Rsv in older kids

Common Questions and Answers about Rsv in older kids


Avatar n tn you also might want to ask your cardiologist or primary doctor about if your little one should recieve the synagis vaccine. this is to help lesson the effects of RSV (this is a viral infection) most kids can fight it off, if they are healthy to begin with. i am not sure if your little one would qualify. I wouldn't see why not. this infection from what I was toldif it affects newborns who are premmeis have a heart condition, lung issues and a low immune system.
Avatar f tn t have much of a choice. Hopefully my mom can come cuz I know kids are not allowed in the room during the actual birth.
Avatar f tn Aww thats really cute all 3 of my kids have to kids my belly goodnight before they go to bed!
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 My son had rsv and the hospital kept him and thankfully we were released in a few hours because his breathing was better.its scary to do that at home, honestly they should of kept him he's only an infant ! Please contact a doctor I honestly don't think he should be home my son was two months old when he had it, and my husband ask if we can go home with him and they told us some pretty scary stuff .

Avatar f tn They said she had RSV, they could either suck some snot out and test it and tell me she has RSV, or just tell me she has it and the treatment will be the same - her cough was also barky (croup like) at night, so she told me to wrap her up and sit outside and let her breathe in the cold air. I hope its not RSV, but if it is a mild case and isnt in her lungs and she is eating and drinking ok, they probably wont do anything anyway.
Avatar m tn I have a four month old son who got RSV along with the whole household in early February. We live at altitude (7200) feet, but the baby did well--- one night of observation in the hospital, where his O2 sats were 96-97 when he was being held or was upright, but would fall when sleeping or laying down into the mid-80s. So, he went on oxygen. Two months later he is still failing every overnight oxygen study in order to get him off nighttime oxygen.
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....
Avatar f tn it is not up to her to change up weekends. If your ex does not want his visitation that weekend he needs to tell you. You then need to document that he gave up his visitation for that week, then you find someone else to keep an eye on your daughter while you go have baby. then he can wait till his weekend rolls around again to see your daughter.
4437866 tn?1388119624 Then within an hour he went from happy to me asking him not to put nerf darts in his mouth to shooting them at me. Lets say he is in his room yelling at the top of his lungs he hates me and wants a new mom.. im almost to the point of tears i.dont know what to do. I will not yell at him or.spank.him because i feel it does nothing. I keep my tone normal amd tell him i love him daily.any advice would be helpful.
Avatar f tn at his ribs. (this is called nasal flaring and retraction. (my kids can nasal gflare without being in respiratory distress. if he is making a noise like his is bearing down to poop (sorry I know that is gross) but hs isn't pooping when he is doing this. that is called grunting. most likely he is going to vomit and it will be very mucusy. Just try to keep his mose clear. also if he stops feeding and his diapers are dry he is propablly dehydrated.
148691 tn?1260194903 I'm so sorry RSV stinks. My little guy got RSV 2 winters ago and was in the hospital for over a week with it. Just keep a close eye on her and if you see things getting worse take her back in right away. It's common but can turn ugly quickly. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I just had my beautiful son on Nov 30 th! And already he is sick! My baby was taking to hospital 3days ago. And I found out he had RSV it's a viral affection u get from being around someone sick. My daughter had a bad cold and I assuming he got it from his big sissy which is only 1 by the way but it's sad because how do u tell ur 1 old to stay away from there baby brother.
Avatar f tn I went to my 18 wk sonogram yesterdayand told doc my 14 month old has rsv. A respitory virus and that now i have cold like symptoms and a rash on my face. She said i coukd have parvo and they drew blood to find out for sure but i don't have results yet. She says my baby can become anemic and can need a blood transfusion while in the womb. I am so terrified.
163557 tn?1244112942 Brady was discharged on February 16...9 days after his due date, after 132 days in the NICU..weighing 6 lbs 5 ounces! He came home w an NG tube because he can't quite finish all of his bottles yet. I learned to put it in at the hospital so we could just have him home!! We are still not out of the woods for his eyes yet. We have to make weekly visits to Houston for now. The dr. seems to think it just may take a while for the retinas to go back we'll wait!
Avatar f tn Hello, my daughter, age 3, had a bronchoscopy and CT scan after repeated bouts of pneumonia in the same spot, right middle lobe. This all started after a severe RSV/pneumonia hospitalization as an infant. Her CT scan was read as "mild bronchiectasis" in the right middle lobe, same spot as her atelectasis. We know for sure that her last bout of pneumonia in march never fully cleared, b/c we did X-rays every 3 months. So she's had this atelectasis spot for quite awhile now.
Avatar f tn m a stay at home mom so I know how to get these kids to sit and stop and to be in labor while I get these kids to settle down is just something I don't wanna do. So to avoid stress on myself they're going to grandmas. But if you only have 1 child and under 2 it should be easier cause then maybe he could nap thru it. But definitely check with hospital.
1072551 tn?1258203266 But yes getting prednisone (sp)or albuteral for treatment of asthma will cause weight gain. I was in the hospital sicker than a dog for a week. I barely ate anything and I came out 15 lbs heaveier because of the steriods:-( It took awhile but I lost it. I dont think your DD will but I could be wrong. She will slow down on her weight gain soon anyways. I dont think my kids gained much of anything between 12-18 months, lol.
Avatar f tn That's so scary!!!!!! I didn't even know what RSV was until I read forums about preemies going out. Now I'm freaking out!!! My son was born early and he always breathes fast then slow. He's working on regulating his breathing so I can't tell if that's his normal breathing or not. A lot of the symptoms are stuff that he does normally so it's extra scary. In Hawaii the rsv season is November to April and he was born November 14.
Avatar n tn ll keep you posted - good luck!! Keep me posted as well. Sounds like our little kids have a lot in common.
220217 tn?1209679677 After a c-section most Dr's recommend not getting pregnant for 1 year. Good luck!
192918 tn?1199451179 My 9 mo old was in the hospital last night because she got a cold that moved into her chest. The congestion was making it hard for her to breathe. She was diagnosed with reactive airway disease (RAD), which I guess is similar to asthma, but since they can't test for asthma at this age they call it RAD. Anyway, this is the second time since September that she's been in the hospital for this. Poor kid can't get a common cold without having problems breathing...
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 f tn My 11 week has rsv .. He was full term .. Has any other mother had this in a infant ..
