What is the treatment for shaken baby syndrome?
Initially, treatment is provided on an emergency basis. Life-saving measures can include stopping internal bleeding in the brain and relieving pressure that can build up in the brain because of bleeding and swelling of the brain.

Answer . Very good question. It is possible. Anything is possible. I believe this is a chemical imbalance, so it is possible. I wish an expert would elaborate on this. If antisocial is due to a chemical imbalance, then might shaking interfere with chemical pathways? An expert would know. Either w…ay, everyone's knows to never shake a baby. It is extremely dangerous. The person who would shake a baby, is probably antisocial. Hope this helps some. (MORE)
"shaken baby syndrome" is when a baby is shaken in a violent motion that causes death or serious injury to the brain. Typically a child will have retinal bleeding, brain bleeding and brain swelling (which typically does the most damage).

Why do twin newborn babies have a higher chance of getting Shaken Baby Syndrome that single infants?
Multiples are always at a higher risk for any form of neglect or abuse. The answer is simple, multiples always cry twice as much, twice as many diapers, everything is times two or three or whatever the number. Also the reason has to do with the fact that the twins are smaller meaning the are more at… risk for other health complications in addition to all the normal stuff we deal with when we have a newborn.

I would say "NO". I have applied brakes on a "wash-board" gravel road that shook the car very hard. If the baby is strapped into an approved car seat that is mounted to a standar car seat, the vibration should not be a problem.
If you are asking can a baby who has Turner Syndrome get any treatment then the answer is no. BUT, you can help the baby get better though there is no cure. If done early enough (if she's a baby then yes) she can get growth hormones. When shes 12-13 she can get an estroen replacement.
Pretty self explanatory, "shaken baby syndrome" is when a child is shaken in a violent motion that causes death or serious injury to the brain. Typically a child will have retinal bleeding, brain bleeding and brain swelling (which typically does the most damage).
on the scall from 1-10 I would say 5%. if you have a baby in that condition than you have half a chance of him or her coming out normal.
I don't think so. it can happen in babies before they are taken home from hospital. you can check the whole article here - http://articles.mercola.com/sites/vitalvotes/archive/2009/02/17/new-doubts-about-the-shaken-baby-theory.aspx
Better observation of the parents prebirth and post birth. Better observation of how they interact with each other before the baby arrives. A clear understanding of the metal ability of both parents to cope with stress and daily challenges the couple face before the baby arrives will provide a good …indicator of how they will face child rearing challenges down the road. Financial needs and relationship issues can lead to stress being taken out in a physical form against a baby by one or both parents. Mental maturity and the ability to clearly say they can't cope with a situation should be front and center priorities for parents at risk, as well as support for those who don't quite have it together. Ultimately if they can make a child they should be mentally and financially equipped to handle the stresses and successes of child rearing. When a clear a present danger exists there should be access to an alternate release for the stress and this is where the parents need to work as a team for the sake of the child. With counselling and guidance from family this issue should be a non issue, everyone chips in to raise a happy and healthy baby. (MORE)
Babies with Shaken Baby syndrome often die from their injuries and it is a very serious medical condition. However, physicians can tell if a baby has been shaken - often from brain contusions or concussions, internal brain bleeding (hemorrhages), retinal hemorrhages (bleeding of the eyes). It is abs…olute physical abuse and suspicion should be immediately reported to medical professionals. (MORE)
While there is no cure for Marfan Syndrome (because it is a genetic disorder), there are ranges of treatment options can decrease (and even sometimes prevent) complications.
Yes, very easily. Shaking can cause diffuse axonal injury, which is a stretching of the thin, developing axonal nerves in the infant brain. This is identified at autopsy. Shaking incidents that lead to death cause brain hemmoraging and edema (swelling) and retinal hemorrhaging. This is similar to ot…her sudden-acceleration/deceleration type injuries (such as car accidents), but no other condition is truly the same has Shaken Baby Syndrome. (MORE)
Is shaken baby syndrome a cluster of serious injuries that occurs when an infant or child is shaken violently?
Shaken baby syndrome (SBS) is a cluster of serious injuries thatoccurs when an infant or child is shaken violently. True
No in the first place a baby's head is disproportionately large if looked at by adult standards. shaking a baby may cause brain damage however it wont make a baby's head bigger then it is supposed to be. There are conditions where baby's and children have much bigger heads then normal but these have… nothing to do with shaken baby syndrome. (MORE)
Baby's effect on shaken baby syndrome (a syndrome a baby receives when a parent shakes their baby out of frustration, anger, or annoyance) can cause the baby awful brain damage that is very painful and stays with them their whole life, can cause the baby damage to their neck, and spinal cord, and if… done excessively, can cause death to baby.

