rsv

537497 tn?1292553056 One of my daughters was hospitalized. Both now have asthma, which is basically what reactive airway disease is. It is usually triggered by a virus, cold weather or exercise. To my knowledge it is not serious. I hope your little man gets better soon. Have you googled Reactive Airway Disease to get more info?
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 son is 4 months, and currently has RSV. Its horrible so I know how you feel. We only stayed a day in the hospital, and he has to have breathing treatments every 4 hours. I have read that asthma like you said is a long term effects. I have also read that they are more likely to get it again. Not sure if it is accurate or not. Good luck and if you need anything message me.

Avatar f tn My 11 week has rsv .. He was full term .. Has any other mother had this in a infant ..
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 f tn My sons dr thought I was crazy when I said my son was throwing up too much saying babies spit it thats what they do... till I fed him and he threw up. He had severe acid reflux. Us woman gotta be persistent when it comes 2 our kids.
Avatar n tn Reactive Airways Disease (RAD) is a state when a child has been wheezing and the cause is not necessarily defined. When this is short term associated with a particular virus, it is RSV. When this lasts for a longer period, it is often called asthma. The medications used most often for the treatment of this problem are bronchodilators (ventolin is one of these) and steroids. Using inhalers in 10-month-old children is very difficult.
1816154 tn?1463430018 Since this is my first time pregnant in the winter I don't know what to expect. Even though this is my 4th pregnancy but always been pregnant in the summer. So what type of clothes am I going to need for my baby when he or she is born in April.
Avatar f tn My 4 year old son coughs constantly at night. It's a dry, hacking cough which does not bring up any phlegm. It doesn't sound "sick" at all--it's the type of cough I wouldn't even notice except that he does it so frequently. During the day, often when he laughs or cries, it turns into the same dry, hacking cough. Otherwise, I haven't noticed that he does much coughing during the day. Does this sound like asthma? He has never wheezed or had difficulty breathing.
1416390 tn?1333901604 Well, according to what I have read- today is the day my embies should nestle in! I am full of hope and faith today. I keep waiting to feel something- but nothing. According to the embryologist- our embies are strong- she kept using the term 'text book!' So that helps me so much. I guess that is the blessing of having a young donor- my eggs were weak and hers are strong! My beta is next Friday- the 20th. Stick and grow babies! Momma loves you!
Avatar n tn HI MY CHILD WAS RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH AUTISTIC SPECTRUM DISORDER (ASD), BUT THE NEUROLOGIST ALSO TOLD ME THAT THE MRI SHOWED BRAIN SCARRING. I AM TERRIBLY CONCERNED FOR MY CHILD. I AM CURRENTLY AWAITING A SECOND OPINION. BUT WHAT KIND OF DISEASE COULD BRAIN SCARRING BE? HE HASN'T HAD A BRAIN INJURY HE ONLY HAD RSV WHEN HE WAS A NEWBORN OTHER THEN THAT HE IS RELATIVELY HEALTHY.
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.
1550149 tn?1340000730 What is celiac disease? Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten is found mainly in foods but may also be found in everyday products such as medicines, vitamins, and lip balms. The small intestine is shaded above.
Avatar n tn 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 My 10 month old DD has it as well. Hers is brought on by a virus....just a cold that ends up in her chest causing the RAD. Others can be brought on by allergies. Do you know what triggered it for him? How did they treat it? Is he on meds now? My dd has been hospitalized twice for it - just a day in the hospital one time and the other was just a trip to the ER. Since uses the nebulizer quite frequently - just about any time she gets a cold now.
765043 tn?1234583003 Im so scared. My son is on life support. 5 days now. He gets better and than all of a sudden he gets worse. Is there neone out there who can help. His lungs are all clouded. And his oxegyn went as low as 64. or 61. They had him on the bag until it stayed up on his own with the ventilater. Does anyone have any input. Please pray everyone!
192918 tn?1199451179 I have a 5 1/2 month old who is in the hospital right now secondary to what they are thinking is RAD. I had also never heard of it. He had RSV and pneumonia about six weeks ago for which he was hospitalized and came home on oxygen for ten days. He seemed to be doing better and then 4 days ago got sick again. He is inconsistent in his response to albuterol and oral steroid (prednisolone). It is so awful to see your child struggling to breathe.
Avatar n tn a cold will, and if you are implying your baby is premature then you need to call his or her pediatrician as premature babies are eprone to RSV which is a very dangerous respertory illness in children yet alone a premature infant.
377012 tn?1283965435 10-19-08-----took him back to docs for another review and x-ray shows patches on his lungs, so he does have RSV and Pneumonia...on top of that he is getting a viral infection!!!! this past week and a 1/2 has been the worst of all, i just wish he could hurry up and get rid of all of this, but i must be patient and continue getting him better!
