Lung Infection in child : these are the 5 Signs
The effects of infection and pollution also occur on the lungs. Many people around the world are suffering from different types of lung diseases. Asthma and CPPD are the major in these diseases.Having children suffer from this disease at a young age is a matter of concern. The incidence of chronic lung disease has increased rapidly in infants. In this article, we are telling you in detail about the chronic lung diseases in infants.
The World Health Organization is also very concerned about the disease. According to the WHO report, due to the polluted environment a large number of people are suffering from lung related and COPD (respiratory disease related disease).
There is a possibility of continuous increase in its patients in the future. Experts believe that if strict measures are not taken to prevent this disease then it will become a dangerous disease in the coming years. In India too, this problem is increasing rapidly. One out of every 20 children who are born every day is suffering from this disease.
Chronic lung disease in infants
Difficulty breathing due to damaged tissues in neonatal lungs and other related health problems are called chronic lung diseases. In such cases, the lungs stop the air and become damaged. In such cases, the fluid is filled in and a large amount of mucus begins to form.
In many children, lung problems start from the beginning. However, most children with chronic lung disease survive. But its symptoms can come back and children may need treatment. Chronic lung diseases are also known as bronchopulmonary dysplasia, or BPD.
Chronic lung disease is the cause of the problem in the baby’s lungs. This problem is common in children born prematurely. Children born in the 26th week of pregnancy and whose weight is less than 1 kg (2.2 pounds). Lungs of premature birth are not fully developed. Such children may have chronic lung problems as follows.
Lung injury using the ventilator
Many premature children (prematurely-born) need this treatment, especially when they have respiratory distress syndrome (respiratory distress syndrome). But the ventilator used to breathe and make high oxygen levels can harm the lungs of the child.
Fluid in the lung
Premature children may have this problem with birth or later. Occasionally the fluid is filled in the lungs of children born with the help of surgical operation throughout the period.
Children born prematurely increase the risk of infection in the lungs. Often this happens due to the respiratory syntyl virus (RSV).
Symptoms of chronic lung disease
Children with chronic lung disease can only see symptoms after three days of birth. Its first symptom is having trouble breathing. Apart from this, the symptoms of chronic lung disease in infants may also be of the following types.
Breathing or breathing rapidly.
Use neck, chest, and abdominal muscles to breathe. It seems as if the child is breathing in or between the ribs.
To breathe heavily, or to make a strangely sharp sound in breathing.
Tired of eating early during meal
Stains or acne skin, especially on lips, tongue and nails etc.
Children should not delay any symptoms of long-term lung disease and should meet the doctor immediately. Any kind of delay in this disease can be fatal for the child.
