Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Coughs and colds in infants can occur due to many factors, for example allergies, irritations, to infections of the respiratory tract. Coughs and colds are often also a sign of prodromal infection of other organ systems. When experiencing coughs and colds, the immune system will be stimulated to work more actively. As a result, metabolism will also increase. This increase in metabolism will naturally cause the frequency of breathing and heart rate to increase. Therefore, this does not always indicate a dangerous condition.
Objective checks need to be done to find out whether your baby's breathing and heart rate is faster than normal. Because, not infrequently, this complaint can be very subjective, especially if it is examined only by ordinary people. The doctor who examines your baby directly, with his competence and experience, is certainly able to distinguish which babies are breathing and their heart rate is too fast, and which are not. In the medical realm itself, babies aged 16 months normally have a respiratory frequency ranging from 24-34 times per minute, while the heart rate ranges from 80-130 times per minute. Is it true that your baby's breathing and heart rate exceeds the normal range above?
If true, and you feel your baby's condition has not improved after undergoing medical treatment, we recommend that you check it back to the doctor or pediatrician. Some dangerous conditions that can cause coughing, colds, as well as an increase in the frequency of breathing and baby's heart rate include pneumonia, bronchitis, bronchhiolitis, asthma, and so on. These conditions can be diagnosed enough doctor with a direct physical examination, or it may also involve blood tests, x-rays, pulse oximetry, and so on.
At this time, what you need to do:
Pay attention to anything that triggers or worsens your baby's complaints (often smoke, dust, cold, pollution, pollen, animal dander) As much as possible, keep your baby from contact with the originator of the complaint. Keep the environment around the baby so that it is always clean, moisture maintained (humidity use a humidifier water if necessary), and not too cold or dry (avoid using air conditioning or excessive fan) Increase direct physical contact (skin to skin) with the baby Do not carelessly give the baby other drugs without doctor's advice Always keep your baby's milk and give too he is MPASI that is healthy and nutritious so that his endurance is well maintained Stay calm, don't panic Hopefully it helps huh ..
