Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

Bronchiolitis is the most common lower respiratory tract infection in children with the most severe symptoms in infants accounting for 58,000 hospitalizations and 100-500 deaths in young children annually. Care is largely supportive. Initial data describing the positive impact of high flow nasal cannula in this population skyrocketed use across hospitals. We discuss oxygenation, oxygen delivery, review therapies as well as QI work in decreasing high flow use across the US healthcare system.


  • Define oxygenation and describe three oxygen delivery methods.
  • Analyze the evidence-based interventions available to support bronchiolitis management.
  • Discuss two interventions which can be applied to decrease high flow oxygen use and duration.
