Bronchiolitis in Infants
Protocol: STUDY00004728
Full Title
Utility of measuring ETCO2 in predicting the need for HFNC among 2-24 months old patients with ronchiolitis in a Pediatric Emergency Room
Description
Participants 1-24 months old at Oishei Children's Hospital Emergency Deparment (ED) with suspected Bronchiolitis may be eligible for this study. Once enrolled, participants will undergo two carbon dioxide measurements, first will be done upon ED arrival at the Triage room, and the second one will be done upon ED discharge at patient's private room. Otherwise, participant will receive routine clinical care.

The main purpose of this study is to determine if carbon dioxide readings in patients with bronchiolitis who require high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) treatment are higher than those who do not require HFNC treatment. The plan is to enroll at least 50 subjects in this study, with 25 need HFNC treatment and 25 do not.

Technical Description

(CSR 200673530702) This is an observational study. The primary aim is to determine if ETCO2 readings in patients with bronchiolitis who require HFNC treatment are higher than those who do not require HFNC treatment. The secondary aim is to determine if patients ETCO2 values correlate with the bronchiolitis score calculated based on a recently developed Predictive Multivariable Model Severity Scor
