Rsv lung disease

Common Questions and Answers about Rsv lung disease


Avatar f tn My 3 month old daughter was diagnosed with a phnumathormax and staph in her right lung. She also tested pos for rsv. They are not sure what caused the phnumathormax, or if could reaccure. She is starting to cough again so she is on atibiotics again and has been referred to a lung doctor. The only way this was detected was from an x-ray. Her lungs gave no sign from them listening to her. What could cause these air pockets to accure again if they should, and could the staph come from the rsv?
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 n tn I have a daughter who was born with Chronic Lung Disease. 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.
765043 tn?1234583003 My son is 2 months. He has RSV. On top of that hehas pnemonia and Broncialitis. I am concerned. He has been on life support for a week exactly today. They have him on antibiotics for infection for phnemonia. ANd they say the rsv has to run it's course. But of course he is getting treatments. Such as pounding, suctionning after his IPV treatments. He had already been in the NICU after giving birth to him for 3 1/2 weeks. He had premaure lungs. 35 weeks old at birth. Jaundice. 1 apnea spell.
Avatar n tn that characteristically presents as a high fever , profuse mucoid /watery nasal discharge , cough , sneezing and occasionally wheezing or even elements of breathing difficulty , depending on how severe the inflammation is . The illness is clearly worse if the infant was premature with lung disease , a generalized muscle weakness ,a congenital heart disease or a problem with the immune system .On the other hand , a healthy infant would recover completely from this infection .
1690584 tn?1340297472 Savannah was admitted to the hospital for RSV, Bronchitis, Ear Infection. Stayed until Saturday but was released earlier then she should have been due to Christmas. Her oxygen levels were still not staying up high but she is now doing better. She does have a partial collapse of the right lung and they want to no check her heart due to some blue around the mouth.
Avatar f tn I am so sorry to hear about your little one. If she still has lung infiltrates probably the RSV is still persisting. Other possibilities are localized pneumonia, croup, bronchiolitis, bronchitis and asthma. It would be good if her eosinophil status is seen. Often a high eosinophil count causes lung infiltrates and poor ability to handle colds. You will be consulting a chest specialist soon. Until then the possibility of persisting RSV and high eosinophil count should be looked into.
Avatar f tn It could be a rare case, as RSV as the name implies usually affects the lungs. But the hypoxia due to the lung infection caused by RSV can consequently affect the brain. It is difficult to comment beyond this. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn had open heart surgery and lung disease have to be on h2o
1580085 tn?1400940838 i am a bit down today, and posted on the copd forum, my copd is steadily getting worse and drs. dont seem interested at all, i never used to even think about breathing, i just did it, now i feel every breath i take, and not in a good way. every day i feel it, i just wish i could go for a long walk or run, but i must buck up! i am clean , and alive!
Avatar n tn The most common cause of bronchiolitis is a virus called respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), most commonly occurring in epidemics in late fall and winter each year. RSV affects almost all infants. Bronchiolitis can be a severe disease, but only about 1% of affected children require hospitalization. Premature infants and infants with underlying heart and lung disease are most at risk for severe, even life-threatening infections.
Avatar n tn My daughter is six years old and has been complaining about lung pain on and off for some time. Recently it became a little more severe. She has had pneumonia twice, and bronchiolitis five or six times. She has also had the croop and another lung problem at nine months but I can't remember the name of it. It may have been called RSV. I don't have health insurance and I want to directly to the appropriate doctor and not waste time or money with a referral.
Avatar n tn Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is similar to the influenza virus that causes the flu. In infants and young children it can cause lung infections such as bronchiolitis or pneumonia. RSV infections happen over a period of time. They usually start with what appears as a cold and goes into a cough. Children respond in differing ways and differing levels of severity to this infection.
Avatar n tn I am having pain in my right lower lung area.I dont have a cough and do not smoke.I have fatigue,muscle pains.I have had HRCT Pulmonary Dr said I had some trapped air but he said the lung itself will not have pain excep Pluria.He is wanting to send me to a Infectious Disease Dr and then do a VAT Biopsy.Shoul I do the Vatt first.I have had all kinds of blood work all been clear.
Avatar n tn my daughter was born 8 weeks early in an emergency she was ok but had minor bruising on her arm,apart from a few common problems,she was healthy,and came home after 3 weeks,then she caught bronchillities (spelt wrong)she was in hospital for nearly 2 weeks to help her breath,they said her right lung collapsed,she came home better but still coughing then a week or so later she stoped breathing on us,i managed to get her breathing again,and she was rushed to hospital,where they said she still has t
Avatar n tn Acute bronchiolitis is mainly a viral disease. Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) causes more than 50% of cases. Bronchiolitis can also be due to parainfluenza, adenovirus, Mycoplasma, and occasionally other viruses. Recovery usually takes 7 to 10 days. Antibiotics do not treat viral infections. There is no evidence that bacteria are a cause. However this may be followed by a bacterial infection. Antibiotics do treat bacterial infections.
Avatar n tn He was okay to come home then he was 5 weeks old and got really ill with the RSV and was in the hospital and then heart failure then the surgery then infection and more illness. he does have pulmomary issues partly because my hubby has asthma and the ithers they are saying is from bing on a ventilator at such a young age. Please make sure he gets the synagisis shot.(it helps lesson the rsv in a child with a heart issue and premature babies.
Avatar f tn they start out with congestion and then a cough which has lead to bronchitis,pneumonia,and rsv?which out of those 6 months each one has had pneumonia,with rsv together and by itself?and my 2yearold has had bronchitis more? I keep taking em to their pediatrician and our hospitals ER and they just continue antibiotics with breathing treatments and steriods?what should i do?
306245 tn?1244384967 This latter would require either a cardiac shunt from right to left or other lung disease superimposed on his asthma. It appears that some of his problems have been resolved, in whole or part, including his congenital heart disease. You have described wheezing. If his pulmonologist does not believe that he has asthma, to what does he/she attribute the wheezing?
Avatar n tn I wrote not long ago concerning my daughter dying of RSV complicated by bacterial brochopneumonia. I finally got the microscopic examination back and it confirmed what the protocol stated. I guess the only thing I would like to know is "WAS ANY OF THIS DETECTABLE?????" Brooklynn was very health, but developed a cold that the doctor(Monday) stated he thought her ear infection was her problem.
