rsv

Avatar n tn The vaccine has been shown to be effective in preventing and/or reducing the severity of RSV infections and the number of hospitalizations each year. Infants who are a product of multiple births, have lung disease, low birth weight, heart disease, and those born prematurely are at a higher risk to contract a serious form of Resipritory Syncytial Virus.
Avatar n tn HI MY CHILD WAS RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH AUTISTIC SPECTRUM DISORDER (ASD), BUT THE NEUROLOGIST ALSO TOLD ME THAT THE MRI SHOWED BRAIN SCARRING. I AM TERRIBLY CONCERNED FOR MY CHILD. I AM CURRENTLY AWAITING A SECOND OPINION. BUT WHAT KIND OF DISEASE COULD BRAIN SCARRING BE? HE HASN'T HAD A BRAIN INJURY HE ONLY HAD RSV WHEN HE WAS A NEWBORN OTHER THEN THAT HE IS RELATIVELY HEALTHY.
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 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 You should ask his doctor if there is any sign of lung damage from the RSV. The good news is that, in most instances of RSV resulting in frequent bouts of croup or other respiratory infection, that frequent lung problems with fever are eventually “outgrown.” Definitely seek answers to your questions from his doctor and, if not satisfied with the responses, request consultation with a pediatric lung specialist.
Avatar f tn The thing is he have been admitted , the doctor gave a breathing machine for home .. He seem to be doing fine but its only day four .. The cough and running nose it's as bad ..
Avatar m tn Can Rsv cause cardiac arrest in a child who has past myocarditis? My son had viral myocarditis at 7 months and got rsv at 2 two weeks later passed away. And with his passed medical history should they have done something different like check his heart?
Avatar m tn Her boogers are bright green and she gets this rash on her cheeks and nose. No fever though. I use a humidifier during the day but in the night I use a vaporizer which seems to help her sleep better. I suction her mucus from her nose as well. Hopefully this goes away soon. It is so hard to see your little one not feeling well.
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 f tn s starting to sound a little junky but not terrible. Will take him in to see his Ped if he still remains the same in the morning.
1189189 tn?1264549687 At times antiviral drugs are given if the symptoms do not settle down. In serious cases the patient is admitted in hospital and kept on supportive measures such as ventilators. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please consult your physician if you are not improving. Take care!

377012 tn?1283965435 has been back and forth to the doctor with allergies, asthma, and other complications such as RSV he has been diagnosed with RSV twice in the past 3 months the last time was 6 weeks ago, and it has cleared up since! this morning he started coughing, having a runny nose, discharge from his eyes and wet coughing as well....i was just wanting to know how i could tell if he has fluid in his lungs????
Avatar f tn Im in the same position with this being my second child imccurrently 38+4
Avatar n tn Respiratory sounds often help direct attention to the specific part of the airway from which the sound emanates. A true croupy cough arises at least in part from the trachea between the vocal cords and the thoracic inlet (opening into the chest). Although your daughter was intubated only for a short time perhaps the trachea is narrowed a bit because of unavoidable injury from the endotracheal tube. There are other causes of tracheal narrowing.
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.
377012 tn?1283965435 well, i know i should post in the maternal and child forum but i know most of u and most of u have children already so here goes!!!!!!!! my 2 1/2 yr. old has asthma and allergies.....had a flu shot on the 11th.......on the 17th he started wheezing, breathing rapidly, running a fever of 102.6...18th ne started getting diarrhea, nasal congestion along with the other symptoms, last night he began vomiting and his cough sounds croupy....could this be from the flu shot or could it be pneumonia...
765043 tn?1234583003 A cyst in his lever because of abuse from the hospital. The tube that was in his tummy got misplaced to his lever and eventually he formed a cyst. He has had to blood transfusions. One at the nicu after birth because of his anemia. One here because of the same reason. I'm hoping once he gets out of this he'll grow out of it. Like he was never sick. Im afraid he'll develope some kind of lung disease. My question to all this is that he got better. His lungs were clouded and cleared.
Avatar n tn My son is going to be 2 months old soon and a couple of days after he was born they told me he has RSV, i have been in and out of the hospital so many times and he dose not seem to be getting any better. I have read everybody stories and How they lost their loved ones and i am so scared that it might happen to my son. Please is there anything that i can do to prevent this from getting worse???
Avatar m tn My friend's son was recently hospitalized and diagnosed with RSV, double pneumonia, and staph in the lungs. He has been in ICU for about a week and I'm wondering how long he could possibly stay in the hospital.
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 RSV is a respiratory virus , infecting the linings of the airways starting from the nose down to the lungs , making them inflamed and congested over a limited period of time after which the natural immunity of the body kicks in and helps the airways shed off the sick lining that was infected , replacing it with new healthy tissue that is able to defend itself against any additional virus load . This may take up to 2 weeks but most symptoms disappear in 5-7 days .
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 m so excited to give birth but the nerves are starting to set in.. Not only about labor but also about taking care of my little one. Anyone else experiencing this?
