Enterovirus D68 began
garnering national headlines in August 2014, when states in the Midwest saw a
surge in cases of this respiratory disease, which can cause
severe breathing problems in children. This virus is of concern
now because it can cause more severe disease than the usual common
cold. In some pediatric hospitals up to 15 percent of the
patients admitted with EV-D68 infection had to receive care in the
intensive care unit.
We work hard every day to help our patients get well and stay healthy. By following these guidelines you are helping us to provide the best care for our patients and their families.
