Hypertonic Saline vs Normal Saline in Bronchiolitis

3% Hypertonic Saline Versus Normal Saline in Inpatient Bronchiolitis: A Randomized Controlled Trial

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: We aimed to investigate the effect of nebulized 3% Hypertonic Saline compared with nebulized normal saline (NS) on length of stay (LOS) in infants hospitalized with bronchiolitis. Bronchiolitis, the most common reason for hospitalization in children younger than 1 year in the United States, has no proven therapies effective beyond supportive care.
