What is rsv disease in babies

Common Questions and Answers about What is rsv disease in babies


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 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 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 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.
Avatar f tn My 11 week has rsv .. He was full term .. Has any other mother had this in a infant ..
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 f tn What a coincidence!
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.
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 f tn Did they do a chest xray when you took him in? The reason I ask is because when I took Jadyn in they did a chest Xray and swabbed for RSV. The xray came back clear and his breathing "sounded fine" so they gave me the choice of taking him home and caring for him myself.
Avatar f tn I read the paper ad it told me that in mild disease that no specific treatment is necessary. So I guess he is only a mild case, but I don't know how to tell if he is getting worse. I read on another site that family history of asthma puts him at a higher risk for becoming a severe case. I am know wen he is getting worse?
220217 tn?1209679677 I know how hard RSV can be! I cant imagine having two babies with it!! Evan is sick again =( He just got over RSV(Bronchilitis) 4 weeks ago, and now he has his cough again. I hope it goes away soon!! Thats great about the shots!!! I wish we could have gotten them, but its definately good they give them to preemies!
Avatar n tn they did several echos on him for the first few months of his life, i was told this is to monitor him I do want to make a suggestion and you really need to talk to your daughters cardiologist about this, there is an illness and I am not trying to scare you, but there is an illness out there called RSV, it is a cold in you and I and healthy children.
Avatar f tn Is there any chance there is something in your home such as black mold or something. The asthma and skin problems and can weaken the immune system. Just something to think about. I hope you find out the problem!
Avatar f tn PS What is RSV you mentioned?
Avatar f tn I believe it is usually referred to as fifths disease in humans. Look it up because I'm not positive, but there is an outbreak of fifths going around elementary schools in my area.
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!!
229857 tn?1319029907 Oh he also has a little rash on his face which I know is common in babies that have a cold or other type of infection... the thing im worried about is RSV??? I think thats what its called. I read online it usually shows up between 4-6 week olds and he is 4 weeks... also im worried about the dark yellow mucus being an infection like pneunomia or something.. Gosh I hate the internet!!
2189208 tn?1339572701 Wen she was developing in my tummy two of her chromosomes got stuck together which caused her to have a copper deficiency n copper plays a good role in organs her organs weren't as strong as most babies so wen she got rsv she couldn't fight it her organs were too weak
593530 tn?1263847957 Hang in there it will pass, as you probly know just monitor his fluid intake closely, make sure he is still peeing alot! It is very easy for these little ones to become dehydrated. Also try to elevate his head when he sleeps if you havn't already that will help keep his nose clear.
148691 tn?1260194903 I'm so sorry RSV stinks. My little guy got RSV 2 winters ago and was in the hospital for over a week with it. Just keep a close eye on her and if you see things getting worse take her back in right away. It's common but can turn ugly quickly. Good luck.
363110 tn?1340920419 Understand that for 95% of all children born with heart disease (there are one in every hundred children born in this country every day, with heart disease) in this country have a treatment for their heart disease. Because of that fact most go on to live normal lives. There is hope for those children. For the unlucky 5% left, life doesn't work that way and for them, your post is something that doesn't set too well. I still think this post is an important one.
Avatar f tn I'm in the er with my husband & daughter. She's 6 months & has a fever of 104.2. I don't know what's wrong, but Def am scared!! Such a high fever for a little baby. I'm waiting for the Dr now.
1368291 tn?1299629804 The bad thing is on Friday I noticed Ryan getting a little stuffy. 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...
9536744 tn?1414122031 Since babies do not have sinuses like adults then can get rsv which when caught early is easy to handle. If caught later the baby can end up in the hospital. My daughter had it just after she turned 1and we just had to use a nebulizer, but it happened to a friend of mines newborn and he ended up in the hospital for a few days.
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 They said she had RSV, they could either suck some snot out and test it and tell me she has RSV, or just tell me she has it and the treatment will be the same - her cough was also barky (croup like) at night, so she told me to wrap her up and sit outside and let her breathe in the cold air. I hope its not RSV, but if it is a mild case and isnt in her lungs and she is eating and drinking ok, they probably wont do anything anyway.
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???
