes bronchiolitis travels through tiny droplets of liquid and can be passed through the air or contracted by touching infected surfaces.

Symptoms include: Sore throat, dry cough, blocked nose and aches and pains throughout the body.

Although there is no cure for chronic bronchiolitis research and clinical studies on bronchiolitis suggest that some lifestyle changes can ease symptoms: avoid smoking, eat a healthy diet and maintain regular exercise. In extreme cases steroids can be prescribed to help minimise inflammation.

125. Bronchodilators for bronchiolitis.

Bronchodilators for bronchiolitis. OBJECTIVES: Bronchiolitis is an acute, highly communicable lower respiratory tract infection. Bronchodilators are commonly used in the management of bronchiolitis in North America, but not in the United Kingdom. The objective of this review was to assess the effects of bronchodilators for bronchiolitis. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, Reference Update, reference lists of articles, and the files of two of the authors up to June 1998. SELECTION (...) CRITERIA: Randomised trials comparing bronchodilators with placebo in the treatment of bronchiolitis. DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS: Two reviewers independently assessed trial quality and extracted data. Unpublished data were requested from authors when necessary. MAIN RESULTS: In eight trials with 394 children, 46% demonstrated an improved clinical score with bronchodilators compared to 75% with placebo (odds ratio for no improvement 0.29, 95% confidence interval 0.19 to 0.45). However, the inclusion
