  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus
    cough fever and a general feeling of being ill But in premature babies and kids with diseases that affect the lungs heart or immune system RSV infections can lead to other more serious illnesses RSV is highly contagious and can be spread through droplets containing the virus when someone coughs or sneezes It also can live on surfaces such as countertops or doorknobs and on hands and clothing so it can be easily spread when a person touches something contaminated RSV can spread rapidly through schools and childcare centers Babies often get it when older kids carry the virus home from school and pass it to them Almost all kids are infected with RSV at least once by the time they re 2 years old RSV infections often occur in epidemics that last from late fall through early spring Respiratory illness caused by RSV such as bronchiolitis or pneumonia usually lasts about a week but some cases may last several weeks Doctors typically diagnose RSV by taking a medical history and doing a physical exam Generally in healthy kids it s not necessary to distinguish RSV from a common cold But if a child has other health conditions a doctor might want to make a specific diagnosis in that case RSV is identified in nasal secretions collected either with a cotton swab or by suction through a bulb syringe Preventing RSV Because RSV can be easily spread by touching infected people or surfaces frequent hand washing is key in preventing its transmission Try to wash your hands after having any contact with someone who has cold symptoms And keep your school age child with a cold away from younger siblings particularly infants until the symptoms pass To prevent serious RSV related respiratory disease at risk infants can be given a monthly injection of a medication consisting of RSV antibodies during peak RSV season roughly November to April Because its protection is short lived it has to be given in subsequent years until the child is no longer at high risk for severe RSV infection Ask the doctor if your child is considered high risk Treating RSV Fortunately most cases of RSV are mild and require no specific treatment from doctors Antibiotics aren t used because RSV is a virus and antibiotics are only effective against bacteria Medication may sometimes be given to help open airways In an infant however an RSV infection can be more serious and may require hospitalization so that the baby can be watched closely He or she may require fluids and possibly treatment for breathing problems At home make a child with an RSV infection as comfortable as possible allow time for recovery and provide plenty of fluids The last part can be tricky however because babies may not feel like drinking In that case offer fluids in small amounts at more frequent intervals than usual To help your child breathe easier use a cool mist vaporizer during the winter months to keep the air moist
