About Respiratory Infections

Respiratory infection is a leading cause of seeking medical care in returning travelers. Respiratory infections occur in up to 20% of all travelers, which is almost as common as travelers’ diarrhea. Respiratory tract infections are any infection of sinuses, throat, airways, or lungs. Healthcare professionals generally make a distinction between upper respiratory tract infections (nose, sinuses and throat) and lower respiratory tract infections (airways and lungs).
