Bronchiolitis severity scoring tools study

 

Overview

This study will investigate severity scoring tools and their validity and reliability in assessing bronchiolitis in children aged less than two years old. A secondary aim of the study is to determine if the scoring system can predict the need for oxygen being given to these children. A respiratory educational DVD will be produced as part of the study to assist health professionals assess and manage bronchiolitis in young children, in particular Indigenous children. Participants will be young children presenting to the Royal Darwin Hospital with signs of bronchiolitis.
