1. Identifying hospitalized infants who have bronchiolitis and are at high risk for apnea.
Match Strength: 8.226
STUDY OBJECTIVE: Young infants with bronchiolitis are at risk for apnea. We seek to determine the rate of apnea in young infants with bronchiolitis and evaluate the performance of a predefined set of risk criteria for identifying infants at high risk for the development of apnea. METHODS: We identified a retrospective cohort study of patients treated in the emergency department (ED) of an urban pediatric tertiary care hospital from November 1995 to June 2000. All infants younger than 6 months who met our study definition of bronchiolitis and were admitted to the hospital were included. We ... Read More »

2. The severity of respiratory syncytial virus bronchiolitis in young infants in the United arab emirates.
Match Strength: 4.340
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) respiratory infections are very common during infancy and account for the majority of hospitalizations during the fall and winter seasons. Patients vary in the severity of their illnesses, with most hospitalized patients needing oxygen and intravenous fluids. The objective of this study was to assess in hospitalized patients the severity of the disease in relation to age. We compared children who were <90 days old with children who were >90 days old for the duration of oxygen therapy, maximum oxygen concentration used, duration of stay and duration of ... Read More »

3. Immunopathology of RSV infection: prospects for developing vaccines without this complication.
Match Strength: 2.855
Respiratory syncytial virus is the most important cause of lower respiratory tract infection in infants and young children. RSV clinical disease varies from rhinitis and otitis media to bronchiolitis and pneumonia. An increased incidence of asthma later in life has been associated with the more severe lower respiratory tract infections. Despite its importance as a pathogen, there is no licensed vaccine against RSV. This is due to a number of factors complicating the development of an effective and safe vaccine. The immunity to natural RSV infection is incomplete as re-infections occur in all ... Read More »

4. Acute and chronic respiratory diseases in pregnancy: associations with placental abruption.
Match Strength: 2.811
OBJECTIVE: This study was undertaken to examine the associations between maternal respiratory diseases and placental abruption. STUDY DESIGN: A population-based, retrospective cohort study was conducted to examine the associations between maternal respiratory diseases and abruption in the United States. Data on women who delivered singleton births (n = 37,314,022) were derived from the National Hospital Discharge Survey for the years 1993 to 2003. International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) codes were used to identify pregnant women hospitalized ... Read More »
