In the wake of the newborn baby bronchiolitis epidemic, which mobilizes pediatricians and emergency services each year between November and February, the Health Authority is releasing recommendations this Thursday, most likely to disrupt the management of this highly viral affliction. The goal is twofold: to reduce the number of unjustified hospitalizations and care for refocusing treatments that have proven effective.
After reviewing the scientific literature, experts return to the practice of respiratory physiotherapy, which consists of de-clotting the bronchi with pressure on the baby's ribs. "Several studies conducted at the hospital conclude that the technique does not bring clinical improvement and does not reduce the length of stay.", emphasizes P.Christoph Margut, pneumo-pediatrician at Rouen University Hospital and chair of the working group.
