When my newborn wheezing what should I do\?

When my newborn wheezing what should I do\?

See the doctor: The wheezing noise babies make can come from the upper airway tract (nose, back of throat) or from the lower airway tract (lungs). In a small child, it is important for a physician to determine where the noise is coming from, as that determines how serious it may be and what may be a possible treatment. In a newborn, I would suggest having them seen soon. ...Read more

Is wheezing after giving formula normal I give her formula everyday and after I am done feeding her she has this wheezing sound

Wheezing: Wheezing after feeding is not necessarily normal. You should call your child's doctor to discuss. They may want you to bring her in and feed her in the office so that they can examine her while she is making the noise. If you think that she is having difficulty breathing, turning blue, or going limp, you need to call your doctor immediately or take her to the emergency room. ...Read more

See your doctor: Sounds of wheezing during feeding are very concerning for something called aspiration- where the formula is going to his lungs instead of his stomach. Please see your doctor as soon as possible and they may do something called a swallow study to see if there is aspiration or not. ...Read more

Almost 3 years old. Slight cough, fever. No wheezing, small mucus, fast breathing, Active. Not feeding well but drinking water and peeing. Worried?

Worried, but ok: It sounds most likely to be a respiratory virus. This should hit it's peak around 3-5 days, with cough and congestion going away after 10-14 days. Watch for fever over 102.5, poor urine output, lethargy, irritability, breathing over 40/min, difficulty breathing with stomach and neck muscle use, or wheezing. If those develop, bring him in. ...Read more

I started coughing non stop when im trying to sleep last night and wheezing. But im not coughing during the day. Wht could be the cause?

GERD: Coughing with wheezing at night can sometimes be caused by silent reflux. You need not have heartburn symptoms to have this be the case. Allergies can also cause this sometimes; perhaps something in your room (pillows, blankets, etc). See your doctor to be examined and make sure nothing else is going on and then to treat this properly. ...Read more

Bronchoconstriction: Your symptoms are consistent exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (aka exercise-induced asthma). This does not mean you necessarily have asthma. A major goal is to ensure that exercise is not avoided. As your cardiovascular condition improves this may resolve. It it persists or worsens you should see physician for possible medications/inhalers to use and determine need for further testing. ...Read more

What would experts say about anatomical basis for the wheezing heard during an asthma attack?

Narrowing of airways: Asthma is caused by spasm in the small airways in the lungs the wheezing is like a whistling sound that occurs when you try to push air through an area of spasm that is too tight to allow normal flow. Think of it like when you whistle, you force air past an obstructed opening and creat turbulance that maks the sound. Whistles are not a vocal cord sound. ...Read more

Kids: Kids do not have to wheeze to have asthma, as you have indicated that your son has cough variant asthma. The Flovent and ventolin are appropriate management from your physician. I am not sure what the urgent care physician was treating with the amoxicillin. Antibiotics are not used to treat wheezing or cough variant asthma or rad (simply meaning the airways react/narrow to stimulus such as infections, exercise, or allergies). Was the physician concerned about a bacterial infection? In that case the antibiotic would be appropriate. ...Read more
