What is RSV?

RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) is a respiratory virus that leads to cold-like symptoms and chest congestion. It is the most common cause of bronchiolitis in infants and children and the third leading cause of death from infectious disease in children under five years old. Early detection is an important step in the prevention of many diseases. In the case of child and elderly patients, early detection can help protect them from serious complications

UrgentMed has offices in Davie and Plantation that are open 7 days a week. You should definitely set up an appointment, but you’re welcome to stop by one of our offices without one.

Typical symptoms of RSV include:

Runny Nose
Decrease in Appetite

These symptoms usually happen gradually over time, and not all at the same time. Most children have an RSV infection by their second birthday.

How is RSV Transmitted?

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the most common cause of lower respiratory tract infections in children. It is spread through water droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes and through direct contact. RSV infection can be spread to others by contact with secretions from the nose and throat of infected people, such as by caring for them.
People infected are usually contagious for 3-8 days and may become more contagious a day or two after they show signs of illness. However, infants with weakened immune system may continue to spread after they stop showing symptoms, for as long as 4 weeks according to the CDC.

How is RSV Treated?

RSV usually goes away on its own without any treatment. In some cases, it may need to be treated with antiviral medication or other medications prescribed by your doctor.
