Stress test for infants

Common Questions and Answers about Stress test for infants


Avatar m tn Hi! My baby(female) is 6 days old and diagnosed with low TSH. The lab test results indicates that she only has 2.03 uIU/ml. The reference the hospital gave us is 2.4 - 40 uIU/ml. My question is, what is the actual/normal level of TSH for infants? What are the necessary steps to take? Thank you and best regards...
Avatar f tn Does anyone know any information about the infant blood test they do for thyroid? I have a friend that lost a baby at 6 weeks last year. During her pregnancy she took a turn for the worse and had many hypo symptoms but blamed it on pregnancy and did not get tested. She delivered with a midwife at home and I guess the heel ***** was not succesful so in this case it is not really realevent. But I am getting to something else with this.
Avatar f tn Good for you for stopping mama. I don't know the exact timeline- I think the test goes back to about 20 weeks of pregnancy. My best advice is to let your provider know so they are aware of it and they can be on the look out for any complications with the baby. Good luck!

Avatar m tn Can you please post the reference ranges that go with those thyroid test results. Ranges vary from lab to lab, plus different measurement units are also used, making it difficult for our Forum members to evaluate without your specific reference ranges.
Avatar n tn For many years, GER [Gastroesophageal reflux] during infancy and childhood was thought to be a consequence of absent or diminished LES tone [lower esophageal sphincter, which is sometimes also referred to as the Cardiac Sphincter due to its proximity to the heart]. However, studies have shown that baseline LES pressures are normal in pediatric patients, even in preterm infants.

Avatar f tn My arm starts to feel heavy too and I have to slow down and stop to get my breath and the pain / tightness slowly eases. Because of this I was sent for a stress test while hooked up to an ecg. This was in a warm room and I managed to complete it without any pains. Im confused now as it doesnt happen all the time but it is worse in cold weather. Could this be angina even though my ecg didnt show any problems with my heart? They said there was slight changes but nothing to be concerned about.
Avatar f tn He was born at 34 weeks, 5lbs 1oz, stayed in hospital 11 days and did well, no feeding tubes, eats well, breathing problems resolved 2 hours after birth. Could this be stress from early birth, why would this develop weeks after leaving hospital?
Avatar f tn I doubt it, but why are you using coke while pregnant, it can harm the baby? How long were you using before?

Avatar n tn we don't blood test children for herpes . we don't have fda approved tests that are accurate in them until they are at least 14 years of age ( exception being we still do use herpes igm testing in infants under 1 year ). once your children are old enough to have "the talk" with them, let them know that hsv1 is the cause of cold sores, 1 out of every 3 people they know has it by their teenage years and to be aware of it.
Avatar f tn Furthermore, if health care providers tell you to start B12 therapy, always insist on testing first. Infants and children need a serum B12 and a urinary methylmalonic acid test. Documentation of a B12 deficiency is critical and test results along with clinical exam will dictate B12 therapy. In addition, the child’s physician should investigate the underlying cause if B12 deficiency is found.
Avatar f tn As I have stated before, I am not immunocompromised to my knowledge, and had one HIV test not long ago which was negative. This all has led me to doubt the validity of my test, and YES, I will have it repeated this week. However, in the meantime, I would just like your opnion, - Do you, infact think that it is absolutely obsurd that I would have seb derm as a 22 year old white female?

212161 tn?1599427282 I didn't have the stress test because of a back problem. Instead they were looking mostly for structural problems. They just did a regular non stress echocardiogram and that was good enough. The doctor wrote on the prescript for that type of test. If they have to have the stress test then I don't know.
Avatar n tn I can produce a numbert of different opinions what is the appropriate heart rate and so on with exercising. The best method for someone with a heart issue is to have a stress test. A stress test is oftened done for the purpose of learning the degree of tolerance/risk one can safely do. The rule of thumb stated is not recommended for someone who has heart issues. You will be safe to engage in exercising according to METs.
Avatar m tn and one other thing if there was something wrong with my heart would it have shown during the stress test?
