Rsv in a newborn

Common Questions and Answers about Rsv in a newborn


Avatar f tn I agree with bathing them once a week in a baby tub. You could always wipe them up in between with warm wipes!!
Avatar f tn She is running a fever again, has a wet cough and a runny nose. She was just sick in the beginning of December and in the end of October bofore that. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm doing something wrong. She is not in daycare so she cannot be getting it from the other kids. She rarely comes in contact with other kids (other than her brother who also stays home full time). What the heck is going on???
Avatar f tn What a coincidence!
Avatar n tn They seem to be ok, though my youngest has RSV....the heavy breathing that babies develop. Will newborn be at risk too? Thank you for your professional and unbiased help.

Avatar n tn mine had it as a newborn. doc will probably prescribe a nebulizer with albuterol.
Avatar f tn My 6 week old daughter was released from hospital 10 days ago after spending 6 days in there due to RSV which developed into Bronchiolitis. She stopped breathing twice in the early stages of the illness while in hospital. Her heart and breathing was monitored at the time and it was noted that it would dip down into the 80's and then come back up to 140's in a matter of seconds. It was noted that this occurred when she was in a deep sleep.
220217 tn?1209679677 i did some reading on rsv these past few months for some reason...and ds had a bit of bronchitis when he was quite newborn still...and its all related to rsv so i asked his ped when we went and he said yup thats what it was but no one usually knows what i mean..ds was put on some syrup for it and it cleared up...its so scary though-he is much better..we have the choice for a vaccine here and i dont remember what its called..
Avatar f tn My daughter is 12 months old, she has Down Syndrome. Her health as a newborn was unremarkable. Whilst there were no murmers detected upon her diagnosis after birth, at approx 2-3 months of age I was unhappy with her continual appearance of respiratory effort. I demanded to see a paediatric cardiologist. So at 5 months of age we got an appointment, at at that time she had bronchiolitis, and quite unwell.
Avatar n tn My son had RSV when he was 2 weeks old and was in the hospital for 2 weeks....He is now 10 and has never had any lung problems, That is realey the onley time he has ever been sick...Hope this helps..i will be praying for ur familey....
1690584 tn?1340297472 Savannah was admitted to the hospital for RSV, Bronchitis, Ear Infection. Stayed until Saturday but was released earlier then she should have been due to Christmas. Her oxygen levels were still not staying up high but she is now doing better. She does have a partial collapse of the right lung and they want to no check her heart due to some blue around the mouth.
1636573 tn?1300257994 The first day we got home he seemed sick well I found out he had RSV. He was on treatments for a few weeks then stopped. He cleared up and now he is bout 2 1/2 months old. He has doubledhis birth weight but now he is having trouble eating. And he wheezes when he breaths, and breaths fast. No cough. But he has always breath fast. And his lungs always sound clear.
Avatar f tn She is on 5 liters on oxygen and a Oral-Gastrostomy tube placed. She is on antibiobtics and in NICU at Kasier Los Angeles.Could you please let us know the if this type of diagnosis is long term or if the child could have neurologic problems?
Avatar f tn When my 4 year old had RSV when he was 5 weeks old, also on a vent for 11 days, (he had RSV a second time when he was 2 1/2 in the hospital 5 days no vent.) they said he could end up having asthma. Every time we go see the pulmonologist *sorry if I spelled it wrong, they ask how often does he couh at night. None, doen't cough in the day time either only when he is sick. So from what I was told and understand it does sound like he has asthma.
172411 tn?1287086265 It was early summer and very strange for him to get it in June. We had a tough battle, but were lucky he was a big boy and a little older, Dr.said had he ben about 2 weeks younger, it could have been much worse. We were able to keep him out of the hospital, it got pretty scary for awhile. He would choke and gag when he coughed. We had to go in and have his oxygen level checked daily as he kept dipping below 89.
Avatar f tn RSV is more prevelant those months but can happen any month and is very dangerous for a newborn. My son had it at 2 weeks and being told about intubation, medovac and permenant lung damage is not worth it.

Avatar n tn My older son got it as well from daycare, but he was around 4 months old at the time. RSV can look like a cold in older kids, or you may not notice it at all. Please be careful. I would pay it in a heartbeat. We have had so many x-rays, blood tests,'s been really expensive and the meds he's on are crazy. He's on steroids again, plus the highest dose you can get on an inhaler, plus nebs, antibiotics, acid reflux don't want to be here.
Avatar n tn From what I understand, RSV is a viral infection that is usually present in hospitals. My son has had it while in the hospital for an extended period. As with any just about every virus, RSV is infectius. RSV is not a life time infection or causes any lasting effect, as far as I know. Your grandson probubly had a feveral seizure. As a parent, I don't know for sure, but this is what I have thought RSV is.
Avatar m tn Can RSV cause cardiac arrest in a child with passed myocarditis and would he qualify to recieve rsv shot to prevent him from getting it.
Avatar f tn If a person does not have RSV can they cause an infant to get RSV just by having a common cold
377012 tn?1283965435 can give some more answers as to why he keeps getting RSV every 20-30 days!! He may get referred to a pulminologists!!!!!!!
363110 tn?1340920419 t send him home if RSV is running around the hospital and he can be sent with a PICC line in place anywayse....
