Is bronchiolitis serious?

Bronchiolitis can be very serious, especially for very young babies, or babies that have other medical conditions. Many cases of bronchiolitis start to get better within a few days, though a cough may last a couple of weeks. Babies with bronchiolitis need to be monitored very closely to make sure that they can get enough oxygen. Some severe cases may need to be treated in hospital.
