CONTEXT Influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) cause substantial morbidity and mortality. Statistical methods used to estimate deaths in the United States attributable to influenza have not accounted for RSV circulation. OBJECTIVE To develop a statistical model using national mortality and viral surveillance data to estimate annual influenza- and RSV-associated deaths in the United States, by age group, virus, and influenza type and subtype. DESIGN, SETTING, AND POPULATION Age… 
Mortality in children from influenza and respiratory syncytial virus
TLDR
Influenza and RSV account for similar numbers of deaths in children in England, but the impact varies by winter and between age groups and is considerably underestimated if analysis is restricted to respiratory certified deaths.
Hospitalizations associated with influenza and respiratory syncytial virus in the United States, 1993-2008.

TLDR
This approach provides robust national comparisons of hospitalizations associated with these 2 viral respiratory pathogens by age group and over time, and is consistent with those from previous studies focusing either on influenza or RSV.
Influenza- and respiratory syncytial virus-associated adult mortality in Soweto.
TLDR
Influenza-related mortality was substantial and disproportionately affected the elderly and Influenza vaccination for the elderly warrants consideration.

Background: Influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) are the most important causes of medically attended acute respiratory illnesses. Medical encounters for acute respiratory illness peak each
Estimating influenza and respiratory syncytial virus-associated mortality in Western Kenya using health and demographic surveillance system data, 2007-2013
TLDR
A substantial excess mortality associated with influenza and RSV in Western Kenya is shown, especially among children <5 years and older persons with TB, supporting recommendations for influenza vaccination and efforts to develop RSV vaccines.
Influenza- and respiratory syncytial virus-associated mortality and hospitalisations
The aim of the current study was to estimate influenza- and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)-associated mortality and hospitalisations, especially the influenza-associated burden among low-risk
Mortality associated with seasonal and pandemic influenza and respiratory syncytial virus among children <5 years of age in a high HIV prevalence setting--South Africa, 1998-2009.

TLDR
The findings support increased research efforts to guide and prioritize interventions such as influenza vaccination and HIV prevention in low- and middle-income countries with high HIV prevalence such as South Africa.
Estimates of deaths associated with seasonal influenza --- United States, 1976-2007.
TLDR
The findings indicated the wide variation in the estimated number of deaths from season to season was closely related to the particular influenza virus types and subtypes in circulation.
Respiratory Syncytial and Influenza Viruses in Colombia between 1997 and 2014
Objective: Characterize the phenomenon of influenza A/B and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and its association with mortality in Colombia from 1997 to 2014. Methodology: An ecological time-series

Impact of influenza and respiratory syncytial virus on mortality in England and Wales from January 1975 to December 1990.
TLDR
Overall during the 15 winters the estimated mortality associated with RSV was 60-80% more than that associated with influenza, suggesting that RSV is an important cause of winter mortality.
Winter viruses: influenza- and respiratory syncytial virus-related morbidity in chronic lung disease.
TLDR
A retrospective cohort study to estimate rates of hospitalizations, deaths, outpatient visits, and antibiotic courses due to influenza and RSV in persons with chronic lung disease in the Tennessee Medicaid program from 1995 to 1999 finds influenza-attributable morbidity was highest at the extremes of age.
Bronchiolitis-associated mortality and estimates of respiratory syncytial virus-associated deaths among US children, 1979-1997.
TLDR
It was estimated that < or =510 RSV-associated deaths occurred annually during the study period, fewer than previously estimated.
Respiratory syncytial virus pneumonia among the elderly: an assessment of disease burden.
TLDR
The total RSV disease burden is probably great enough to justify development of an RSV vaccine for use in this group of elderly, and the estimated annual cost of RSV pneumonia hospitalizations is $150-680 million.
Contribution of influenza and respiratory syncytial virus to community cases of influenza-like illness: an observational study
TLDR
A community-based observational study of RSV infection in community-dwelling individuals of all ages who presented to general practices in the UK with influenza-like illnesses during three successive winters, finding the burden of illness attributable to each needs to be clarified to define optimum management routines.
Association between respiratory syncytial virus outbreaks and lower respiratory tract deaths of infants and young children.
TLDR
The idea that RSV is a major contributor to winter peaks in lower respiratory tract illness (LRI) deaths of infants 1-11 months old is supported.
Influenza and the rates of hospitalization for respiratory disease among infants and young children.
TLDR
Infants and young children without chronic or serious medical conditions are at increased risk for hospitalization during influenza seasons, and routine influenza vaccination should be considered in these children.
Respiratory syncytial and other virus infections in persons with chronic cardiopulmonary disease.
TLDR
The incidence and clinical impact of RSV infection in persons with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure who reside in the community were prospectively evaluated over two consecutive winters in 134 persons.
Respiratory syncytial virus infection in adults.
TLDR
Prevention of RSV infection is limited to standard infection control practices such as hand washing and the use of gowns and gloves, but early bronchoscopy is valuable in immunosuppressed patients.
