    • Abstract:
      In a study of infants with bronchiolitis, it was found that nebulized epinephrine did not improve clinical status or reduce the length of the hospital stay in infants aged less than one year. The diagnosis of bronchiolitis was made based on history and clinical findings consistent with bronchiolitis. The results showed that treatment with epinephrine, compared with placebo, had no significant effect on the length of the hospital stay or the time until the infant was ready for discharge. Moreover, there was no significant difference between the groups in the time receiving supplemental oxygen or in the rates of intensive care or ventilatory support.
