She has examined the role of steroids and epinephrine together in managing bronchiolitis and is developing a clinical decision rule for predicting the development of severe bronchiolitis. Dr. Plint will also be leading a study to determine the prevalence, type, and severity of adverse events in children seen in the Emergency Department.
