Recurrent Respiratory Infections in Children

F. Yurochko

Abstract


The paper covers a problem of recurrent respiratory infections (RRI) in children. Their description, risk factors, diagnostic algorithm have been dwelt. A special attention is paid to the treatment. An optimal antibiotic in RRI of bacterial genesis is a high-dose amoxicillin/clavulanate (registered as Augmentin™ ES in Ukraine), the efficacy of which is 94.6–96.3 % according to different data.


Keywords
