Toddler Breathing Problems: Retractions & Signs To Look For!
Here's a short video showing you a toddler (aka, my sweet Wilson) who's having difficulty breathing. As you'll see, his abdomen is sucking in and out, which is called retracted breathing...meaning he needs help STAT! If your kid is breathing like this, run don't walk to the hospital or doctor for a breathing treatment. I wanted to show this because the doctor always asked me if my kids were having retractions, and I never knew what she meant. It's obvious when it happens. So this helps some parents out there! Btw, Wilson is all better now! :) Thanks for watching! xo, Janz

Is noisy breathing in babies normal? - Dr. Prathap Chandra
Its normal that babies have noisy breathing till six months of age. This is commonly due to the blockage of the nose due to secretions as well as mucus from your babies nose.. nnThe noise is more obvious when the baby is feeding and also when they are sleeping. Majority of the times, this is not due to an infection, it is due to common secretions..

Fast Breathing as the Single Sign of Illness - Newborn Care Series
By Global Health Media Project. Download link: http://globalhealthmedia.org/videos/ Most babies with fast breathing alone can be effectively treated with oral amoxicillin at home under the care of a health worker. Babies less than one week old with fast breathing, though, should be referred urgently to a hospital. This video shows how to evaluate and treat the baby with fast breathing as the only sign of illness. The intended audience is frontline health workers in the developing world. Copyright © 2016, Global Health Media Project Script follows: Fast Breathing as the Single Sign of Illness Most babies with fast breathing alone can be effectively treated with oral amoxicillin at home under the care of a health worker. Babies less than one week old with fast breathing, though, should be referred urgently to a hospital. This video will show how to evaluate and treat the baby with fast breathing as the only sign of illness. Before checking the baby, wash your hands. Then clean the thermometer. As you take the baby’s temperature, gather important background information: Ask about key danger signs such as poor feeding, lethargy, and convulsions. The mother explains that her 2 week old baby has been breathing fast since yesterday but otherwise the baby is feeding well and behaving normally. The temperature is normal. Check the baby from head to toe for signs of illness. Now check his chest. Make sure the baby is calm and undressed from the waist up. When a baby is crying or restless, it’s difficult to count his breaths accurately. The baby’s breathing appears fast. Also notice the mild chest indrawing. This commonly occurs in a baby with fast breathing. Distinguish the mild chest indrawing that is normal with fast breathing from severe chest indrawing; a sign of serious illness. Notice as this baby draws a breath her lower chest sucks in deeply and her belly appears to move out. Our baby does not have severe chest indrawing. Next count the baby’s breaths. As easy way to count breathes is to lay your hand on the baby’s belly, and count the rises of the belly as you keep your eye on the second hand of a watch for 60 seconds. Breathing in and out counts for one breath: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Now for 60 seconds count the baby’s breaths yourself. Ready. Start now. He is taking 78 breathes in a minute. In a baby less than 2 months old, more than 60 is too fast. Count again if you’re not sure. The health worker has determined that the only problem with the baby is that he is breathing too fast. There are no other signs of serious illness. Let the mother know that her baby can be treated at home with amoxicillin by mouth. The baby weighs 3 kilos: he needs a half tablet twice a day for 7 days. Show the mother how to prepare and give the medicine. Advise her to return if her baby shows any sign of worsening – especially if he’s not feeding well, is listless, is too hot or too cold, or if he develops severe chest indrawing. See the baby on Day 4 of treatment to check the baby’s progress. Some babies with fast breathing need hospital level care urgently such as very young babies, less than a week old, very small babies weighing less than 1500 grams, and babies hospitalized in the previous 2 weeks. These babies need their first doses of IM ampicillin and gentamicin before they leave for the hospital. Feed them breastmilk every 2-3 hours and keep them warm with skin-to-skin contact throughout the trip. If referral is not possible for the very young baby, less than a week old, treat him at home with oral amoxicillin. Be aware though, that this very young baby is especially vulnerable. See the baby every day if possible to be sure he’s improving and the family is giving the correct treatment. Remember: A baby less than 2 months old with fast breathing, breathes more than 60 breaths per minute. Treat the baby at home with amoxicillin by mouth if fast breathing is the only sign of illness. Refer babies with fast breathing to a hospital who are very young, very small, or recently hospitalized.

