14 mo old boy: chest cough-6months. Noisy breathing since birth. Red, watery eyes-6months. Proj vomit 2 wks. 10 ear infctions. No allergies. Why sick?

ENT evaluation: A history of frequent ear infections and noisy breathing makes me concerned about large tonsils and adenoids. An evaluation by an ENT would be helpful. The cough and vomiting may be related to an ear infection, although it is difficult to know for sure without examining him. ...Read more

3 yr old with persistant cough, rsp rate 40, stridor, hard slightly painful distended belly, diarreah, but is behavior fine. ER or is DR next week ok?

ER: He/she is breathing too quickly and has stridor both which indicate respiratory distress. Take the 3 year old to the ER. You might want to consider calling 911.

8 month old with bronchiolitis day 4 albuterol men's q 3 hours and breathing is still 57bpm and wheezing worst?

Back to the doctor: A baby with bronchiolitis who is doing ok can be treated at home. One who is not doing so well may need hospitalization and oxygen therapy. If a baby seems not improving, or seems working harder to breathe, he needs to be seen by his pediatrician or the er again. Sometimes, babies need to be admitted to the hospital. ...Read more

No: Not sure what the underlying disease is (probably asthma). There are some normal variations when you do repeat pulmonary function testing. Drop from 88 to 83 is not concerning and could be just normal variation. Depending on the underlying disease process, ongoing monitoring will give better information about the trend. Trend is more important than one random reading. ...Read more

Are tracheal retractions ever normal? With noisy breathing, stomach breathing, and poor feeding(no thrive issues). Been happening for weeks.

Are tracheal retractions ever normal? With noisy breathing, stomach breathing, and poor feeding(no thrive issues). Been happening for weeks.

Tracheal Retractions: I am unsure of the age of this patient but there is a newborn diagnosis of tracheomalacia or weakness of the tracheal cartilage that causes these symptoms. This is generally resolved by the age of 1. It is important to ensure the baby is feeding well and thriving. It is often more prominent when the baby is on his/her back and when the baby is crying. Follow this along with your doctor. ...Read more

Daughter had airway cyst at 6mnths. had tracheostomy. now shez 1yr.she has noisy breathing since operation. reacts to asthma meds.Asthma or Operation?

Mgt: A virtual appointment would be helpful so that her medical records, surgical treatment may be further evaluated. Following trach placement, airway noise is common and often due to mucus, air leak and possibly tissue in the trach. What sort of reaction does she have ? Does she improve? Asthma medications help to open the airway below the trach and can help her bronchospasm. ...Read more

Wheezing?: Is he wheezing? Try xoponex mdi ( available by prescription only). May be you are dealing with scute bronchitis ( instead of infection)! sed rate just indicates 'inflammation' anywhere in body ( may be chest? ). And TLC not impressive. I think--- it's viral infection leading to acute bronchitis. See your pediatrician. ...Read more

Breathless. No cough/wheezing. Xray a month ago was normal,doctor suggested deep breathing.EKG/Echo10 months ago: normal. pulmonologist said allergies?

Asthma: Here are just 4 possibilities Many people feel short of breath if the nasal passages are obstructed. I assume the pulmonologist ruled out asthma and other lung conditions , a pulmonary function test can be helpful. If you are taking hormones and your heart rate is >100 then clots to the lungs are to be considered. Esophageal conditions can sometimes cause tightness that feels like breathlessness ...Read more

Airway anatomy: If your child is fine, sleeps well, no day fatigue, growing and developing fine, you need to back off. You've had checked all the major things. If he is symptomatic during day, then see a pediatric sleep specialist. If no daytime or long-term symptoms, then put a breath-right nasal strip on him at night and let him be loud. He will outgrow this in time. ...Read more
