Paediatric Bronchiolitis Scenario

You are called to a 6-month-old male with a history of increasing shortness of breath, work of breathing, runny nose, a mild temperature, and reduced feeding. The mother called 111 as her son’s work of breathing seems to have increased, and they have transferred the job to 999 services.

On arrival the patient looks unwell, so you get organised quickly as you start a patient assessment and your colleague asks the mother questions on noteworthy history.