Charlie Showing Retractions & Tachypnea
I wish I had taken a video for the purpose of showing retractions, but all I have is a video of us playing where they happen to be visible. This video shows Charlie Pre-Repair he had a complex congenital heart defect called AV-Canal or AVSD. You can easily see his subcostal retractions. The subcostal retractions are the ones that outline the bottom of his ribcage. He also has suprasternal retractions which you can see occasionally when he tips his head up. Suprasternal retractions use the neck muscles and you can see the notch at the base of his throat suck in when he breathes. He also had intercostal retractions at times, but I didn't see any in this video. Intercostal retractions show the outline of the ribs. Pre-repair Charlie routinely had respirations of up to 80 per minute and in the evenings would go as high as 95. This was expected with his type of defect, so we just worked around it. If your child shows these types of symptoms and a medical doctor has not specifically said that your child was OK despite them, seek medical attention immediately. In Charlie's case these were a symptom of heart failure. They can also be a symptom of respiratory distress or other issues. His respirations were around 75/min in this video. The orange and white device attached to his diaper is the snuza go! It is a movement monitor designed to sound an alarm if the baby stops breathing for 20 seconds. It has been well worth having as it gives me peace if mind. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002WLGV08?ie=UTF8&tag=httpslowslide-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B002WLGV08 This other YouTube video also shows suprasternal retractions and nasal flaring due to RSV http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFwr_zbgJII&feature=related

Signs of Breathing Problems in Infant You Tube
This video was produced by Global Health Media Project, and is intended primarily for frontline health workers in the developing world. The video and script (shown below) may be downloaded from their website: http://globalhealthmedia.org/videos/ This video will show how to evaluate and treat the baby with a breathing problem. Before checking the baby, wash your hands and the thermometer. As you take the baby’s temperature, gather important background information; especially evidence of danger signs: When did the breathing problem start? Was the labor or birth long and difficult? Did the baby need any help to start breathing? Check for any other danger signs such as poor feeding and convulsions. The mother explains that the baby has been breathing fast since yesterday. He is also not feeding well. First observe: the baby looks listless. His chest shows indrawing: as he draws a breath his chest draws in, and the belly appears to move out. Check the lips and tongue for pinkness, look at the nose for nasal flaring, and listen for grunting. Count how many breaths the baby takes in one minute. More than 60 is too fast. Count again to be sure. This baby is taking 90 breaths in one minute. Now check the baby from head to toe for other signs of serious illness. Here are examples of babies with signs of breathing difficulty. All of them need urgent referral, especially for oxygen. This baby has chest indrawing, fast breathing, and grunting, a sound associated with breathing difficulty heard on the out breath. . This baby is breathing too fast at 70 breaths per minute. She has chest indrawing and nasal flaring. This baby is breathing at a normal rate of 50 breaths per minute but he has chest indrawing. Here is another example of nasal flaring. This baby has a very severe breathing problem. He’s taking 120 breaths per minute and has severe chest indrawing, He urgently needs oxygen and specialized care. The health worker has determined that the baby is breathing too fast, has chest indrawing, poor feeding and listlessness. He has a serious breathing problem and needs to be referred for oxygen and special care. Discuss the baby’s urgent condition with the mother and advise her to take the baby to a higher level facility. Provide oxygen if possible on the way. Also give the baby the first doses of intramuscular ampicillin and gentamicin. Notify the hospital, arrange transportation, and write a referral note. Make sure the baby has breast or cup fed and is warm with skin-to-skin contact throughout the trip. Breathing problems can be life-threatening. Every effort should be made to refer the baby. If referral is not possible, do your best to care for the baby in your clinic though realize that this care is not the same. • Provide oxygen if possible. Also give antibiotics. Effective treatment options are intramuscular gentamicin plus either ampicillin, or procaine penicillin. Procaine penicillin has the advantage of being given only once daily • A secondline treatment can be intramuscular gentamicin plus oral amoxicillin Treat for 7 days. Ensure that the baby is warm and fed every 2-3 hours. Discharge when she has no further signs of breathing difficulty and is feeding well. Be sure the baby completes the full 7 days of treatment. Remember: • Rapid breathing and chest in drawing are signs of breathing difficulty. • Count the number of breaths for one minute, if more than 60, count again. • Refer babies with breathing problems urgently for oxygen and special care

