Infectious Diseases Respiratory


I’m sure that you’ll probably see a case of bronchiolitis this winter. Call it a hunch. In this episode of PEM Currents you’ll learn why suctioning and ensuring hydration are still the mainstays of therapy, and why albuterol, racemic epinephrine, steroids and more don’t have a place in routine cases. And if you read any publication to supplement this podcast make it the most recent American Academy of Pediatrics Guideline on Bronchiolitis.

Todd also recommended that all of my listeners check out the current AAP Bronchiolitis Guideline, which I’ve linked here. AAP Bronchiolitis Guideline
