Deep Concave Chest?
Tonight … I want to ask about the newborn’s chest sunken inside, especially when the baby cries, looks at the hollow of the chest … Is there a problem with the situation … Thank you
Thank you for the question.
When crying, the muscles of the baby's chest and abdomen will contract more strongly, thus making the chest seem to bend inward. In thin, recumbent infants, this hollow in the chest can be seen more clearly. This condition, as long as it does not make your baby look crowded, difficult to breathe, cough, sound wheezing, bluish, or appear other complaints, often not dangerous.
You should never worry too much. Just make sure your baby is getting enough milk so that the growth and development take place properly as it should. As you age and gain weight, this basin will normally become less vague and not cause significant complaints.
If you find that your baby appears to be experiencing other complaints as mentioned above, then you can check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician. Worried, the hollow in his chest was more apparent because of the retraction of the respiratory muscles. This condition can occur in people with allergies, pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma, and bronchhiolitis. Other factors, such as musculoskeletal abnormalities around the chest, heart problems, or some other disease can also trigger complaints like your baby has. Depending on the cause, later your baby's condition can be handled differently. To detect the cause of the complaint, your doctor may also recommend that your baby undergo an x-ray examination, or other supporting tests.
Hope this helps ...
