Rsv in the lungs

Common Questions and Answers about Rsv in the lungs


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 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 That neither was the case makes it highly likely that your daughter did not die of RSV infection of the lungs. With RVS infection of the central nervous system, involvement of the center that controls breathing might have been a factor. The tone of your message suggests to me that it might be important to your emotional well-being to know, with reasonable certainty, the cause(s) of your daughter’s death.
765043 tn?1234583003 m afraid of is it the right time to do this even though his lungs are cloudy. Could he be over the rsv. And maybe his lungs are like that because of the phnemonia. Someone please help. I have faith and hope in the lord Jesus Christ. I know he will be fine. He is obviously getting better. But any inpt or advice would help.
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 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.
172826 tn?1423422956 well his fever was low grade but still a fever and he had the same liquid come up at daycare and after seeing the dr.. anyways the dr said...well the dr at the clinic said his lungs were perfectly clear...but yet he's wheezing alot and gurgling noises from his chest however that both his ears were sligh ear infections and that was probably why the fever came on...
765043 tn?1234583003 And his oxegyn went as low as 64. or 61. They had him on the bag until it stayed up on his own with the ventilater. Does anyone have any input. Please pray everyone!
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 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 n tn Since then he gets sick nearly on a monthly basis with colds that settle in his lungs and ends up with RSV and/or pnuemonia. This year so far: January 09 he had double ear infection was on antibiotics. Feb. 09 he had RSV and pnuemonia right lung spend night in ICU due low oxygen saturation and he was on antiobiotics. Mar 09 he has pnuemonia in the left lung and is on antibiotics.....AGAIN. He always has a runny nose that eventually ends in colds, bronchitis, or some form of pulmonary problem.
Avatar f tn In the end, after begging the coroner to figure out what went wrong, and after enlightening him with the problems we had had with that sitter, and our suspicions with her, he basically told us she kept the same story, and that everything checked out fine in the autopsy, except that they found RSV on her brain. By the way, the police never contacted us, and to our knowledge, never questioned the sitter. I was never given my daughter's actual time of death, either.
1636573 tn?1300257994 My baby was born DEc 30th premature. I was 34 weeks he was in NICU for 3 weeks. 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.
377012 tn?1283965435 My son has been sick for 2 weeks now and his RSV test came back positive yesterday....his doctor did a chest x-ray and found patches on his lungs and thought that it may be pneumonia! he has to go back today at 2pm for more tests and if it is pneumonia then he has to be sent almost 2 hours away to see another doctor because she is unable to admit him to the is rsv different from pneumonia!!!????
1347128 tn?1333810296 her doctor said that the next cold she gets it would most likely turn into the RSV again. but they gave her benadril. her doctor told me to get a humidifier and put it in the same room as the baby and turn or you could also turn on the hot water and get it steamy in there while you have your baby in there and that could help also, i did both of those thing with her and it helped alot!!
Avatar n tn Although you feel it in your back, it may be coming from your lungs. This raises the question of a problem in your lungs due to the bronchitis you had 2 years ago, such as bronchiectasis.
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?
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 .
284738 tn?1283106819 let the room become like a sauna the mositure in air will relieve her lungs...leave when the water rurns cold....your not standing in the shower just in the bathroom....also cut her formula with water for a few days and encourage juice ....too much formula does increas mucous..
1098713 tn?1262912066 Hot shower - steam for the lungs. Stretching in the shower to loosen lungs and shoulders.
377012 tn?1283965435 10-17-08-----started running back-to-back fevers of 104-105! 10-18-08-----took him to doc and RSV was positive with possible pneumonia!!! 10-19-08-----took him back to docs for another review and x-ray shows patches on his lungs, so he does have RSV and Pneumonia...on top of that he is getting a viral infection!!!! this past week and a 1/2 has been the worst of all, i just wish he could hurry up and get rid of all of this, but i must be patient and continue getting him better!
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 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 n tn The conducting airways of the lungs (bronchi and bronchioles) are to be distinguished from the portions of the lungs where gas exchange occurs (alveoli). The bronchi and bronchioles (excepting that portion of the bronchioles immediately adjacent to the alveoli) are tubes surrounded by smooth muscle. When this muscle constricts in response to neural impulses and chemical mediators, bronchospasm results and air flow, particularly expiratory air flow, is impeded. Wheezing is often produced.
Avatar n tn The issue with COVID is not just that patients are not getting enough oxygen. In most cases the lungs are filled with fluid. No amount of oxygen will allow fluid-filled lungs to absorb the oxygen.
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 ve been reading your post and researching a bit to see if I can be of help, as your child sounds quite ill in his lower respiratory tract. The RSV can be a serious virus in young children. Were you told much about it? Did the pulmonologist (hopefully you're seeing a specialist!) explain why he/she thinks your son was having these difficulties? Usually a full term baby - even one with asthma doesn't have so many other respiratory disorders.
Avatar m tn I was in the ER a year ago because I felt like I was suffocating to death, and was hearing crackles in my chest. RSV B virus according to the nasal aspiration test lab results. (RSV-a pleasant way to die-you slowly suffocate but don't have any of the nasal sinus throat pain that comes with flu.) Xrays were negative but oxygenation rate was 85% and they gave me oxygen and an Albuterol nebulizer treatment, discharged home with antibiotics and an inhaler.
