This week on the podcast, we talk to Dr. Mary Carol Burkhardt about respiratory syncytial virus, commonly known as RSV. Listen in as we break down the symptoms of RSV and thoughts on why we’re seeing it so early in the year, bronchiolitis, advice for parents who are feeling the stress of so many respiratory viruses circulating in the community, if and when parents should take their child to the doctor and symptoms of bronchiolitis that indicate an ED visit is necessary. This one is jam-packed with helpful information for every parent.
