Since 1950, even though several efforts have been made to achieve an effective treatment for bronchiolitis, it has remained mainly supportive .The recent practice guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)  and the UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines  recommend the administration of either nasogastric or intravenous fluid in.
Bronchiolitis typically lasts for two to three weeks. Most children with bronchiolitis can be cared for at home with supportive care. It's important to be alert for changes in breathing difficulty, such as struggling for each breath, being unable to speak or cry because of difficulty breathing, or making grunting noises with each breath The new guidelines emphasize the use of supportive care, including hydration and oxygen. [ 230, 110] Other recommendations include the following: As multiple viruses may cause bronchiolitis, testing for specific viruses is not necessary. Routine radiographic or laboratory studies are also not. High flow oxygen via nasal cannulae is recommended for infants with bronchiolitis who are hypoxic. Medications such as beta-2-agonists (e.g. salbutamol), corticosteroids, and hypertonic saline are not indicated. Refer to the Pre-school Wheeze Guideline for the management of wheeze in children aged 1-5 years Bronchiolitis is the most common reason for admission to hospital in the first year of life. There is tremendous variation in the clinical management of this condition across Canada and around the world, including significant use of unnecessary tests and ineffective therapies. This statement pertains to generally healthy children ≤24 months of age with bronchiolitis Since no definitive antiviral therapy exists for most causes of bronchiolitis, management of these infants should be directed toward symptomatic relief and maintenance of hydration and oxygenation...
This guideline is based on the PREDICT Australasian bronchiolitis clinical guideline with additional information specific to Starship. This is intended for infants aged 0-12 months with bronchiolitis. The guideline may be relevant for 12-24 months old but there is less diagnostic certainty in this age group 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 treatment, outcome, and prevention of bronchiolitis in children; respiratory syncytial virus; and the emergent evaluation of children with acute respiratory distress are discussed separately In Italy, two clinical practice guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of bronchiolitis were published in October 2014 and December 2015. We evaluated prescriptions for bronchiolitis in. Bronchiolitis is a viral lower respiratory tract infection that accounts for ∼130 000 annual admissions in the United States and >18% of hospitalizations in infants <12 months of age. 1,2 The 2014 American Academy of Pediatrics bronchiolitis clinical practice guideline recommends supportive management, including suctioning, maintaining hydration, and providing supplemental oxygen for. The following therapies may be considered to manage bronchitis-related symptoms: Antitussives (dextromethorphan, codeine, hydrocodone) in patients six years and olde
Acute bronchiolitis treatment guidelines changed in Norway in 2013, no longer recommending the use of nebulised epinephrine. We aimed to assess whether these changes were successfully implemented in both primary and secondary care. Secondary aims were to compare the difference in management of acute bronchiolitis patients in primary and secondary care between 2009 and 2017. Methods We. The treatment studies we reviewed were also almost universally underpowered and as such were unable to give clinicians adequate guidance for management of bronchiolitis. However, we believe that all of these types of treatments will continue to be used unless a large pragmatic trial of the most commonly used interventions is mounted. Such a trial, using the most important outcome measures. Turner T, Wilkinson F, Harris C, et al. Evidence based guideline for the management of bronchiolitis. Aust Fam Physician 2008;37:6-13.

While the guideline is directed at prevention of bronchiolitis for all children, the action statements about management of bronchiolitis do not apply to children with immunodeficiencies. Bronchiolitis is a common chest infection that usually affects babies under a year old. Although many get better without treatment, a small number of children will need hospital treatment, occasionally in the intensive care unit. Here we explain the causes and symptoms of bronchiolitis, the treatment available and where to get help
Most guidelines recommend primarily supportive treatment, that is, oxygen, nasal suctioning, mechanical ventilation, and hydration. 67 High flow oxygen therapy using nasal cannula has shown promising results. 68 There is conflicting information across clinical guidelines about the role of nebulized hypertonic saline in acute management of bronchiolitis How Bronchiolitis Is Treated. There are no vaccines or specific treatments for bronchiolitis. Antibiotics and cold medicine are not effective in treating bronchiolitis.

There is no single effective therapy for bronchiolitis; Treatment for bronchiolitis is supportive care; Many therapy options have been studied and not shown to be beneficial - this includes: steroids, nebulized. This guideline is a revision of the clinical practice guideline, Diagnosis and Management of Bronchiolitis, published by the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2006. The guideline applies to children from 1 through 23 months of age. Other exclusions are noted. Each key action statement indicates level of evidence, benefit-harm relationship, and level of recommendation Treatment is supportive. Evidence based guidelines for the treatment of acute viral bronchiolitis primarily involve supportive care, which most often includes supplemental oxygen, hydration, and suctioning of secretions. However, in practice, bronchiolitis care is highly variable, often involving therapies such as inhaled bronchodilators, systemic corticosteroids, inhaled hypertonic saline, continuous pulse oximetry.

Guidance is available to help deal with the annual rise in infant bronchiolitis while coping with COVID-19. Bronchiolitis, a significant contributor to ED workloads in winter, affects one in three infants in the UK in the first year of life. Robust infection control measures must be maintained in emergency departments during the winter Introduction. Viral bronchiolitis is the most common lower respiratory tract infection in infants 1 and has a heavy impact on pediatric healthcare 2, 3. Bronchiolitis is mainly caused by Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) 4 and the diagnosis is based on medical history and clinical findings Quality improvement interventions have been shown to improve adherence with bronchiolitis treatment guidelines; however, the long-term effect of these interventions is unclear. We show that while such an intervention led to a long-lasting change, this was attenuated with time. Repeated interventions are required to maintain guideline adherence.
