Common Questions and Answers about Rsv quickvue test

rsv

Avatar f tn CLIA is not a lab method or test, it's a series of regulations. I've worked in a CLIA lab before. It's only the actual test (IgG or IgM or QuickVue) that you need to know about and what your actual index values were for each test. Taking the same test multiple times over a short time span will not provide any guiding information. If your index values are in the low positive range you should absolutely have a HSV2 western blot done by the University of Washington.
Avatar m tn Hi, are you sure you mentioned the laboratory attendant to do a HIV test? RSV ( Respiratory synctial virus) is an antibody test that detects antibodies against RSV virus thats related to a respiratory infection. Lets wait till other experts comment on your query.
Avatar f tn THey tested her for RSV and i did not hear anything because of the holiday but they just called today and her RSV test came back possitive. They already prescribed her an inhaler is there anything else I can do. She is coughing ALOT.
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 f tn Has your doctor tested for RSV? I believe it's a mucus test and it takes a couple days to get results. It doesn't hurt to get a second opinion.
Avatar f tn I took my daughter in for a bad cough two weeks ago, her lungs were clear, but her cough was horrible and her nose was running completely clear. 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.
368785 tn?1270432283 Diagnosed with RSV and Bronchiolitis.
Avatar f tn they did Spinal tap, blood work, and urine test. All the cultures came out okay but blood work showed RSV positive. So they admitted my son and they had him on antibiotics before they found out he had RSV I guess for precaution. Sorry I wrote this backwards, (like not in order). Soo they checked his vitals every 4-6 hours I can't remember the time frame. And they kept deep suctioning his nose. Which BTW that is so important to do! Make sure you keep suctioning.
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 hospital.......how is rsv different from pneumonia!!!????
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 coughing...is this a true diagnoses or is she covering her tracks for treatment?
372328 tn?1214776427 I would suggest you take her in now, just to rule out RSV (peak season runs from Oct -March). It's a quick nose swab test. When my daughter was 9 mo old, she had similar symptoms and I wish i hadn't waited so long. She did have RSV and needed nebulizer treatments to help treat it. Had I waited another day or so, we probably would have ended up in the hospital. Don't mean to scare you, but RSV can be very serious in kids under 2.
Avatar m tn im a 36 year old male had a cold for a week then had unprotected oral sex with a friend who only recieved oral 3 times after his last test, i didnt swallow but what is the risk of oral sex. I got sick again this time needing antibiotics 3 days in i started to feel better but then had night sweats 4th day and feeling tired should i worry that something is wrong and how long should i wait to take a test????
Avatar n tn hard to believe that he had no blue around his lips), then they put him on oxygen and then they did the nasal test for rsv. the rsv test came back several hours later; positive. my son was not overly sick but his cough was horrible and he was not quite himself. he ended up staying in the hospital for eight days. if the doctors had not acted as quickly and responsibly as they did with our son, we could have ended up as unfortunate as you.
377012 tn?1283965435 RSV is a respiratory virus...my son's symptoms: cough, congestion, runny nose, breathing issues.....i do have a runny nose but i have had a runny nose off and on for 4 weeks now!!! my lmp was October 18th-21st light pink/brown discharge....sorta spotting but not enough to wear a panty liner!!! my husband and i have been having unprotected sex for sometime now and were actively ttc and decided to stop in october before my lmp..........i should start AF in 5 days....
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 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 If a person does not have RSV can they cause an infant to get RSV just by having a common cold
Avatar f tn Then fever up to 104 and deydration the next took her to the ER they put her on IVs but could not find whats wrong. She has a history of RSV could this be what it is again. I dont know what o do?
Avatar m tn my question is as follow, I engaged in unprotected anal sex, myself being the the TOP, with a man that at the time was unaware that he was Hiv positive, this continued for a month, on one occasion, during oral sex he then ejaculated without telling me and i got some in my mouth, after a few mins of looking for something to spit on i did so, at the time of this occurance, i had no open ulcers in muy mouth and my gums do not bleed even after flossing and brushing i have had 2 hiv test 1 a week af
490418 tn?1209523379 My 6yr old son died due to complication from RSV in Feb. 2008. He did get Synagis until his third winter. He was in the hospital for most of RSV season his first two years and did not get RSV. The next year we were denied Synagis due to the cost. He ended up on a vent in the PICU for a week. The following winter he spent 10 days in the hospital with RSV. This year he spent the first week in PICU and the next two week on Eccmo. He died on his 6th birthday. We never even heard of RSV IG.
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???
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.
593530 tn?1263847957 I brought Brody to his pediatrician last week because he was very congested. After a nose swab was tested it was determined that he has RSV. Since it's a virus it can't be treated with antibiotics, so she instructed me to get a cool mist humidifier and keep his nasal pasages clear by using saline solution. The only symptom he's had is the congestion. There's no fever, coughing, mucous coming out, etc.
