  • They need to go to the dr and get meds. They need to be tested first.

  • You can't really do anything about the RSV, the Dr should give them a nebulizer and meds. They need to go to the Dr. if the ER doc did not give them meds and a nebulizer...

  • There is nothing you can do about RSV except give supportive care to get through the illness. I work as an RN on a ped's floor in my hospital and RSV has his BIG time this week... 70% of the kids on the floor have RSV.

  • it's hard to tell you what to do since we can't see the kids. if their chests are retracting when they breathe, they need to go to the doctor or ER asap. my son has a history of RSV, and sometimes his wheezing wasn't so bad. he would keep playing and smile and be happy. sometimes his wheezing would be bad, his chest would retract, and he would throw up . we have had him hospitalized for it before but really there is nothing they can do there that can't be done at home besides monitoring oxygen levels. my son had nebulizer breathing treatments of albuterol when he had RSV. for sure i would call the mom and tell her what's going on. i can't tell from your post if you are saying you are babysitting them or what...?
