HSC urges prevention of infant lung infections

Health Sciences Centre wants parents to take steps to prevent respiratory infections in newborns after seeing a jump in the number of infections.

Since mid-December, there have been 106 cases of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) admitted to Children's Hospital, according to the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority. A total of 19 kids had to be taken to the intensive care unit.

RSV is a virus that can lead to respiratory infections, such as bronchiolitis. It can occur year-round, but is most common during the winter months.

Dr. Cheryl Rockman-Greenberg, medical director of the WRHA's child health program, stressed the need for basic hygiene and common sense: keeping babies away from places where they could catch a cold from others, like schools or shopping malls, for example.

"Hygiene and handwashing to prevent the transmission is probably the most important, as well as keeping the young children away from people who have obvious respiratory infections, colds and sneezing," she said.
