RSV or Respiratory syncytial virus infects the lungs of new born children. In this virus, the lungs and respiratory tract are infected and usually those below 2 years of age have this issue. Common signs here include runny nose, dry cough that doesn't seem to go, fever, wheezing sound, trouble with breathing, lack of appetite and also drawing in their chest muscles into their ribs.
HOW IS RSV DIAGNOSED?
Examination of lungs with a stethoscope to check for wheezing or other abnormal sounds.Painless skin monitoring (pulse oximetry) to check whether the level of oxygen available in the bloodstream is lower than usual Blood tests to check white cell counts or to look for the presence of viruses, bacteria or other organisms. Chest X-rays to check for pneumonia. Lab tests of respiratory secretions from nose that check for the virus
HOW IS RSV TREATED?
Most otherwise healthy infants infected with RSV do not need to be hospitalized. In most cases, even among those who need to be hospitalized, hospitalization usually only lasts a few days, and full recovery from illness occurs in about 1 to 2 weeks.Visits to a healthcare provider for an RSV infection are very common. During such visits, the healthcare provider will assess the severity of disease to determine if the patient should be hospitalized. In the most severe cases of disease, infants may require supplemental oxygen, suctioning of mucus from the airways, or intubation (have breathing tubes inserted) with mechanical ventilation
