Bronchiolitis

This is when there is inflammation of the smallest parts of the lungs. It most  often occurs in children younger than 2 years of age. The baby will most probably have shortness of breath, wheezing and will be coughing and have difficulty in feeding.

Physio treatment will involve assisting the baby to get the phlegm loose and then to assist the parents in getting it out, especially if the baby cannot cough.
