État des lieux de la prise en charge de la bronchiolite aiguë du nourrisson par les masseurs-kinésithérapeutes et les médecins généralistes de la région Bretagne

Abstract : Chest physiotherapy for bronchial decongestion has no longer been recommended for the management of acute bronchiolitis in infants since the new recommendations of the National Authority for Health from November 2019. They have been mainly based on hospital studies, whereas the majority of cases of bronchiolitis is followed up on an ambulatory basis. The aim here is to measure the impact of the new recommendations and to determine what role the physiotherapist plays in the management of this condition, on an ambulatory basis. Methods: A descriptive observational study using 2 questionnaires was carried out from December 2019 to January 2020 among general practitioners and physiotherapists in Brittany. Results: 39 practitioner questionnaires and 62 physiotherapist questionnaires were analyzed. 92% of practitioners found the diagnosis of bronchiolitis easy and 82% of physiotherapists found its management easy. 84% of practitioners prescribed chest physiotherapy. It included for these 2 professions: bronchial decongestion, child monitoring and family education. Professionals did not use enough the information documents. Discussion: Chest physiotherapy for bronchial decongestion is still widely prescribed. The physiotherapist retains a vital role in education and monitoring, in ambulatory care. Complementary ambulatory studies on the efficacy and interest of chest physiotherapy should be carried out.
