Effectiveness of Chest Physiotherapy in Infants With Acute Viral Bronchiolitis
Effectiveness of Chest Physiotherapy Actual Versus Conventional Techniques in Infants With Acute Viral Bronchiolitis. Random Clinical Trial
The purpose of this study is to verify the effectiveness of chest physiotherapy (actual versus conventional) on respiratory distress in infants with acute viral bronchiolitis.

The infants were random in three groups: Conventional techniques, actual techniques and suction of upper airways On the first two groups the infants were evaluated on admission,48,72hours and before hospital discharge. On third group was evaluated only on admission when SRV was collected.

Respiratory distress was evaluated with Wang's score by the physiotherapists and nurses not participating in the research.
