The effectiveness of glucocorticoids in treating croup: meta-analysis. (1/52)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effectiveness of glucocorticoid treatment in children with croup. DESIGN: Meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials that examine the effectiveness of glucocorticoid treatment in children with croup. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Score on scale measuring severity of croup, use of cointerventions (adrenaline (epinephrine), antibiotics, or supplemental glucocorticoids), length of stay in accident and emergency or in hospital, and rate of hospitalisation. RESULTS: Twenty four studies met the inclusion criteria. Glucocorticoid treatment was associated with an improvement in the croup severity score at 6 hours with an effect size of -1.0 (95% confidence interval -1.5 to -0.6) and at 12 hours -1.0 (-1.6 to -0.4); at 24 hours this improvement was no longer significant (-1.0, -2.0 to 0.1). There was a decrease in the number of adrenaline treatments needed in children treated with glucocorticoids: a decrease of 9% (95% confidence interval 2% to 16%) among those treated with budesonide and of 12% (4% to 20%) among those treated with dexamethasone. There was also a decrease in the length of time spent in accident and emergency (-11 hours, 95% confidence interval -18 to 4 hours), and for inpatients hospital stay was reduced by 16 hours (-31 to 1 hour). Publication bias seems to play a part in these results. CONCLUSIONS: Dexamethasone and budesonide are effective in relieving the symptoms of croup as early as 6 hours after treatment. Fewer cointerventions are used and the length of time spent in hospital is decreased in patients treated with glucocorticoids.  (+info)

Clinical characteristics of acute viral lower respiratory tract infections in hospitalized children in Seoul, 1996-1998. (2/52)

This study was performed to investigate the etiologic agents, age distribution, clinical manifestations and seasonal occurrence of acute viral lower respiratory tract infections in children. We confirmed viral etiologies using nasopharyngeal aspirates in 237 patients of the ages of 15 years or younger who were hospitalized for acute lower respiratory tract infection (ALRI) from March 1996 to February 1998 at Samsung Seoul Hospital, Seoul, Korea. The overall isolation rate was 22.1%. The viral pathogens identified were adenovirus (12.7%), influenza virus type A (21.1%), -type B (13.9%), parainfluenza virus type 1 (13.5%), -type 2 (1.3%), -type 3 (16.0%) and respiratory syncytial virus (21.5%). The occurrence of ALRIs was highest in the first year of life, although parainfluenza virus type 1 infection occurred predominantly in the second year of life and influenza virus caused illnesses in all age groups. The specific viruses are frequently associated with specific clinical syndromes of ALRI. The respiratory agents and associated syndromes frequently have characteristic seasonal patterns. This study will help us to estimate the etiologic agents of ALRI, and establish a program for the prevention and treatment. An annual nationwide survey is necessary to understand the viral epidemiology associated with respiratory illnesses in Korea.  (+info)

Nebulised steroid in the treatment of croup: a systematic review of randomised controlled trials. (3/52)

BACKGROUND: Croup is one of the commonest respiratory complaints among children. There is growing evidence that steroids may be an effective treatment. AIM: To assess the effectiveness of treatment with nebulised steroid for children with croup. METHOD: Systematic review of randomised controlled trials comparing administration of nebulised steroid with placebo. Trials were identified from searches of three bibliographic databases, the Cochrane Controlled Trials Register, correspondence with the manufacturers of nebulised steroid, and one round of manual citation searching. RESULTS: Eight randomised controlled trials were identified including 574 children with mild to severe croup. Overall, the mean age was 25.2 months and 72% of children were male. All trials were hospital-based and of good methodological quality, with adequate concealment of treatment allocation and blind outcome assessment. Children treated with nebulised steroid were significantly more likely to show an improvement in croup score by five hours (combined relative risk = 1.48, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.27 to 1.74) and significantly less likely to need hospital admission after attending the emergency department (combined relative risk = 0.56, 95% CI = 0.42 to 0.75) than the placebo group. The funnel plot indicated the presence of publication bias, with smaller studies showing the larger effects, but this could also be owing to less pronounced effects in studies of older children with milder croup. CONCLUSIONS: Nebulised steroids are effective in the treatment of children attending hospital departments with croup. A meta-analysis based on individual patient data could clarify to what extent the effect depends on age and severity of disease. New trials are needed to define the indications for, and effectiveness of, steroid treatment of croup in the community.  (+info)

