NICE urges GPs not to prescribe antibiotics for bronchiolitis

Comment

YES! But first review the procedures! A&E: aerosols + inhaled salbutamol, AND emergency respiratory physiotherapy, at the hospital then at home! AND fight against mites at home, AND Vitamine D AND iron supplementation if chronic ENT... And of course correct diagnostic! To do a correct diagnostic a minimum is a CXR and a FBC! Do not anymore send back home without treatment or some "paracetamol" the poor baby! Just a question: how many physio know how to make a baby spit, and to teach the mother to do it??? Of course if not done, the British weather, possible bad housing, crowed homes, then the secondary chest infection is quasi systematic!!
