Description

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.
