One of our pediatricians recently discussed bronchiolitis management with
one of my colleagues and I was curious to hear everyone's opinion/practice.
Her recommendations were:
* No steroids
* No albuterol
* No CXR
* No labs
* Pulse oximetry of 90% is normal in bronchiolitis
* Only criteria for admission is hypoxia, not eating or dehydration.
* Her source is the AAP 2006 Clinical Practice Guideline
I agree with some of her recommendations but was curious what everyone else
thought since many of you are in academic/community pediatric emergency
