Abstract

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection is the most common cause of hospitalization for bronchiolitis and pneumonia in the winter for children younger than one year of age. After reviewing our hospital cost data for RSV hospitalization from the 1997-1998 RSV season and after accounting for the different numbers of patients in each group, we found that the weighted mean charges were $15,841; the mean cost was $10, 613; and the average length of stay was 3.9 days.
