stridor newborn ( stridor )
stridor is a noisy breath arising from the baby in the first days of life.Timbre, volume and pitch of this sound at all different children. stridor may resemble the whistle, hiccup, crowing ...
In some newborns is stored permanently, amplifying in a dream.Others appear when excited or crying.The reason - in difficulties during the passage of air through the upper airway.Fortunately, these obstacles are not so serious that the baby felt lack of oxygen!
not affect stridor and voice crumb because it is not hoarse.But why is he breathing?There are several reasons.
Firstly, laryngeal cartilages in newborns is still very soft, and the crumbs with stridor - even as the clay.They seem to cling to each other at the beginning of inspiration under the influence of negative pressure arising in the bronchi, and start to vibrate ... then all hope for the time larynx grows and expands, cartilage will be strong, and breathing - silent.
Secondly, toddler just learning to breathe.The nerve centers responsible for this important cause, rather than to relax the muscles of the larynx, at the moment of inspiration led them to stress, the glottis closes and the air breaks through it with a whistle.It happens in children with signs of increased neuro-reflex excitability.These kids breathing becomes noisy (for anxiety), and at the same time shaking the handle and jaw.They need supervision neurologist.
Thirdly, some crumbs is an inborn weakness of the muscles of the glottis, and if more and larynx narrowish, how can we not whistle during inspiration!Help crumbs while there is nothing - you need to wait for him to outgrow these problems.
Stridor fades to 1-1.5 years.The main thing - to protect baby from the cold.If the crumbs of a sore neck, stridor increase.Inflammatory phenomena are accompanied by swelling of the mucous membrane.This swelling occurs at the narrowest point - under the vocal cords - and makes breathing more difficult, leading to a false croup.He will bypass the child's side when his temper and protect from contact with outsiders.
Fourth, stridor arises from the increase in thyroid or thymus, compressive supple larynx.To make such a diagnosis, the pediatrician to examine the baby enough.If the thyroid gland to blame, most likely, the child in utero did not have enough iodine, which is very alarming!Such
need iodine subsidy plus the observation of the endocrinologist and a neurologist.A child with a large thymus also requires increased attention!He is prone to prolonged colds, false croup, diathesis, excess weight.All will be well if Mom would see to the baby nutrition, will teach him to swim, massage and generally strengthen the body of a child.
