AbstractObjective: Although the efficacy of systemic corticosteroids (SCs) in acute asthma exacerbations is well established, the fact that many children still require admission to hospital and that SCs have a slow onset of action are cause of concern. For this reason, the use of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) as a therapy added to SCs has been explored, with no clarity about its cost-effectiveness. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of ICS in addition to SCs (ICS...

Abstract Introduction and objectives With the objective of making informed decisions on resource allocation, there is a critical need for studies that provide accurate information on hospital costs for treating respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)-related bronchiolitis, mainly in middle-income countries (MICs). The aim of the present study was to evaluate the direct medical costs associated with bronchiolitis hospitalizations caused by infection with RSV in Bogota, Colombia. Material and methods We...

Summary Although recent guidelines recommend a minimalist approach to bronchiolitis, there are several issues with this posture. First, there are concerns about the definition of the disease, the quality of the guidelines, the method of administration of bronchodilators, and the availability of tools to evaluate the response to therapies. Second, for decades it has been assumed that all cases of viral bronchiolitis are the same, but recent evidence has shown that this is not the case. Distinct b...
