With regard to bronchiolitis, strong evidence of effectiveness does exist only for oxygen and hydration. There is some evidence on the effectiveness of nebulised adrenaline, but it does not significantly improve the clinical course, nor reduce the need for intensive care. There is no sufficient evidence with respect to its possible use at home, also taking into account the uncertainties on its safety profile.