Do steroids prevent reintubation in children with laryngotracheobronchitis? (4/52)

BACKGROUND: Classic laryngotrachoebronchitis (LTB) is an inflammatory process, with oedema and secretions that involve the entire laryngotracheobronchial tree. The severity of lower airway disease in African children with LTB has previously been documented. The aim of the present study was to determine whether steroids prevent reintubation in African children with classic LTB. METHOD AND RESULTS: The study was a retrospective analysis from January 1993 to December 1996. Eighty-two black children with LTB were mechanically ventilated in the intensive care unit (ICU). By univariate regression, the estimated B coefficients for variables such as age, pneumonia, days of intubation, arterial partial oxygen tension (PaO2) : fractional inspired oxygen (FIO2) ratio, atelectasis and antibiotic use were not statistically significant (P > 0.05) as predictors for reintubation. Using multiple regression (all independent variables in combination), none of the variables acted as predictors of reintubation (P = 0.25). Steroids were shown to have no effect alone or in association with other variables in altering reintubation rates. An increase in the days of intubation showed a tendency towards reintubation (P = 0.06) in the univariate analysis (odds ratio 1.00-1.14), but showed no statistically significant difference in multivariate analysis. Of the variables used as predictors of reintubation, none acted either as a preventive factor or as a risk factor. CONCLUSION: The present results suggest that steroids should not be recommended at any stage in treatment of intubated patients with classic LTB. Prospective studies should evaluate the major risk factors for reintubation: duration of intubation, trauma to the airway at intubation and during ICU stay, and dose and timing of steroids. They should also evaluate whether upper airway disease is present alone or in association with lower airway disease.  (+info)

Adult croup: a rare but more severe condition. (5/52)

We report the first adult patient with virologically confirmed croup caused by parainfluenza virus type 3 and review 10 cases of adult croup described in the English-language literature. Circumstantial evidence of viral infection was present in only 1 other case, in which there was a rise in antibody titer against influenza B virus. Ten patients (91%) required intensive care support. None of the 11 patients died. A comparison was also made between the 11 adults with croup and 43 children hospitalized with severe croup described in a representative paper published in 1984. Adult croup represents an apparently more severe disease entity than pediatric croup.  (+info)

Severe upper airway obstruction caused by ulcerative laryngitis. (6/52)

AIMS: To present our experience of severe upper airway obstruction caused by ulcerative laryngitis in children. METHODS: Retrospective case note review of 263 children with severe upper airway obstruction and a clinical diagnosis of croup admitted to a paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) over a five year period. RESULTS: A total of 148 children (56%) underwent microlaryngoscopy (Storz 3.0 rigid telescope). Laryngeal ulceration with oedema was documented in 15 of these children (10%), median age 14 months (range 10-36) and median weight 10 kg (range 6-12). Twenty seven of the children who underwent microlaryngoscopy (18%) also had ulcerative gingivostomatitis consistent with herpes simplex virus infection. Ulcerative laryngitis was documented in nine of 27 (33%) children with, and in six of 121 (5%) children without, coexistent ulcerative gingivostomatitis. One of the 15 children did not require airway intervention. Nine children required nasotracheal intubation for a median of 4 days (range 3-11) and median PICU stay of 6 days (range 4-14). Five children required tracheostomy ab initio, with a median PICU stay of 30 days (range 20-36), and duration of tracheostomy in situ for a median of 19 days (range 15-253). All 15 children survived. CONCLUSION: Ulcerative laryngitis is more common in our patient population than the few reports suggest. Early diagnostic microlaryngoscopy is recommended in children with severe croup who follow an atypical course.  (+info)

