Improving the Management and Outcomes for Infants Hospitalised with Bronchiolitis
Menzies School of Health Research, in partnership with the Royal Darwin Hospital, investigated new treatments to control the severity of bronchiolitis in infants admitted to the hospital suffering from the illness. The project also aimed to understand the issues which can affect the severity of the illness.
The project involved:
- assessing the effectiveness of the medicine azithromycin to improve in both the short and long term the respiratory health of babies admitted to hospital
- examine how the immune system and any respiratory infections the babies may already be suffering from affect the severity of bronchiolitis.
