Also visit the Little Steps web site to test out the new Synagis Referral
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the #1 cause of hospitalization in
babies under a year. Our babies at developmental risk can be the most
severely affected. We anticipate the need to protect high risk infants
beginning with injections of Synagis in November to achieve protective
levels by the start of the season and continue monthly through March.
The new Synagis Referral Forms allow you to prepare the forms online and
submit them directly to the Pediatric Diagnostic Center or to print copies
for use at your Office.
Go to: http://www.rain.org/Littlesteps/synagis-forms-2008.HTML to review
the forms and try them out.
Be sure to check out the links on the Littlesteps web for valuable
information on Synagis for Parents and Health Professionals.
