November 2014: Baby swimming and rhinovirus-induced wheezing
Baby swimming is very popular in many countries, but it may be a risk factor for rhinovirus-induced wheezing illnesses, particularly in children with atopic eczema. This finding comes from a birth cohort study in which 1827 children were followed until 17 months of age. Data on infant swimming, bronchiolitis, recurrent wheezing and viral diagnostics were collected. “Our results suggest human respiratory virus as a pathophysiological link between infant swimming and wheezing illnesses in atopic infants”, Linnea Schuez-Havupalo and her co-authors conclude (pp. 1153-1158).
