Hypertonic saline in acute bronchiolitis, is it worth the salt?

Abstract

Acute viral bronchiolitis is the commonest lower respiratory tract infection seen during infancy [1]. Despite its frequency, there is no single widely-practised evidence based treatment approach [2]. Bronchodilators still remain the most prescribed, albeit without sound evidence for favorable clinical outcome [3]. Supportive treatment, ensuring adequate oxygen exchange and fluid intake, still remains the standard of care [4].
