In face of the recent AAP Guideline on the management of bronchiolitis, I

practices to serve as the treatment group in my non-randomized
observational study. Our center will serve as the 'out-of-control' group
and we will be initiating a new clinical pathway entitled... 'Empiric

It is my hypothesis that our group's admission and bounce-back rates will
be the same as last year.

I anxiously await the data from the centers who adopt the AAP approach!