Towards evidence based emergency medicine: best BETs from the Manchester Royal Infirmary. Type of oral cortiosteroid in mild to moderate croup. (7/52)

A short cut review was carried out to establish whether oral dexamethasone is better than oral prednisolone at improving outcome in children with mild to moderate croup. Altogether 139 papers were found using the reported search, of which none presented any evidence to answer the clinical question. It is concluded that there is no evidence available to answer this question. Further research is needed.  (+info)

Viral croup. (8/52)

Viral croup is the most common form of airway obstruction in children six months to six years of age. The frightening nature of croup often prompts parents and caregivers to seek physician consultation. For children with mild croup, symptomatic care and mist therapy may be all that is necessary. Epinephrine has been used for decades to treat more severe cases of croup, but recent meta-analyses have found that glucocorticoid use is associated with shorter hospital stays, improvement in croup scores, and less use of epinephrine. Studies have shown that treatment with 0.6 mg per kg of oral dexamethasone is as effective as intramuscular dexamethasone or 2 mg of nebulized budesonide. Oral dexamethasone in dosages as low as 0.15 mg per kg also may be effective. While more studies are needed to establish guidelines, oral dexamethasone can be used to treat mild to moderate croup with close follow-up and instructions for further care, if needed.  (+info)

Croup, also known as laryngotracheobronchitis, is a type of respiratory infection that is usually caused by a virus. The infection leads to swelling inside the trachea, which interferes with normal breathing and produces the classic symptoms of "barking" cough, stridor, and a hoarse voice. Fever and runny nose may also be present. These symptoms may be mild, moderate, or severe. Often it starts or is worse at night. It normally lasts one to two days. Croup can be caused by a number of viruses including parainfluenza and influenza virus. Rarely is it due to a bacterial infection. Croup is typically diagnosed based on signs and symptoms after potentially more severe causes, such as epiglottitis or an airway foreign body, have been ruled out. Further investigations-such as blood tests, X-rays, and cultures-are usually not needed. Many cases of croup are preventable by immunization for influenza and diphtheria. Croup is usually treated with a single dose of steroids by mouth. In more severe cases ...

If you had that strain as a kid you are immune ...Read more ...
Croup: Croup, acute respiratory illness of young children characterized by a harsh cough, hoarseness, and difficult breathing. The illness is caused by infection of the upper airway in the region of the larynx (voice box), with infection sometimes spreading into the lower airway to the trachea (windpipe).
Croup, which is marked by a harsh, repetitive cough similar to the noise of a seal barking, can be scary for both children and their parents. After all, attacks of croup may jar your children awake at night and leave them gasping for breath.. The harsh, barking cough of croup is the result of swelling around the vocal cords (larynx) and windpipe (trachea). When the cough reflex forces air through this narrowed passage, the vocal cords vibrate with a barking noise. Because children have small airways to begin with, those younger than age 5 are most susceptible to having more symptoms with croup. Croup is most common in children age 5 and younger - particularly those who were born prematurely. Because of their smaller airways, signs and symptoms are typically most severe in children age 3 and younger.. The classic sign of croup is a loud, harsh, barking cough - which often comes in bursts at night. Your childs breathing may be labored or noisy. Fever and a hoarse voice are common, too. ...

Is 7 too old for croup? DS (dear son) never had it as a baby, but he definitely has that barking cough now. It sounds so awful. For the record, I plan to take him back to the doctor tomorrow. He was already there last week. But I was just curious if croup was a possibility. I always hear of it happening in babies/toddlers.

