The young and old are particularly vulnerable to respiratory infections. Influenza has been known to kill up to 650,000 people every year,1 while RSV is the leading cause of lower respiratory disease in children younger than 4 years of age; globally, nearly all children have been infected with RSV at least once, by age two.2 On the other end of the age continuum, RSV is also common in adults older than 65 and their risk of serious infection increases with age.3 Timely test results can help guide clinical decisions regarding treatment and patient isolation for infection control.
