RSV

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a common virus that affects all adults and children. However, in infants born prematurely (35 weeks gestation or less), RSV can cause them to be very sick.

RSV occurs most often in the months from fall to spring. If your baby was born premature within the last two years, he/she may be a candidate to receive a prophylactic medication, called Synagis, to prevent RSV. Contact our office for additional information.
