In brief: Mgt

I would advise seeing the ED, from your description the baby is breathing fast and using muscles not usually used in normal breathing patterns.
The baby may need to have antibiotics, lab testing and another oxygen saturation test. Assessment will be made at that time for bronchiolitis, pneumonia and sepsis. We can follow up once you have been in the ED.