Acute spasmotic laryngitis, also known as spasmotic croup, is similar to viral croup and may be a variant of it. Unlike viral croup, however, it is characterized by acute attacks of inspiratory stridor that occur at night and subside in a short time, only to recur in subsequent nights. The children are usually between 1 and 3 years of age. The cause is viral in most instances, but allergic and psychologic factors appear to play an important role in some children.. The child usually is awakened from sleep with marked stridor and a harsh, barky, metallic cough. Cold-like symptoms, if present, are extremely mild, and fever is absent. Examination of the pharynx reveals only minimal, if any, edema. Acute spasm of the vocal cord adductors may be the cause, possibly triggered by allergy, viral infection, or gastroesophageal reflux. Recurrent episodes during the night for several days is the general rule, but some nights may be skipped between attacks.. Treatment at home by exposure to steam in the ...
Most often croup can be treated at home similarly to a cold. Using a humidifier and pushing fluids can help soothe your childs throat and lessen symptoms. Keeping your child calm is important because crying or agitation can make breathing more difficult. If your child has a fever, acetaminophen or ibuprofen (for children older than 6 months) can be used.. 2. Some parents try taking their child in a steamy bathroom or into the cool night air, but there is no research showing that these home remedies are helpful.. Croup is not contagious. However, it often is prompted by viral infections like cold or flu, which are contagious. Frequent hand-washing and a flu vaccine can help prevent these and, ultimately, croup.. In most cases, croup is a minor illness that will take a few days to get better. If a childs symptoms dont improve after five days, or if they worsen, call a pediatrician. Also, if stridor is present while resting, the child should see a doctor to ensure breathing isnt being ...

Isaac Can not seem to escape from getting croup. Last week on Thursday I took him to the doctor for a cough he had had for about a week, his Oxygen saturations were down to 83% which worried me and the doctor a bit. Isaac acted pretty normal but looked pale most of the weekend. Early Monday morning the virus turned into the croup. It was very scary due to the fact that he hadnt had croup for a few months and I had trouble finding tubes to hook up to the Nebulizer, he was in a terrible panic struggling to breathe and I was running out of time quickly. With direction from above I finally found what I needed under a mess in my room. I felt like an emotional wreck. I gave him the Dexamethazone shortly after and finally felt some relief. Isaac and I had a little nap & went to the Pediatrician around noon. Isaacs Pediatrician looked at him and noticed his oxygen saturations made it back up to 86% which helped me breathe a little easier. I was thankful he was doing much better. Isaac received his Flu ...

2418 children aged 0-14 years were admitted to hospital with respiratory infections; 2396 recovered and 22 (0·9%) died.. Previous respiratory illness had been experienced by 5·6%; 2·6% had congenital heart disease and 0·6% cystic fibrosis.. Antibiotics were given in every category of illness; the frequency varied from 68% in colds to 97% in pneumonia. Oxygen was given to 14% of children with croup, 29% with bronchiolitis and 13% with pneumonia. No child with upper respiratory infection or croup died. The case mortality in the 1295 children with lower respiratory infections was 1·7%: 0·6% in bronchitis, 0·7% in bronchiolitis, and 3·1% in pneumonia.. Pathogenic infective agents were isolated in half the deaths; and in 36% predisposing malformations or disease were present.. With a limited study of management and outcome deductions must be made with caution. It suggests, however, that therapy based on understanding of the infective agents and the respiratory dysfunction to which they give ...
Stridor is often most noticeable when the child cries or coughs. But in more severe cases of croup it can also occur when the child is resting or sleeping. Symptoms tend to be worse at night. Some children have cold-like symptoms for a few days before developing croup symptoms. These cold-like symptoms can include:. ...
A GP can diagnose croup by studying your childs symptoms, particularly the sound of their cough. They may also check your childs temperature for a fever and ask whether they have recently had a cold or viral infection.. In some cases, a pulse oximetry test may be carried out. This involves clipping a sensor onto your childs earlobe or finger to find out their oxygen levels. The test does not hurt and should not distress your child, and determines whether your child is absorbing enough oxygen into their blood.. Your GP will decide whether your child needs to be admitted to hospital or whether their croup is safe to treat at home.. You should not try to check your childs throat yourself, because it could trigger a spasm (sudden narrowing) of the airway. This could cause the airway to swell even more, making breathing even more difficult.. ...

