Common Questions and Answers about Rsv in preemies

rsv

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 f tn CJ was very similar as a newborn, turns out when we all went to get out flu shots when he was an infant, he picked up RSV, which is essentially a persistent cold in infants and generally only causes problems with preemies or otherwise immunosuppressed infants. His simply presented as a persistent slew of cold symptoms and a chronic productive cough. Anyway, it caused me a great deal of grief, though admittedly CJ seemed less bothered by it than I was.
284738 tn?1283106819 he just got his 3rd and last synagis until rsv season starts back up again in october. the good news is, rsv season is almost over. unfortunately, our little ones got it at the very end. :( i know it's still out there even when it's not in season, but it's not as bad... hope your little one gets better soon!!
551885 tn?1300383822 Last month was supposed to be the last but they called a couple of weeks ago and told us that half the kids that are coming in sick are testing positive for RSV and if Cassidy got it she would go back to the NICU again so I guess this month will be the last.
220217 tn?1209679677 I loved Mylicon, but still didn't help my boys sleep, did quiet some of the screaming and crying. I hope it continues to work wonders for you! We have battled RSV, and the vaccine isn't offered to all kiddos. I think they only offer it to preemies or high risk kiddos, they have to really do some paperwork to push it through insurance. My boys were term and big, so we were not concerned. Carson got pneumonia at 11 weeks, Cameron got RSV at 10 weeks.
Avatar n tn Did you decide to get the RSV shots for your baby? And are they going to be in daycare or exposed to other children alot? We only have 3 kids in the family that she would be around, and not if they are sick. Just looking for advice, sorry this got so long, and thanks for taking the time to read it and give advice!
Avatar n tn So I took my DD to the docotr yesterday due to severe chest congestion, she also has a very runny nose and a fever. Well he did a nose swab on her because he thinks she might have RSV. HAs anybody out there experienced with any of thier children or know of somebody who has. I am still waiting for the docotr to call with the results but she seems to be getting worse. I looked some onfo on the internet but you guys on here are so informative so I thought I would ask.
Avatar n tn My twin sister and I were preemies and had to stay in the hospital for about a month after we were born. We were always tall for our age until high school, played sports, and even walked early.
Avatar f tn I was pregnant with twins. Lost my son at 23 weeks. Delivered my daughter at 27weeks. She'll be 2 in aug. We were in the NICU for 3 months. You can expect baby to get a couple blood transfusions and be on a ventilator for at least a month. Feeding tube for almost your whole stay. Any other questions just ask. :) everything will be fine. The alarms will scare the crap out of you every time. Dont worry. Nurse comes in every time it goes off.
5752933 tn?1383533437 I had my daughter at 34 weeks due to low fluid. She weighed 5lbs 9.9oz and was completely fine and healthy.
Avatar f tn I was born a month early, I only weighted 4 LBS 9 Oz, and I was discharged after 24 hours, but my mom had some complications during the birth so she had to stay for 2 weeks in the hospital, which meant so did I.
Avatar n tn I feel for you. We were in the hospital twice with RSV last winter with our little guy. He has NO effects and the doctors have said nothing about long term effects. It's scary seeing them on oxygen and it's true, it just has to run it's course. They will probably keep you a few days after he IS well to monitor him. They did with our little guy anyway. Our little guy does have asthma but it's a mild case and I have never been told it was related to RSV.
Avatar f tn Has anyone had a preemie in the nnicu for an extended period of time?
Avatar f tn If you think you may be going into labor early, get checked. But usually past 24 weeks the baby is viable, with a LOT of help, and depending on the hospital and equipment, my doctor said (I'm 29 weeks) if my daughter was born now she'd have a long stay in the NICU but she'd probably make it.
Avatar f tn Those babies are usually fine and are in the hospital for at longest a week so they can make sure they know how to eat. My son was a preemie. As far as weight every baby is different if I were to guess I would say around 4 and a half pounds.
Avatar f tn im now 19 weeks iv had 2 dr vistis but only seen my dr at my first check up i was so excited i didnt ask much. As the weeks go by i so scaerd im going to go in labour early and cant wait to hit tge safe zone. I do know my cirvixs are scared but not much more.
Avatar n tn she will be 6 years old july 13th (she was born on a friday the 13th) she is the tallest kid in her class she is also the only kid in her class that can already read. She is only in kindergarten. Her teacher is so amazed with her. From what the doc told me almost all premies catch up with all the kids there age by a year old.

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.
