Respiratory Synctial Virus (RSV) is the cause of one of the most common early childhood diseases. Usually affecting the upper respiratory tract, the condition most often occurs during the colder months of the year. Healthy children with RSV experience mild, cold-like respiratory symptoms. Higher-risk children with RSV may experience a more serious respiratory infection.
A doctor may perform a physical exam to determine if you or your child has RSV, considering the time of year the symptoms occur. During the exam, the doctor will listen to the lungs with a stethoscope to check for wheezing or other abnormal sounds. Chest X-rays, blood tests, cultures, or urine tests may be ordered as well.
