RSV Blues

The dry season brings an increase in the number of respiratory infections here.  The Peds Ward has been filled the last 2 months with many young children with Pneumonia and RSV Bronchiolitis.  We have nearly depleted the supply of Albuterol that Dr Ed Malphus brought us 2 years ago.  We use the Albuterol for breathing treatments for the children who are wheezing.  Fortunately most of the children respond well to antibiotics, steroids and breathing treatments.

Today I was able to discharge home 4 children all recovering from their respiratory infections.
