The Cause Of A Child’s 14-month Heart Beat Quickly Accompanied By Flu And Cough?
Good morning, I want to ask My 14-month-old child is currently having a fever, flu and cough and yesterday was examined by a pediatrician, it’s just that now the child’s heartbeat is beating faster than usual and when coughing in the chest and stomach like being pulled up sometimes makes a child cry because the cough doesn’t stop . Is such a thing natural and not an indication of a serious illness? Thank you..
Thank you for the question.
Fever, colds, coughs, chest and stomach are like being attracted to, and often crying in infants most often indicates an infection in the respiratory tract, for example due to viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms. Other factors, such as asthma, pneumonia, bronchhiolitis, bronchitis, acid reflux, immune disorders, even infections of other organ systems can also trigger complaints like what your baby is experiencing right now.
When experiencing a cold, cough, and difficulty breathing, it is natural that a baby's heart rate will become faster. However, as long as your baby's heart rate is still in the normal range, which is between 80 to 130 times per minute, then this condition is not always dangerous. Increased baby's heart rate is also not always specific to a particular disease.
Our advice, if indeed your child has ever been seen by a doctor, you first try to give your child treatment according to the doctor's advice. Not only that, also do the following steps to improve his condition:
Give him breastmilk and warm water more often. Never give him drinks and food that is cold and excessively greasy Keep the baby from dust, cold, pollution, wind, pollen, animal hair, smoke, and other substances that can trigger allergies Wash your baby with water warm, then wear it to clean clothes and warm it diligently also wash your baby's hands Don't let other people carelessly come into contact with the baby, especially if there is any doubt about its cleanliness Don't use excessive air conditioning and fans around the baby from other people who experience coughs, colds, sneezing, and fever. Don't always bring a baby out of the house, especially in a crowd, unless you are urging the baby to dry in the morning sun so that the mucus that causes coughs and colds melts. You need to be vigilant if your baby's complaints are not improved with doctor handling and natural treatment as mentioned above , if your baby appears overcrowded or very weak, and if you or your baby are at risk of contracting Corona disease (such as having been in contact with a person with Corona, have traveled or been in contact with someone traveling to an area with a Corona outbreak), then don't delay again. Immediately check it back to the doctor or pediatrician so that further treatment is given yes .. Blood tests, x-rays, throat swabs, or other supporting tests may be a doctor's recommendation so that it is clear as to what further treatment needs to be given so that his condition improves.
Hope this helps ...