Noisy Breathing in  & Snoring in Children - Dr. Sheelu Srinivas
Snoring in children is not at all normal, in fact an infant in the first few months of their life can have some noisy breathing. However if your child has been taken care in a neonatal ICU, what we call as NICU after birth then any kind of noisy breathing would be assessed. Here at our hospital, we have all the expertise to assess the delicate ones on the out patients as well, so that tour child does not go through the general anaesthesia and interventions till the diagnosis is reached, we offer out patient based flexible nasolayngoscopy, which is very safe and it is done in a safe environment. We have the expertise of taking care of these children if they require any surgical intervention. Lets keep in mind when these little ones are in the ICU or ventilated or intubated, the rest of the breathing pipe and breathing structure may get some collateral damage. So you should make sure that if the children are having any kind of noisy breathing or difficulty in swallowing, it should be investigated by a paediatric ENT surgeon. Lets talk about snoring in children. The commonest cause for snoring in children in enlarged tonsils and adenoids. Usually it will be an ENT surgeon who will be taking care of this. Adenoids are sitting at the back of the nose we do an outpatient based endoscopy so that we can show you the size of the adenoids and how much it is blocking your child’ s breathing, we also offer all the techniques and the latest ways of operating these adenoids and tonsils, which is called as coblation. So once the patient is on our paediatric ENT’s hands, he will get the best of the world class treatment in our hospital.
irregular body temp, chest retractions, tachy, CP-Charlie
Charlie has been having difficulty maintaining her body temp. Sometimes she will hover at 95 and not want to come up. Other times she spikes a "fever" of 102. She is not sick. She's been doing this for 2 months now. This particular night, her pulse-ox beeped, not because over her sat level, but because of her pulse. She was well over 200. Her temp was about 102 and she was breathing hard and fast. Sats were high 90's. I stripped her down and put a cool washcloth on her head. I almost took her to the ER, but soon she fell asleep and then started breathing more normally. By morning she was fine and her temp was back to normal.

Bronchiolitis - Symptoms
Bronchiolitis - Symptoms Treatment Bronchiolitis typically lasts for two to three weeks. The majority of children with bronchiolitis can be cared for at home with supportive care. It's important to be alert for changes in breathing difficulty, such as struggling for each breath, being unable to speak or cry because of difficulty breathing, or making grunting noises with each breath. Because viruses cause bronchiolitis, antibiotics — which are used to treat infections caused by bacteria — aren't effective against it. If your child has an associated bacterial infection, such as pneumonia, your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic for that. Drugs that open the airways (bronchodilators) haven't been found to be routinely helpful. But your doctor may elect to try a nebulized albuterol treatment to see if it helps. Oral corticosteroid medications and pounding on the chest to loosen mucus (chest physiotherapy) have not been shown to be effective treatments for bronchiolitis and are not recommended. Overview Bronchioles and alveoli in the lungs Bronchioles and alveoli in the lungs Bronchiolitis is a common lung infection in young children and infants. It causes inflammation and congestion in the small airways (bronchioles) of the lung. Bronchiolitis is almost always caused by a virus. Typically, the peak time for bronchiolitis is during the winter months. Bronchiolitis starts out with symptoms similar to those of a common cold but then progresses to coughing, wheezing and sometimes difficulty breathing. Symptoms of bronchiolitis can last for several days to weeks, even a month. Most children get better with care at home. A very small percentage of children require hospitalization. Symptoms For the first few days, the signs and symptoms of bronchiolitis are similar to those of a cold: Runny nose Stuffy nose Cough Slight fever (not always present) After this, there may be a week or more of difficulty breathing or a whistling noise when the child breathes out (wheezing). Many infants will also have an ear infection (otitis media). When to see a doctor If it's difficult to get your child to eat or drink and his or her breathing becomes more rapid or labored, call your child's doctor. This is especially important if your child is younger than 12 weeks old or has other risk factors for bronchiolitis — including premature birth or a heart or lung condition. The following signs and symptoms are reasons to seek prompt medical attention: Vomiting Audible wheezing sounds Breathing very fast — more than 60 breaths a minute (tachypnea) — and shallowly Labored breathing — the ribs seem to suck inward when infant inhales Sluggish or lethargic appearance Refusal to drink enough, or breathing too fast to eat or drink Skin turning blue, especially the lips and fingernails (cyanosis) Hospital care A tiny percentage of children need hospital care to manage their condition. At the hospital, your child may receive humidified oxygen to maintain sufficient oxygen in the blood, and perhaps fluids through a vein (intravenously) to prevent dehydration. In severe cases, a tube may be inserted into the windpipe (trachea) to help the child's breathing. Lifestyle and home remedies Although it may not be possible to shorten the duration of your child's illness, you may be able to make your child more comfortable. Here are some tips to try: Humidify the air. If the air in your child's room is dry, a cool-mist humidifier or vaporizer can moisten the air and help ease congestion and coughing. Be sure to keep the humidifier clean to prevent the growth of bacteria and molds. Another way to humidify the air is to run a hot shower or bath in the bathroom and let it steam up the room. Sitting in the room holding your child for about 15 minutes may help ease a fit of coughing. Keep your child upright. Being in an upright position usually makes breathing easier. Have your child drink. To prevent dehydration, give your child plenty of clear fluids to drink, such as water or juice. Your child may drink more slowly than usual, because of the congestion. Try saline nose drops to ease congestion. You can purchase these drops over-the-counter (OTC). They're effective, safe and nonirritating, even for children. To use them, instill several drops into one nostril, then immediately bulb suction that nostril (but don't push the bulb too far in). Repeat the process in the other nostril. If your child is old enough, teach your child how to blow his or her nose. Use OTC pain relievers. OTC pain relievers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) may help relieve a sore throat and improve your child's ability to drink fluids. Never give your child aspirin.

