Respiratory Tract Infections

Respiratory tract infections (RTIs) are any infection of the sinuses, throat, airways or lungs. They are usually caused by viruses, but can be caused by bacteria. RTIs are thought to be one of the main reasons why people visit their GP or pharmacist. The common cold is the most widespread RTI. Healthcare professionals generally make a difference between them as: Upper respiratory tract infections -- which affect the nose, sinuses and throat

                             Lower respiratory tract infections – which affect the airway and lungs

Children tend to get more upper RTIs than adults because they haven’t built up immunity (resistance) to many viruses that can cause these infections.
