Rsv in the child care setting

Common Questions and Answers about Rsv in the child care setting


172411 tn?1287086265 ve worked in preschool for nearly twenty years and I see RSV every year in the kids - the doctor is right, it needs to work itself out - some of the children who end up in the hospital end up there due to parents who don't pay attention to symptoms and don't follow dr's advice or children with compromised immune systems and sometimes children who have existing respiratory issues such as asthma, etc.
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 f tn I was diagnosed with Fibro 5 months ago, my husband likes to have gatherings, cook outs, this usually go until 1-2-3 even 4 o'clock in the morning! I also suffer from migraine headaches, empty cella, anxiety, depression, OCD TO NAME A FEW!! I work full time and raise 5 teenagers! I have to sleep at least 8 hrs or I can't function!
Avatar n tn During the course of this viral infection, a child can develop a secondary bacterial infection. The symptoms of this infection can be more severe in nature than the RSV and lead to higher temperature and greater difficulty. This can happen quite quickly. The source of this infection could be from the ears or sinuses or directly into the lungs. I hope this helps answer some of your questions.

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 n tn I know that its not the same but we had to go through all of the oxygen and the bubble c pap and everything. With anything in the lungs of course you have the chance with Asthma. It doesnt necessarily mean it will happen but there is a chance. I will pray for you. right now the most important thing is that your little guy gets better. You can always talk to your doctor regarding preventions of asthma.
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 n tn Because obviously he's sick. Xopenex is used to treat and PREVENT bronchospasm in children and adults. Pulmicort is used to prevent and reduce symptoms (wheezing and shortness of breath) caused by asthma. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works directly in the lungs to make breathing easier by reducing the irritation and swelling of the airways. Amoxicillin is a antibiotic which a lot of times is used to treat bronchitis along with many other things.
Avatar m tn The needle that is stuck into the patient is not a risk, b/c any potential blood would be on the surface area of the needle (the outside)....any blood present in the BORE of the needle stays there. You do not INJECT anything INTO a person when drawing is all withdrawing. Even if there were to be a drop or 2 of blood on the SURFACE area of the would be exposed to air rendering the virus inactive. It is impossible to get infected in this manner.
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 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.
193609 tn?1292180293 They did a breathing treatment while we waited for the RSV test to come back. (he is getting the RSV vaccine) After the test came back negative we had to do another breathing treatment. They finally sent us home with a nebulizer and I have to give him a breathing treatment every 4 hours until we can get into the ped on monday!!! If its not one thing its another with this kid!!!!
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?
286776 tn?1268874332 Like I said, there are many good daycares with people who really do care about the kids. I know they show stuff on TV to scare us, but I believe they are in the minority. I hope any of this puts your mind at ease a little bit! I know it's hard to leave our little ones. Just take one day at a time. Take care. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn Can his smoking in the apartment lead to problems with the fetus, its development and motorskills while in the womb andonce born will the baby have signs of a "crack baby"? We argue about this. He claims he's going to stop at the end of this year. My due date is May 25th. Desperate for him to stop sooner.
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 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.
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 Im in the same position with this being my second child imccurrently 38+4
Avatar n tn He has all of the symptoms of RSV...they did the mucous test and said he has moderate case and that the ventolin and cortisone inhaler will help make him comfortable, although I am losing faith in his Dr. since I was the one that was showing the most concern for an answer. We have been in to see her once a week for 12 weeks...he has ran 2 very high fevers that lasted days each one, along with crying when this a true diagnoses or is she covering her tracks for treatment?