What is Transient Tachypnea of the newborn? - Dr. V Prakash of Cloudnine Hospitals
Transient tachypnea of newborn, what do you mean by Transient tachypnea of newborn? Normal inside the womb, the baby’s lung is filled with fluids. That is because the baby secretes the walls or the side most areas of the lungs or the alveolus, the terminal portion of the lungs where it seems to happens. It is lined with certain cells and through which it secretes where, the secretory path. So inside the womb, the baby’s lung is fully filled with fluids. At the time of delivery due to various hormones which occur during the natural physiological process off delivery, the secretion of fluid changes into absorption of fluids, which happens during the normal process of labor. If a merger is taken for elective caesarean section, that means she is not in labor and she is taken in for a caesarean section. This transition from a secretory to an absorptive doesn’t happen. One, which has been secreting has to change to absorption. Since a normal physiological process doesn’t happen during an elective caesarean section, the fluid stays there in the lung. It doesn’t clear. It stays there for sometime and the baby has a respiratory distress, fast breathing at birth. It takes about 2 to 3 days to a maximum of 7 days for the fluid to get cleared and the baby requires some oxygen support for this respiratory distress to heal. This is called as Transient tachypnea of newborn. Besides this elective caesarean section, a male baby has a higher chances of getting this Transient tachypnea of new born, mother being an asthmatic mother. If the mother has asthma, then the baby has a higher chance of getting Transient tachypnea of newborn. If the mother has insulin dependant diabetes mellitus, if the mother is a diabetic mother on insulin, there is a higher chance of the mother to get a Transient tachypnea of newborn. These are various reason why a baby gets a Transient tachypnea of newborn, or a fluid inside the lungs.
Recognizing Bronchiolitis
It’s the most common reason children go to the hospital. Doctors say signs of bronchiolitis need to be recognized before it’s too late. Dr. Alex Daneshmand, a pediatric critical care physician with Golisano Children’s Hospital, says bronchiolitis is a serious disease that affects many children. “I think it’s really important that as parents we look out for our children less than two years of age, especially if we have any history of asthma.” Bronchiolitis is a lower respiratory disease that targets children under the age of two. It can start off as a cough, runny nose, and difficulty breathing. “Their body hasn’t developed yet. Their lungs have not developed yet to the point that they can deal with the virus. Their lungs are still growing. That virus likes to reside and cause quite a bit of inflammation in their lungs,” said Dr. Daneshmand. Bronchiolitis is contagious and is usually passed from child to child during winter months. In Florida, children commonly get the virus between August and April. “It’s a much longer season that we deal with. If it’s severe enough that they need to come to the hospital, then in the hospital they may need oxygen, they may need IV fluid, they may need assistance to breathe, they may need breathing treatment, all of this will help them get over this virus,” said Dr. Daneshmand. Children may wheeze and have trouble catching their breath. As the virus progresses, they may even lose interest in eating and drinking. “Seek that medical treatment sooner than later,” said Dr. Daneshmand. The sooner parents can recognize the symptoms and get treatment, the better outcome for the child.
