Autumn baby cough improper care pneumonia
In autumn and winter, babies are prone to cold and cough, and mothers cannot abuse antitussives in order to quickly cough.
Improper cough can be counterproductive, causing further infections in the respiratory tract and even pneumonia!
Cough care and pneumonia pneumonia pneumonia occurs frequently in cold seasons and sudden climate changes. It is a common disease that threatens your baby’s health.
Because the lungs of this age group are rich in blood vessels, the bronchial lumen shrinks and divides easily due to congestion. Once the baby has pneumonia, the symptoms are more serious, and the mother must be vigilant.
To recognize pneumonia, mothers must understand that when the baby shows the following symptoms, the mother must suspect that the baby is not a simple cold, and must ask the doctor for help.
Time is not standard. Onset of pneumonia can be rapid or slow. Mothers should not think that it is impossible for a baby to catch pneumonia for a long time.
All manifestations of pneumonia babies often show fever, refusing food and vomiting, and the body temperature is mostly at 38?
39 ° C, which can reach 40 ° C. The pneumonia-specific respiratory system is coughing, phlegm sounds, and shortness of breath. Sometimes it is accompanied by diarrhea, rapid heartbeat, pale face, etc. In severe cases, seizures will occur.
Babies most likely to be corrected by mothers are susceptible to respiratory infections. These diseases have varying degrees of fever, antifeeding, rejection, vomiting, rapid breathing, and seizures when the body temperature is too high.
Specific to upper respiratory tract infections: 1.
Runny nose, stuffy nose, sneezing, throat congestion, tonsillitis, etc. are often present, but pneumonia does not have these manifestations.
Although upper respiratory tract infections can also cause fever and febrile convulsions, they are benign convulsions for a short period of time and no further seizures will occur after the temperature drops.
Specific to pneumonia: 1.
Convulsions in babies with pneumonia are not all caused by high fever. They are also related to calcium deficiency and hypoxia in the brain. The timing of convulsions can occur repeatedly, and they are accompanied by drowsiness and irritability.
Significantly faster breathing (shortness of breath) is the main manifestation of pneumonia.
Because of shortness of breath, the baby will groan when exhaling, his nose flaps, and his skin becomes blue.
According to the standards of the World Health Organization, shortness of breath means: 2 months of babies breathing ≥60 times / minute; 2?
12 months baby ≥50 times / minute; 1?
3-year-old baby ≥40 times / minute.
Pneumonia baby’s whole body atrophy symptoms are obvious, as long as the mother carefully observe it is not difficult to identify pneumonia.
Warm reminder: In the early stage of pneumonia, if the mother can’t make a judgment, the baby should be turned into a hospital in time, and the white blood cells, X-ray flash filming and other tests can be used to diagnose pneumonia as early as possible.
Home care for pneumonia is less critical for babies who do not need hospitalization, so progress in home care is critical.
The most important environment The environment of the living room should be quiet, clean and tidy. The room should be ventilated once an hour to ensure fresh air. The indoor temperature should be controlled at about 20 ° C and the relative humidity should be 60%.
If the room temperature is too high, it is difficult to ensure a moderate humidity.
Diet should pay attention to the baby’s poor appetite at the beginning of the illness, you can give a liquid diet, such as: human milk, milk, rice soup, vegetable water, fruit juice, etc .; When the baby’s condition improves, should be given porridge, noodles and other food.
In addition, pay attention to vitamin C, A, D, multi-vitamin B, etc., while adding calcium.
Babies with worse disease course should pay attention to strengthening nutrition to avoid malnutrition.
Give your baby more water to promote sputum drainage.
Slap and expel sputum When the baby cannot cough up sputum, the mother can pat the baby’s back. The method is as follows: the baby lies on the mother’s thigh, the mother holds the hands in a hollow shape, and once, beat the baby’s hips rhythmically.Should not be too heavy.
With the highest shot, place your baby on the right side.
Coughing with antitussive pneumonia is also unavoidable. Cough can transfer secretions and germs from the body, and protect the respiratory system.
If the antitussive is used blindly, the sputum cannot be expelled and pneumonia can be aggravated.
Can only be used for dry plasma cough.
Moms can use expectorants to thin the sputum and reduce the viscosity, and it is easy to cough to reduce cough symptoms.
Breastfeeding is good for pneumonia prevention1.
Breastfeeding According to a study by the University of California, Davis Children’s Hospital, accepting full breast milk replacement for 6 months can help protect your baby from respiratory diseases.
This is compared with the proportion of babies who have been replaced with whole breast milk for 6 months. Babies who have received only 4 months of whole milk replacement have a higher risk of developing pneumonia.
Strengthening the care of mothers should strengthen the common sense of nursing, understand the nutritional needs of the baby at all stages, add supplementary food in a timely manner, cultivate good eating habits, and get more sun.
Preventing rickets and malnutrition is the key to preventing severe pneumonia.
Keep away from high-risk groups. Do not take your baby to public places during the prevalence of pneumonia, and avoid babies from contacting people with respiratory infections, especially those with poor constitution.
