284738 tn?1283106819 he just got his 3rd and last synagis until rsv season starts back up again in october. the good news is, rsv season is almost over. unfortunately, our little ones got it at the very end. :( i know it's still out there even when it's not in season, but it's not as bad... hope your little one gets better soon!!
551885 tn?1300383822 Last month was supposed to be the last but they called a couple of weeks ago and told us that half the kids that are coming in sick are testing positive for RSV and if Cassidy got it she would go back to the NICU again so I guess this month will be the last.
Avatar f tn That's so scary!!!!!! I didn't even know what RSV was until I read forums about preemies going out. Now I'm freaking out!!! My son was born early and he always breathes fast then slow. He's working on regulating his breathing so I can't tell if that's his normal breathing or not. A lot of the symptoms are stuff that he does normally so it's extra scary. In Hawaii the rsv season is November to April and he was born November 14.
Avatar n tn I kept my preemies in relative isolation until they were 2 months adjusted age, but that's because we were entering cold season. When you do venture out, bring purell with you and ask folks to use it before handling the baby. Good luck!
224256 tn?1212257023 I had to take my son out at only 2 wks (grocery store), but I waited until I knew he'd be sleeping and then covered his carrier on the cart with a receiving blanket so that nobody would breathe on him or touch him. People asked, but I said he was sleeping and I'd rather not disturb him. Just be sure to then thoroughly wash your hands with antibacterial soap after being out in public and opening doors/touching cash/pushing a shopping cart.
Avatar f tn 4 weeks ago I noticed a yellowish bump on my throat. My child had RSV and a co-worker had strep which I had been exposed to. I also started a new CPAP machine therapy at a much higher pressure than I had previously. I had been feeling dizzy and had a mild sore throat and mailasie. 10 days ago I went to doctor who swabbed my throat and put me on antibiotic even though strep test was negative. I completed the treatment but the bump has not gone away.
Avatar n tn The Synagis shot is injected into the leg muscle, once a month, during RSV season, which last from November thru April. 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.
192918 tn?1199451179 My boys too. Carson got pneumonia at 11 weeks, Cameron got RSV at 10 weeks. We were pretty much screwed from then on. Carson outgrew it by 3, the weren't sure he would due to family history and how bad it was. Around 2 it was much better and only triggered when he got sick, by 3 we were done and haven't had to neb anymore, he's 4 now and doing great. He's got a bad cold, but his airways are fine. Cameron is 9 months too and we have had a tough time with him.
Avatar f tn My 11 week has rsv .. He was full term .. Has any other mother had this in a infant ..
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 f tn Finally a few days ago i took him in again to the ER n they found out he has a virus newborns have been getting its Called Rsv n if they would have tested it before they would have found it i was So pissed!!! So now today we got out of the childerns hospital they sent him home with oxygen but to me he still seems bad but they that he was Fine!!
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.
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???
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.
1368291 tn?1299629804 Saturday he was having lots of nasal congestion and coughing so I took him to the ER. He tested positive for RSV so the last few days have been scary. We are doing a cool mist humidifier with eucalyptus oil at night, albuterol breathing treatments and keeping his nose suctioned out. I hope he gets better soon but I did learn that apparently you cant trust family to let you know...
368461 tn?1291515587 Baby zpack is only 3 days and one does a day. I tell you - cold season is the PITS! They also gave her an inhaler to break up the RSV brochiliaititis. When we were at the DRs yesterday - the DR said "ok ready to check your ears" and she COVERED HER EARS. LOL. Then she let go and after the DR checked she said "ok all done!" and so Hayden CLAPPED and SMILED. We were laughing. It was like she understood. So now we keep asking "where are your ears".
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 I would also have a few masks lying around for guests with a cough. Rsv season isn't quite over yet and it can be deadly to babies!
1556646 tn?1294521754 Every few months (4 times in 2010 and now the first is 2011) that lower eyelid swells up. It happens within minutes, seems to irritate him a little (he will then rub it) and goes away within a few hours. He doesn't have any known allergies. I'm starting to track his history/diet in the 24 hours leading up to these episodes, but nothing seems to show a pattern. It's always that eye, never the other, so I feel pretty sure it's tied to the bump somehow.
Avatar f tn RSV is one thing that I am really worried about. That is why I have taken Anna to the doctor 3 different times for the same cough. They always say her lungs are clear and have never even mentioned RSV to me. She feels fine during the day and is eating well. She has no fever and isn't seeming to have trouble breathing. Do you think she could still have RSV? My reason for not going back to the doctor is that where I live, flu and a serious stomach virus are really bad.
Avatar f tn I just had my beautiful son on Nov 30 th! And already he is sick! My baby was taking to hospital 3days ago. And I found out he had RSV it's a viral affection u get from being around someone sick. My daughter had a bad cold and I assuming he got it from his big sissy which is only 1 by the way but it's sad because how do u tell ur 1 old to stay away from there baby brother.
220217 tn?1209679677 Update - the preliminary test showed a very faint positive RSV test. They are doing a spinal tap now. I feel so horrible. What did I do wrong and what can I do to help him? :( Very sad!!
Avatar n tn there are shots that the babies get once a month called synagisis (not sure if I am spelling it right) but they get it to help LESSEN the affects of RSV. insurance companies do usually cover them the shots are once a month for the winter season and they get it for the first 2 years of their lives. my son got RSV when he was 5 weeks old, he didn't get his first shot yet and he was really really ill.
