Dr Mellick’s YouTube Video “Treating Bronchiolitis in the Outpatient Setting”-The 2014 AAP Bronchiolitis Guidelines Are Wrong

In this post, I link to and embed Dr. Larry Mellick‘s YouTube video, “Treating Bronchiolitis in the Outpatient Setting“- [The 2014 AAP Bronchiolitis Guidelines Are Wrong],  9:22, May 24, 2022.

Dr. Mellick writes:

In this video we present an infant with RSV bronchiolitis who was treated with albuterol and atrovent, racemic epinephrine and 3% hypertonic saline nebulizations as well as suctioning. The patient improved markedly after the treatments and was discharged home.

The evidence that the 2014 AAP Bronchiolitis Guidelines and multiple international guidelines were significantly flawed from the start is strong and is growing every year. The consequences and challenges caused by these flawed guidelines for the frontline clinician have been huge. This video hopes to serve as a call for our national and international organizations to revisit the guidelines and better align their recommendations with the current evidence.
