Avatar f tn Bumper pads should never be used in infants’ cribs, according to new guidelines released by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). This recommendation, issued as part of an updated and expanded set of guidelines on safe sleep and SIDS prevention for babies, is the first time the AAP has officially come out against the use of crib bumpers.
Avatar f tn recommendationId=257 For infective endocarditis prophylaxis, current guidelines support premedication for only a relatively small subset of patients: history of prosthetic heart valve or past valve repair with prosthetic materials; prior infective endocarditis; unrepaired cyanotic congenital heart disease, including palliative shunts and conduits; repaired congenital heart defect with residual shunts or valvular regurgitation at the site of or adjacent to the site of a prosthetic patch or a pro
503418 tn?1231098736 Since 1955, the AHA has made recommendations for prevention of infective endocarditis with antimicrobial prophylaxis before specific dental, gastrointestinal (GI), and genitourinary (GU) procedures in patients at risk for its development. However, many authorities and societies, as well as the conclusions of published studies, have questioned the efficacy of antimicrobial prophylaxis in most situations.

203342 tn?1328737207 especially since it's the summer, he should be fine. Even just a few minutes of sun provides enough vitamin d. My first was prescribed them, although I don't remember exactly when. I don't think it was before 4 months. My second didn't actually start taking it until after 6 months. There's actually differing views on whether or not it's even necessary. The AAP does recommend it, although I think it's because they need to make general recommendations for all babies.
Avatar f tn per the latest American Heart Association guidelines, antibiotic prophylaxis for endocarditis (a severe infection of the heart) is no longer recommended for MR, nor is it recommended for gastrointestinal procedures.

172023 tn?1334672284 -------------------------------------------- The striking evidence that stomach sleeping might contribute to the incidence of SIDS led the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to recommend in 1992 that all healthy infants younger than 1 year of age be put to sleep on their backs (also known as the supine position). Since the AAP's recommendation, the rate of SIDS has dropped by OVER 50%.
400885 tn?1297698918 It's not about then being good or bad eaters, the AAP recommendation is to begin cereal at 6 months. Research has shown that a baby's tummy isn't developed enough to handle food before 6 months and as a result of giving food prior to 6 months, babies have a higher risk of developing foo allergies, etc. Every current book, article, study on the correct age to introduce cereal/food will tell you not before 6 months.
Avatar f tn First, medication is not the first line of defense/offense: "Should a child require treatment for ADHD, the AAP recommends a set of age-specific, first-line strategies for intervention. This is an important difference from the previous guidelines and stems from a wealth of new evidence on ADHD treatment of preschool children and adolescents.

Avatar f tn My 11 week has rsv .. He was full term .. Has any other mother had this in a infant ..
Avatar f tn That depends in the severity of the RSV. Right now my daughter (she's 18 months) has a very mild version of RSV.

Avatar n tn I have an 11 month old with rsv today is heart rate is avg 176bpm and his resp rate is 50 plus. This has been ongoing, he is hospitalized and on ventilation treatments. He is listless and we are worried, how long can a babies breathing and heart rate work this hard before he goes into distress.

593530 tn?1263847957 I brought Brody to his pediatrician last week because he was very congested. After a nose swab was tested it was determined that he has RSV. Since it's a virus it can't be treated with antibiotics, so she instructed me to get a cool mist humidifier and keep his nasal pasages clear by using saline solution. The only symptom he's had is the congestion. There's no fever, coughing, mucous coming out, etc.
1368291 tn?1299629804 Saturday he was having lots of nasal congestion and coughing so I took him to the ER. He tested positive for RSV so the last few days have been scary. We are doing a cool mist humidifier with eucalyptus oil at night, albuterol breathing treatments and keeping his nose suctioned out. I hope he gets better soon but I did learn that apparently you cant trust family to let you know...
Avatar f tn A teacher that I work with has a baby in the hospital with RSV. She emailed that if you baby has a cough with no fever, please take them to get checked for RSV. My DD is 6 months old and has had a chronic cough for a long time. It seems to get better and then starts all over again. I have taken to the doctor for it three times, the last time a week ago today. Everytime they check her really good and say it is just drainage from a cold. She has not had any fever and feels good.
Avatar m tn I was given 2g Azithromycin and 600mg Cefixime as prophylaxis later that night. However, the very next day, I started getting pain (like an ache) in the left inguinal node area that lasted a few minutes at a time and recurred throughout the day, but it did not hurt when I touched the area.

Avatar f tn RSV is one thing that I am really worried about. That is why I have taken Anna to the doctor 3 different times for the same cough. They always say her lungs are clear and have never even mentioned RSV to me. She feels fine during the day and is eating well. She has no fever and isn't seeming to have trouble breathing. Do you think she could still have RSV? My reason for not going back to the doctor is that where I live, flu and a serious stomach virus are really bad.
1225070 tn?1344709174 s very confusing for a parent. In these instances, I often go straight to the aap and read up on their guidelines. Usually, my ped follows the aap guidelines pretty strictly, so I assumed that's where he stood on this as well. I just did a quick search and it seems like what you are doing is fine according to the AAP. Just make sure it's pure juice and not a juice "drink" and that it is not replacing a meal.
