Abstract

A short-cut review was carried out to establish whether nebulised hypertonic saline reduces length of stay and symptoms in children with bronchiolitis. One Cochrane review was found, which addressed this question. This review is summarised. The clinical bottom line is that nebulised hypertonic saline does reduce length of stay and symptoms in children with bronchiolitis.
