Broncholitis in young children

Dr. Eric Freeman is treating very young children who suffer from broncholitis at CJW Pediatric Specialists.

The problem is found in children with persistent fever, distressful breathing, or signs of decreased oral intake. 

80% of children with bronchiolitis present before 1 year of age.  90% of children before 2 years of age.

Therapy for bronchiolitis includes aggressive administration of oral or IV fluids for hydration and occassional use of bronchodilators (i.e. Albuterol) to help with lung recovery.
