Bronchiolitis: the other respiratory illness surging in children during the COVID-19 pandemic
It’s winter 2022, and COVID-19 is still wreaking havoc on patients and the health care system. When a child comes in with respiratory symptoms, the first thing that may come to your mind is coronavirus; however, it’s important to remember that cases of bronchiolitis, including respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), have also been skyrocketing.
As medical professionals, we’re painfully aware of how much the COVID-19 pandemic has infiltrated our practices. But having a new respiratory virus on the block doesn’t mean other previously existing viruses have gone away. In fact, in late fall of 2021, U.S. pediatric hospitals saw a surge of RSV and other viral bronchiolitis cases.

In their podcast, Guidelines with Gabi: Something Old, Something New, Lots of Kids Needing O2: Update in Bronchiolitis, Drs. Gabi Hester and Nadia Maccabee-Ryaboy discuss the influx of bronchiolitis cases they’ve seen at Children’s Minnesota along with methods of treatment, possible coexisting infections and promising research on the horizon.
