RSV Roundtable : Episode 1

RSV roundtable: What clinicians are witnessing in terms of RSV incidence


Last year’s historic RSV season left many wondering if this was going to become a recurring trend. Physicians weigh in on what they are seeing at their institutions in terms of infection rates.

We want to welcome you to the first episode from our respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) roundtable series, which is a collaborative effort that includes Contemporary Pediatrics, Contagion, and Contemporary OB/GYN. This series looks to discuss several topics around the virus, and it includes subjects such as incidence rates, preventative vaccines and immunizations, and how the introduction of these new prophylactic modalities can curb infections.

Our panel of clinicians includes:

  • Robert H. Hopkins Jr., MD, medical director, National Foundation of Infectious Disease, professor of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, chief of the Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences
  • William Muller, MD, PhD, attending physician, Infectious Diseases, Ted Emerson Miller research scholar, professor of Pediatrics (Infectious Diseases), Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, scientific director, Clinical and Community Trials, Stanley Manne Children's Research Institute, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital
  • Sallie Permar, MD, PhD, Nancy C. Paduano professor and chair, Department of Pediatrics, Weill Cornell Medicine, pediatrician-in-chief, New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center
  • Laura Riley, MD, chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Weill Cornell Medicine, obstetrician and gynecologist-in-chief at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center
  • Neil Silverman, MD, professor, obstetrics and gynecology, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA, director of the Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship program

This will be a five-part series that will be posted every Friday over the coming weeks. In today’s episode, clinicians discuss what they are seeing in terms of RSV incidence rates at their institutions compared to last year’s historic RSV season.

The RSV Roundtable video series is part of our larger special coverage project, RSV: A New Era in Prevention.
