What Is The Best Treatment For Projectile Vomiting
Best thing I've come up with from projectile vomiting is pyloric stenosis. Is that the only cause?

Forceful vomiting: For example, a child sitting on your lap and projectile vomiting could completely clear your lap with the material vomited, forcefully projecting it away from himself. This often occurs when there is an obstruction to emptying the stomach at the pyloris, a muscle at the far end of the stomach where it meets the small intestine.
Esophagus: You could get some minor tears in blood vessels in the stomach or esophagus from projectile vomiting. the acid from the vomiting could do damage to the esophagus if it persists.
Not likely: Projectile vomiting in adults is generally associated with intra-cranial issues. If it has not resolved, please see you doctor at your earliest.
Vomitting: The reason we try to differentiate between both is projectile vomiting tends to be associated with more serious pathology. While vomiting could be something benign. Mist babies tend to spit up alot and we call it vomiting. I'd they have projectile vomiting, we might consider the possibility of pyloric stenosis.See 2 more doctor answers
Infection usually: Ah, what fun. A small child with vomiting all over the house... Most of the time it's infection, either influenza or a stomach virus of some kind (gastroenteritis). Hydrate and rest, and things will correct in a few days. If there is a lime-green color, excessive lethargy, blood in the stool, or excessive abdominal pain, get the child checked immediately.
My 7 month old son is projectile vomiting uncontrollaby and he has a slight temp. It's been going in most if the day. He if in good spirits but has?
Careful: Watch for dehydration--urine output? Moist mouth? Good eye contact? Skin color pink? Finger print goes away in less than 4 sec? If vomit is pine green or has blood he needs immediate medical attention. Otherwise you can do slow frequent fluids for him. Pedialyte or g2 gatorade would be best. Call your doctor if the vomiting persists.
My 6 month old had projectile vomiting today. I recently introduced baby yogurt - 2 days ago and again last night. Could this be a bug or intolerance?
Challenge test: More than likely a bug. But you can stop the yogurt for a week and then try feeding her the yogurt again. If she vomits again you can conclude that she has an intolerance.
Across the room: Basically, the vomit spews out the mouth and across the room, like a "projectile" And the projectile vomiting of blood is certainly a great concern!
I often get severe bilateral headache followed by projectile vomiting... I also feel spme fluid accumulated in my head. What should I do?
Glad you asked...: Got a call once: child is vomiting. "how far? " I asked. "out of this room and on the wall of the next one." that's projectile vomiting. We don't see it now as much as we used to because we usually diagnose pyloric stenosis (its most common cause in infants) before it gets that far.See 2 more doctor answers
Projectile vomiting: Projectile vomiting that has been present for seven months without progression is likely caused by severe gastroesophageal reflux, rather than the more concerning condition of pyloric stenosis. Regardless, projectile vomiting is generally not considered 'normal'. The next question is if it is being caused by a significant anatomical problem, or interfering with adequate growth.
Investigate: Its time to do some investigations into the possible causes
Unclear query: Unclear is you're a person or an animal. If you're a person, why are you thinking of "going hunting? ". Fresh blood, perhaps.
