Weigh the Merits of Tests for Respiratory Viruses

Although infections caused by respiratory viruses are widespread, laboratory testing to identify the specific illness-causing pathogen generally is necessary only if a result would change how the illness is treated. ARUP Consult’s newly updated Respiratory Viruses and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) topics explain when and for which populations lab testing may be indicated.
