Can you catch bronchiolitis more than once? Is there anything that can be done early when symptoms first show to try to stop it?

If one is prone to the wheezing that goes along with viruses, then there is not much you can do once the virus has started to hasten the episode. Best of luck! ...Read more

My daughter has bronchiolitis and her oxygen saturation today fell to 92. After receiving several meds via nebulizer and her vein. Cause?
Mismatch: between areas in the lungs where the oxygen can get through constricted airways and those parts of the lung tissue where the most of the blood is circulating creates the drop in percentage of oxygenated hemoglobin (saturation). 92% is worrying, but if it does not drop any further, is not life-threatening in a 15 months old, as long as there is prompt access to care and adequate monitoring ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
