RSV/Bronchiolitis Resources

Due to the rapid rise in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) cases, there has been an increase in RSV-associated emergency department visits and hospitalizations in multiple U.S. regions. Clinicians and public health professionals should be aware of increases in respiratory viruses, including RSV. RSV is the most common cause of bronchiolitis (inflammation of the small airways in the lung) and pneumonia (infection of the lungs) in children younger than age 1 in the United States.
