Common Questions and Answers about Rsv symptoms preemie

rsv

Avatar f tn I just had my son at 33 weeks 6 days. If anyone on here has had preemies before my question is how long after you brought baby home did you stay in the house? I didn't get a definite answer from my doctor or the hospital. He is now almost 3 weeks and doing well just above 6 pounds. I've heard other moms say right away is okay another said one year!!! I have errands and appointments plus my 5 year old has to be taken and picked up from school during the week.

Avatar n tn My daughter gets needles to prevent RSV because she was born preemie. RSV, doesnt harm adults or older children and most of the time people dont know they have it. It has alot of cold symptoms. Respiratory Synical Virus... (i think that is what it stands for.. ) IT is basically a bad cold. Though very contagious and harmful to pregnant people and little children and babies. (mainly under the age of 2) Most people can fight it off like a cold.
172411 tn?1287086265 i took my son back intoday because he was getting even more fussy i went in thinking that maybe his ear infection was getting worse come to find the doc was running test on RSV. sure enough with my luck he has it. he is suppose to be montiored well tonight and see what all goes on if anything changes with him or worsens to take him in right away... have anyone else gone through rsv. i no little of this could anyone telling about this..
Avatar n tn One should never mess with breathing issue risks, especially in a preemie. RSV can be fatal. Keep them safe. Get the shots.
Avatar n tn I am still breastfeeding, well, pumping, cause he was in NICU for 7 weeks and i had to pump, so i continue to do this. My question is, do any of you have preemie babies and how was their development? Were they behind or not? thanks so much and God Bless you all!
193609 tn?1292180293 Ashtyn got 4 immunizations on Thursday and his monthly RSV vaccine injectiojn on Friday. Today he hwas developed a pimply looking, dark red rash on his leg at the site of his RSV injection. The doctor is calling me any minute now to tell me whether I have to take him to the hospital because I called the nurse-on-call at his ped's office. Has anyone else's child had a reaction to an immunization like this????
Avatar f tn My little boy was born at 36 weeks and was in good health. His first year has been difficult. RSV. Milk protein allergies and eczema. Which pediatrician attributes to being early. He will be a year old on the 10th and he is off all medications and is slowly switching to plain old milk. Things will be fine. Being I. The hospital you will have the best care.
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.
Avatar n tn My baby is too a preemie born 9/22/05 at 8 weeks early. He is up to 7lb 9oz and he goes for his bottle like he hasn't ate in a week and I have been worrying that he must not be getting enough. He takes 3oz a feeding every 3 hrs. We add a calorie supplement and ground rice cereal to thicken which also add extra calories to my breast milk. It is good to hear from another preemie mom. Maybe they are just going through a phase but I think that we just worry so much more with a preemies.
Avatar n tn You know your body. Most likely you'll be told the same again. Take your own precautions, push healthcare staff to take you seriously. Just keep in mind that you are also traumatized by your preemie birth and it's causing you stress and worry. I have similar fears because mine were both preterm. There is a group on Facebook called Preemie awareness and support. It's all preemie parents and they're all sensitive and knowledgeable.
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 n tn He is doing great health wise. He does not have any known health problem. he gets the synergis shot for RSV... It must be working because he is practically the only kid in our town that is not sick. I know he'll catch up, it just helps to know other preemies out there are waiting to reach milestones.
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 Have they ruled out RSV or whatever it is????? That is something you could look into as well. That is suppose to be really serious I thought. I agree with Chloe if this has gone on for 2 weeks it NEEDS to be looked at. I do not think 13 lbs is good for a 6 month old unless your baby was a preemie. My niece is just 5 months old and weighs like 17 lbs or more. Please take your baby in ASAP. Let us know how it goes.

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 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 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 n tn Posted By Tiffini Suarez on April 17, 1999 at 17:29:18 Dear Dr. Thank you in advance for your time. Maybe you can help me shed some light as to what might be going on with my daughter. She is 18 months old and weighs 21 pounds. She was born at 26 weeks gestation with a birthweight of 745 grams. She was on the vent for 3 days and on oxygen for nearly 3 months. She had ROP and BPD as well as other discharge diagnoses.
Avatar f tn s office unless they are open where you are. Weezing in that little of a baby can lead to serious problems and could be RSV a severe resporitory illness that usually requiers hospitilization. Weezing is airway restriction and waiting can cause harmful things to the body, loss of oxygen which means less oxygen to the brain and body and lungs!!!!! Please go ASAP this is serious and needs medical attention NOW!
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.
