Aspects of treatment of lower respiratory tract infections in terms of clinical guidelines of different countries (bronchiolitis, bronchitis, community-acquired pneumonia)
Keywords:bronchiolitis, bronchitis, community-acquired pneumonia
AbstractAccording to the international protocols, the treatment of lower respiratory tract infections has its own characteristics in different countries. In general, only oxygen therapy and proper hydration have sufficient evidence in the treatment of bronchiolitis. Virtually all recommendations indicate that acute bronchitis is a self-limiting condition; diagnosis of protracted bacterial bronchitis is possible taking into account the relevant diagnostic criteria. It is interesting to note the influence of vaccination status in the decision-making approach to the antibiotic treatment of community-acquired pneumonia.
