Avatar n tn the doctor said there was an enlargement and he thinks it may have been due to a vessel when my son was younger. he had RSV when he was two months old. he has never been operated on. do heart enlargements disappear? do they affect my sons life in anyway? and, should I be worried?
Avatar n tn Some w/ ear inf., others with RSV, and some with bronchiolitis. My son has not been that sick. He has had two bouts of bronchiolitis (9mths apart)and a sinus infection, all in one year. He has had congestion that he can't get rid of and a cough ( not nearly as bad as others I have read). Although sometimes his cough makes him vomit. I guess my question is this.....Could he have been misdiagnosed? Or are there less severe symptoms that go along with RAD? Please help!
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 AND HE BEGAN GETTING SYNAGIS SHOTS IN OCTOBER(THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO HELP PREVENT RSV)AND HE GOT RSV IN FEB. I DONT TAKE HIM MANY PLACES AND DONT ALLOW HIM AROUND OTHER CHILDREN.

Avatar n tn having a simple clear runny nose and occasional cough that can be treated at home, to severe difficulty breathing that may require hospitalization. Other symptoms might include a low-grade fever, sore throat, headache, and irritability. Younger children, especially those under 2 or 3 years old, are most at risk for more severe symptoms, such as high fever, wheezing, difficulty breathing, a persistent cough, or apnea. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn She went for a follow-up xray yesterday and still has pneumonia, but no symptoms. We are scared! What could this be? We are waiting to see a pediatric pulmonologist but I need help!
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.
Avatar n tn 10 week old - adm. with RSV..1 yr old - adm. with RSV...1 yr old - adm. with bronchitis..2 yr old - adm. with neumonia, then for colapsed lung, then for double pneumonia. Everytime it was between Nov. and Feb. Then, on Sat. Sept. 8th he developed a fever with no other symptoms. The fever lasted until Sun. evening. I started giving him albuteral and took him to the doctors on Mon.The doc said his lungs were clear and the fever gone but had ulcers in his mouth.
Avatar f tn When my 4 year old had RSV when he was 5 weeks old, also on a vent for 11 days, (he had RSV a second time when he was 2 1/2 in the hospital 5 days no vent.) they said he could end up having asthma. Every time we go see the pulmonologist *sorry if I spelled it wrong, they ask how often does he couh at night. None, doen't cough in the day time either only when he is sick. So from what I was told and understand it does sound like he has asthma.
Avatar f tn RSV is a very serious complication with children under the age of 2, but it can affect anyone. It is a severe upper respiratory infection. If you've taken her to get checked out she has a clean bill of health, trust your docs! They take RSV very seriously. My newborn niece had RSV. She had a rattly cough in her lungs and had to have breathing treatments.
1675651 tn?1304277523 A developmental pediatrician was what I would suggest as well. With all that he has going on, a geneticist might also be worth contacting. Be prepared for a long wait to see the developmental pediatrician if you go to someone who takes insurance.
473385 tn?1283914323 My daughter is 2 yrs old and has vlcadd (fatty oxidation disorder) and they think it is mild form which doesnt have cardiac involvment but she has been having really high bp readings.
Avatar f tn My 4 year old daughter has had loose, tarry looking, watery stools since she was 18 months old. She's also had chronic pneumonia, RSV, and bronchitis. We see a pulmonary specialist who's tested her for cystic fibrosis and other immune disorders which all came back normally. We were referred to a pediatric gastroentrologist, who ran numerous tests and ruled out everything. He checked the amount of fat in her stools as well, which was normal. I am at a loss.
Avatar n tn My 6 month old son has been wheezing since he was six weeks old. He sounds as if he has a stuffy nose, but there is nothing there, and he also has a hacking cough. He is usually very quiet when sleeping, and when he is awake his breathing is very heavy and noisy. When he first got this, the pediatrician admitted him to the hospital and tested him for RSV & FLU, both neg. She put him in a mist tank, which did not seem to help.
1743681 tn?1311222985 At 5 months old, she was diagnosed with RSV and for some reason, decided to quit growing. She dropped from the 50th percentile to < the 3rd in 1 month. She weighed approximately 16 pounds at 1 year of age. At 4 years old, she now weighs 31 pounds. This child has the metabolism of a hummingbird. She is ALWAYS hungry. Even though she is always eating, she never gains weight and she's been like this for quite awhile.
Avatar f tn s still within the age range of being at risk for getting RSV. Since his older brother had it when he was 9 months old it was so scary I dislike the winters because I fear every cold/cough they get. Has the RSV season begun already? My kids just started getting this cough, all of them have been just fine even my 3 yo until an hour ago...7pm. He has been breathing rapidly (53) since then but he doesn't have a fever or crying. He's sitting down now watching a video now.
Avatar n tn Maybe go for a second opinion. I would.. It very well could be RSV. My daughter has alot of the same symptoms and they are tryign to figure out what it is.. does he seem to be in distress when his lips turn blue... or does anything about him change when he has a fever... or coughing??? If your doctor isnt giving you proper advice. Go get a second opinion.
Avatar n tn Megan is off the vent during the day (unless she is recovering from a RSV or pneumonia). But, she still requires the vent pressure at night (sometimes a half a liter of oxygen when she is really tired). We only have ONE pediatric pulmonologist here in Wichita. We aren't convinced that Kansas is up on all the ways of vent weaning. This doctor claims that this process may take years and that Megan will have to go through 2 colds before she will take the trach out, etc..
Avatar n tn I am assuming that the WPW was ablated and if so then he is at low risk for recurrence of the SVT. If ablation was not undertaken, and he is on medications for prevention, then I would say he still can undergo routine day care with low risk of recurrence.

Avatar n tn 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. Doctors can listen to a patients breathing and usually make a pretty good analysis if they have bronchitis.
Avatar f tn Recoarcted at 8 mnths. Successfully catheterised at 8 mnths. She has had the RSV virus, and lots of respiratory infections, antibiotics, feeding problems. She is now 14.8 kg and has asthma. My main concern is her pressure gradient. It has gone up to 40. She has had some chest pain recently. She used to be hyperactive but is becoming more tired. We have another echo on Thursday. Is this pressure gradient significant? Am i looking at a Stent operation sometime?
