The testing of bacteria and viruses in children's noses can provide clues to improve the diagnosis and treatment of infections In the extreme lung, a new study was found.
Lung infections are a leading cause of death among those who have not been mentioned all over the world.
Studies have shown that bacterial and viral infections have been changed into the nostrils of children with respiratory infections.
Researchers say that learning explains why some kids are more likely to develop infections than others.
It can also be a key to prevent serious lung infection.
University of Edinburgh researchers found that differences indicate the severity of the condition and may help doctors predict how long the child needs to stay in the hospital.
They say that in more serious cases, the need for antibiotics may reduce the need and help some children recover naturally.
& # 39; Important indicator & # 39;
Prof Debby Bogaert, of the Medical Research Council Center of the University of Edinburgh for Hypothesis Research, led the study, said: "Lung infections can be serious for infants and infants, and it is painful for parents.
"Our findings show the first time that the entire microbial community in the respiratory tract ̵
LRTI includes pneumonia and bronchiolitis.
University of Edinburgh researchers have worked with teams in the Netherlands to get samples from more than 150 children aged six in LRTI. They compare them with samples from 300 healthy children.
They learned that microbiomes from hospital children, bacteria and viruses found in the back of the nose and throat, are related to the presence of lungs, making it easier to understand and diagnose the infection.
The study was published in the journal The Lancet Respiratory Medicine.
