The Incidence and Impact of Viral Respiratory Infections in Adults Hospitalized with Exacerbations of Bronchiectasis

Abstract

The importance of viral respiratory infections (VRI) in exacerbations of bronchiectasis is poorly understood. However, they have been proposed as the microbiological ‘trigger’ for bronchiectasis exacerbations. The aims of this study were to describe the rate of VRI in patients hospitalized with bronchiectasis exacerbations and evaluate their effects on exacerbation severity.
