Part Descriptions

LP14244-5   Respiratory syncytial virus
Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), a negative-sense, single-stranded RNA virus of the family Paramyxoviridae, causes upper respiratory tract infections and bronchiolitis, an infection of the small airways that can cause wheezing and respiratory distress. Infants, especially those that were born prematurely, are particularly susceptible, and RSV bronchiolitis is a common cause of hospitalization for infants during the winter months. Certain groups of high-risk infants may be given palivizumab, a recombinant monoclonal antibody to RSV, as prophylaxis against RSV infection. Source: Regenstrief LOINC

LP39551-4   Respiratory syncytial virus RNA
The respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a member of the Paramyxoviridae family and is an enveloped pleomorphic virus. RSV is spread through contact with respiratory droplets, contact with the patient and contact with contaminated surfaces. The rate of transmission is affected by outside temperature, humidity and precipitation. RSV infection spreads faster when the temperature is low and the humidity is high in temperate zones and when rainfall levels are high in tropical climates. RSV causes severe lower respiratory infections in infants and young children. Infants born prematurely are particularly susceptible. Symptoms of RSV infection include cough, low-grade fever and rhinorrhea. High risk adult populations including patients in residential facilities, those with heart and lung diseases and immunocompromised patients are susceptible to severe RSV infection and significant morbidity.(Manual of Clinical Microbiology, 11th edition, James H. Jorgensen; Karen C. Carroll; Guido Funke; Michael A Pfaller; Marie Louise Landry; Sandra S. Richter; David W. Warnock) Source: Regenstrief LOINC
