During pregnancy can I hold my breath long enough to cause damage to my baby?

No: No; even if you could hold you breath long enough to pass out, you would start breathing again on your own. As for the baby, it has lots of ways to protect itself from running out of oxygen and it would be fine. Nonetheless, i don't recommend that you try! ...Read more

How fast should a newborn breath, my daughter seems to be breathing fast esp when sleeping and pulling to breath born w fluid in lungs (resolved) she's 1week?

Periodic breathing: Newborns breath fast...Around 40-50 x a minute. They also have a cycle of breathing called periodic breathing where they breathe very fast then slow it down and can have an interval of up to 10-15 seconds of "holding their breath" then it starts over. As long as she is pink and eating well and in no distress she is fine. If worried at all see your pediatrician..Reassurance is very helpful. ...Read more

Can crying trigger asthma attacks in asthmatic infants? My 7mo doesn't sleep on her own and I fear CIO methods due to vomiting and wheezing.

Controller med: Your baby does need to be seen by a specialist. Wheezing at this age may be due to a number of conditions. Crying and increased respiratory effort may be the result of the asthma. If the baby wheezes often, a controller medication such as pulmicort nebulized solution is used. This is an aerosol form of a steroid. Virtual consultation available via HealthTap. ...Read more

My mom is in induced coma with ARDS should she not make it could they pull her out of the coma to say good bye?

My mom is in induced coma with ARDS should she not make it could they pull her out of the coma to say good bye?

Speak with Doctor: Unfortunately giving an answer long-distance is rather difficult in such a case. The best (and in my opinion the only) person who can answer that question is her primary doctor or anesthesiologist. I think it really depends on the severity of her situation as to what the risk of complication might be in bringing her out and then trying to re-induce. All the best to you all in this difficult time. ...Read more

What can someone do to control his or her breathing when they have heart palpitations?

Relax. Seek help.: Although some palpitations can compromise cardiac function enough to cause shortness of breath, most breathing issues associated with palpitations are caused by the accompanied panic. Breathing control will not change the palpitations per se; getting to the cause of the palpitations and treating the cause to control or eliminate the reason for the palpitations is the goal. See your doctor! ...Read more
