Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is the leading cause of hospitalisation for acute lower respiratory tract infections in infants under 1yo. Epidemiological studies suggest RSV bronchiolitis is associated with an increased risk of subsequent wheezing in children. This survey aimed to document the parents’ perception of the potential link between RSV infection and subsequent wheezing-related healthcare and family costs and parents’ awareness about RSV preventative solutions.
