  • "Serious Early Childhood Wheezing Following Respiratory Syncytial Virus Lower Respiratory Tract Infection During Infancy Among Preterm Infants"
    Romero, JR et al (presenter: Hasan Jafri, MD)[(Friday, October 16, 2009; Room 145 (Washington Convention Center)]

    BACKGROUND: Prior studies have suggested that RSV infection is associated with the development of recurrent wheezing in early childhood. However, these studies have had limited sample sizes and lacked laboratory confirmation. This retrospective cohort study sought to determine the relationship between medically attended RSV and recurrent wheezing in the third year of life. Charts of nearly 90,000 infants born at 32 weeks gestation or greater were analyzed for evidence of recurring wheezing and RSV infection, and laboratory testing for RSV was confirmed.

  • "Increased Medical Costs and Use within a Year After Respiratory Syncytial Virus Lower Respiratory Tract Infection Among Commercially-Insured Late-Preterm Infants"
    Palmer, L et al (presenter: Lisa Palmer, MD) [Friday, October 16, 2009; Room 145 (Washington Convention Center)]

    BACKGROUND: RSV is the leading cause of hospitalization for infants up to the age of one, and is responsible for one of every 13 visits to a pediatrician and one of every 38 emergency room trips for children up to the age of five. This burden on the healthcare system has associated costs. This retrospective cohort study evaluated the total healthcare costs and use of services from infants born between 33 36 weeks gestation infected with RSV lower respiratory tract infection (LRI). These late-preterm infants were compared with a control group of infants without RSV LRI, all of whom were commercially insured.
