[Comment] Oxygen saturation targets in infants with bronchiolitis

Acute viral bronchiolitis is associated with lower respiratory tract infections in infants. Although generally self-limiting and managed in the community, acute viral bronchiolitis is the most common cause of hospital admission in infants younger than 12 months of age, and is associated with substantial morbidity and health-care costs. Admissions of infants to hospital for bronchiolitis have increased in the past 20 years for reasons that might be multifactorial, although the use of pulse oximeters and insufficient evidence and clarity about levels of tolerable hypoxaemia are thought to be associated with increased admission rates.