Friday, November 18, 2005. (about 2 weeks after her first birthday) Emma got really sick and started throwing up, and by the end of the day she was very miserable. We remember she was tossing and turning alot for hours on end. By the afternoon the next day, we decided to take her to the after hours clinic because she hadnt improved any and had developed raspy breathing. We thought maybe we were dealing with croup, too. The after hours doctor listened to her lungs and said it probably was croup based on what we told him. She also had really bad thrush, but we assumed it was from the strong antibiotic she had been on post pneumonia. The doctor sent us home with a prescription for oral steroids. Something in Lisas gut didnt feel right about the steroids, and luckily we didnt give any to Emma (steroids raise blood sugars uncontrollably high and she was showing signs of acute diabetes melitis). By Sunday morning we started thinking the bug had passed through her because she had stopped throwing ...

A layer of onions sliced and brown sugar - a teaspoonful of the syrup is a dose. Put upon the chest a plaster of Scotch snuff. Grease a cloth three or four inches long, two or three wide ; sprinkle over it the snuff. Remove the plaster as soon as the stomach becomes nauseated.. The premonitory symptoms of croup are a shrill, sonorous cough, cold hands, and flushed face. The patient is not always sick, and is often gayer than usual. Use without delay a plaster of mustard upon the throat, or apply to the throat a strip of flannel dipped in turpentine or spirits of hartshorn.

HPIV3 is a respiratory virus causing airway diseases, including pneumonia, croup, and bronchiolitis, during infancy and childhood. Currently there is no effective vaccine or anti-viral therapy for this virus. Studies have suggested that poor T cell proliferation following HPIV3 infection is responsible for impaired immunological memory associated with this virus. We have previously demonstrated that NK cells mediate regulation of T cell proliferation during HPIV3 infection. Here we add to these studies by demonstrating that the regulation of T cell proliferation during HPIV3 infection is mediated via NK receptors NKp44 and NKp46 and involves the surface glycoprotein haemagglutinin-neuraminidase but not the fusion protein of the virus. These studies extend our knowledge of the regulatory repertoire of NK cells and provide mechanistic insights which may explain reoccurring failures of vaccines against this virus.
Welcome to the Project SAVE website! Thank you for your interest in research studies at the Center for Immunization Research (CIR).. Vaccines are one of the most important and affordable methods of preventing death and disability due to infectious diseases. Although there are many licensed vaccines, every year children and adults all over the world suffer from diseases for which we do not have effective vaccines.. For over 20 years, I have worked at the CIR as an investigator for various research studies. I have also been the Director of the CIR since 2007. At the CIR, we believe that developing new vaccines is necessary to save lives.. Currently, our dedicated faculty and staff conduct early stage studies of vaccines to prevent malaria, dengue, influenza, and diarrhea in people of all ages, and viral respiratory illness (croup, wheezing and pneumonia) in children. We hope that our research studies will help in the development of vaccines that will one day be used to prevent death and disability ...
Luckily (if I believed in luck), the steroids he received helped a lot, and after a day in the PICU, he headed for the stepdown unit and a night bonding with me and the friends and family who streamed through the door to visit him. While in the beginning the ER docs thought it was croup, the Pulmonologist we saw felt it was more likely a complication from his lengthy intubation at birth, and that some irritation or scar tissue in his trachea is putting him at a higher risk for upper airway restriction when he has an otherwise harmless illness, like a cold. He was incredibly helpful and got Seth feeling well as possible, considering the situation. On the x-rays, we saw that his trachea had what is called a steeple effect, where it is open at the bottom and narrows as it rises, and is very close to closed at the top ...

Needless to say we are not getting much sleep in the Kat household. They have her on two different breathing treatments that I have to alternate every 2 hours. One is straight saline the other is an albuterol type of medication to open up her airways. She is coping pretty well and taking her medicine when I tell her it is time. Poor thing, you can just see the sick in her eyes. ...

