The goal of this program is to improve management of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) bronchiolitis and community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Identify children at risk for RSV bronchiolitis.
2. Distinguish among characteristics of infection with human metapneumovirus, RSV, and influenza A virus.
3. Select children who may benefit from palivizumab treatment.
4. Perform appropriate tests for diagnosis of CAP.
5. Outline treatment of CAP in outpatient and inpatient settings.
