Preventing bronchiolitis

The viruses that cause bronchiolitis are extremely common and easily spread, so preventing the condition altogether is not possible. There is no vaccine, but there are steps you can take to help prevent your child from catching bronchiolitis or, if they already have it, to help prevent it from spreading further. You should:

  • Try to cover your child's nose and mouth when they cough or sneeze.
  • Use disposable tissues rather than cotton handkerchiefs, and throw them away as soon as they are have been used.
  • Wash your child's and your own hands frequently, especially after touching the child's nose or mouth, or after feeding.
  • Wash and dry eating utensils after use.
  • Keep infected children at home.
  • Keep newborn babies away from people with colds or flu, especially in their first two months or if they are born prematurely.

If your child is very premature, or if they are born with a heart or lung condition, it may be possible to for them to have monthly antibody injections in order to limit the severity of a possible bout of bronchiolitis. See your GP to find out more.

有派別說法可以使用洗鼻機,來作日常的保健。至於哪個牌子的洗鼻機好用,就見仁見智,通常一台堪上可使用的洗鼻機1價格都在$3000塊上下(或者更多?)

國泰Dr.張兆良說小璐屬於氣管比較敏感.過敏的體質,只要天氣一變化都要非常擔心bronchiolitis發生,常常搞得媽媽很神經質。