On the Friday the 24th Steve and I went to my dr one last time before my scheduled induction to see if things were progressing at all, and to have another chance to talk things over with him because I was so nervous. He was very kind and said if I didnt want to go through with the induction we didnt have to, but we decided to do it anyways. I was dilated 2 maybe 3, and 50% effaced, the three previous weeks I was dilated 1 maybe 2, so I didnt really take the dilation to mean anything, but it made me feel comfortable with the induction because I had a favorable Bishops score (which basically means favorable cervix and very likely to have a successful vaginal delivery if induced). So we went ahead and agreed with the induction scheduled for the next day. Friday night/Saturday morning Steve ended up calling in to work so hed be home and we could get things ready with kids and get to the hospital in time. Luckily he did this, because that night Desi woke up in the middle of the night with croup ...

Airway obstruction is a blockage of respiration in the airway. It can be broadly classified into being either in the upper airway or lower airway. Causes of upper airway obstruction include foreign body aspiration, blunt laryngotracheal trauma, penetrating laryngotracheal trauma, tonsillar hypertrophy, paralysis of the vocal cord or vocal fold, acute laryngotracheitis such as viral croup, bacterial tracheitis, epiglottitis, peritonsillar abscess, pertussis, retropharyngeal abscess, spasmodic croup. In basic and advanced life support airway obstructions are often referred to as A-problems. Management of airways relies on both minimal-invasive and invasive techniques. Lower airway obstruction is mainly caused by increased resistance in the bronchioles (usually from a decreased radius of the bronchioles) that reduces the amount of air inhaled in each breath and the oxygen that reaches the pulmonary arteries. It is different from airway restriction (which prevents air from diffusing into the ...
Dexamethasone is used to treat many inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and bronchospasm.[9] Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, a decrease in numbers of platelets due to an immune problem, responds to 40 mg daily for four days; it may be administered in 14-day cycles. It is unclear whether dexamethasone in this condition is significantly better than other glucocorticoids.[10] It is also given in small amounts[11] before and/or after some forms of dental surgery, such as the extraction of the wisdom teeth, an operation which often leaves the patient with puffy, swollen cheeks. Dexamethasone is commonly given as a treatment for croup in children, as a single dose can reduce the swelling of the airway to improve breathing and reduce discomfort.[12] It is injected into the heel when treating plantar fasciitis, sometimes in conjunction with triamcinolone acetonide. It is useful to counteract allergic anaphylactic shock, if given in high doses. It is present in ...

The rationale for early elective intubation before signs of airway obstruction occur [7-9] is lack of reliable criteria for discriminating, at presentation, patients who may sustain a sudden airway obstruction [28] from those whose course may be benign. A fraction of patients (e.g., 13 of 240 in the study by Mayo-Smith et al., [1] 12 of 143 in the study by Andreassen et al., [23] 1 of 29 in the study by Dort et al., [15] 0 of 110 in the study by Frantz et al., [14] and 0 of 24 in our study) who initially receive medical management alone may develop signs of airway compromise and be deemed to require an artificial airway. Some of them may not receive an artificial airway in a timely manner and potentially may experience serious morbidity or die. Conversely, elective intubation in patients with acute epiglottitis is not benign and is associated with a tangible risk for mortality and morbidity. Love et al. [25] reported a patient with acute epiglottitis who developed airway obstruction on induction ...
Patient: If you keep getting laryngitis too much what happens and how can I prevent it from coming back. Doctor: Welcome to Ask The Doctor.We are here to help you on this medical health advice platform.Laryngitis that persists for more than 3 weeks is known as chronic laryngitis. This is most of the times Irritant Laryngitis that is caused by some allergen that is causing the continuous irritation. Most commonly it is caused by smoke, chemical fumes exposure, Acid reflux, smoking, excessive voice abuse like in teachers, singers. So, every case of Chronic Laryngitis needs evaluation of the formation of any vocal cord polyp. This required an OPD procedure called as Indirect Laryngoscopy that can evaluate the presence of any vocal cord nodule or polyp. Treatment of Chronic Laryngitis is mostly supportive. We advise our patients to give voice rest, to do warm saline gargles on a daily basis. Anti allergies like Levocetirizine also helps. Corticosteroid gargles are given to people who are found to ...
