The chest radiograph in acute bronchiolitis
TLDR
It is suggested that the request for a chest X‐ray in acute bronchiolitis should be made only when the need for intensive care is being considered, where there has been an unexpected deterioration in the child's condition or the child has an underlying cardiac or pulmonary disorder.
Diagnosis and management of bronchiolitis.
TLDR
This guideline addresses the diagnosis of bronchiolitis as well as various therapeutic interventions including bronchodilators, corticosteroids, antiviral and antibacterial agents, hydration, chest physiotherapy, and oxygen.

TLDR
Results of a randomized trial conducted among hospitalized infants with bronchiolitis show that a physiotherapy technique commonly used in France does not reduce time to recovery in this population.

TLDR
Preliminary evidence suggests a potential future role for a combination of either bronchodilators or corticosteroids for treatment of bronchiolitis and other novel treatments such as nebulized hypertonic saline.

Antibiotics for bronchiolitis in children.
TLDR
This review found minimal evidence to support the use of antibiotics for bronchiolitis, but research to identify a possible small subgroup of patients who have complications from bron chiolitis such as respiratory failure and who may benefit from antibiotics is justified.
Clinical and therapeutic variables influencing hospitalisation for bronchiolitis in a community-based paediatric group practice.
TLDR
Early treatment of bronchiolitis with oral corticosteroid in an outpatient clinic setting was associated with lower hospitalisation rates in patients with a family history of asthma or allergic rhinitis and in RSV-negative patients.
A multicenter, randomized, controlled trial of dexamethasone for bronchiolitis.
TLDR
In infants with acute moderate-to-severe bronchiolitis who were treated in the emergency department, a single dose of 1 mg of oral dexamethasone per kilogram did not significantly alter the rate of hospital admission, the respiratory status after 4 hours of observation, or later outcomes.