Shaken baby syndrome is the name given to a form of child abuse that occurs when an infant or small child is what?
Shaken..as in picked up and shaken so that the head of the child is thrown to and fro causing the brain to slosh backwards and forwards inside the skull resulting in brain damage and in many cases death.
The baby can have severe brain damage for the rest of their life. They may become blind, or they could have motor impairment (i.e. cerebral palsey) and they may have some cognitive impairments.
Nothing good, the brain can become bruised, start bleeding and swell inside the sckull causing brain trauma, and life long injury. DON'T DO IT, IF YOU WITNESS IT REPORT IT, THOSE THAT DO IT ARE PATHETIC
Yes, it's possible to do to any living animal. Especially, it they are very young. You can do serious damage to the brain when a small animal or baby is shaken, it could possibly happen to yourself as well.
Both are very bad, but I believe you are asking which is worse - shaking or striking a baby. Depending on the severity of a beating, the majority of infants and children survive abusive events (though abdominal injuries are particularly lethal). In shaking events, there is a 20-25% chance of death… - much higher than striking. (MORE)
Here is an appropriate conclusion for a (hopefully) well-researched paper on SBS: Since medical doctors have initially named the condition of Shaken Baby Syndrome, it has been commonly known that this diagnosis is a result of an abusive act. Though defense experts in SBS cases try to sway juries th…at shaking a baby or child is not harmful or does not cause death, history tells us differently. It is important to look at what perpetrators in shaking cases confess to investigators. Such statements will allow us to learn more in depth what happens to children who suffer from shaking-related tragedies. Bottom line - shaking is violent, it happens daily and causes permanent injury and death. (MORE)
Children with SBS may need physical therapy, speech therapy, vision therapy, and special education services
Shaken baby syndrome is preventable with public education. Adults must be actively taught that shaking a child is never acceptable and can cause severe injury or death.
There is no standard mainstream treatment recommended for couvade syndrome because it is not usually mentioned in medical textbooks.
No cure yet. Therapies to improve muscle tone and feeding techniques to improve weight gain. Strict control of food intake to prevent obesity (growth hormone therapy improves muscle tone). Special education.
No treatments but relief of symptoms. Anti-inflammatory medications, hot packs, stretching exercises, and physical therapy. Possibly new braces, wheelchairs, motorized scooters, ventilator.
I have TAR Syndrome and I asked my doctor if there's any treatmentsor a cure for it and he said that I would have to have surgery onmy arms and they would have to straighten my arms because my armsare bent. I don't know about the blood platelet though.
Standard treatments for individuals with WAS include antibiotics for infections and platelet transfusions to limit bleeding.
The cause of the brain, neck, and spine damage that can result from shaken baby syndrome is brute force. The violent shaking of a baby by a much stronger adult conveys a tremendous amount of energy to the infant.
Diagnosis depends on the detection of a blood clot below the inner layer of the dura (a membrane that surrounds the brain), but external to the brain. The clot is also known as a subdural hematoma.
The eyes can also be damaged by the explosive energy of shaking. Retinal damage occur in 50-80% of cases. The damage can be so severe as to permanently blind an infant.
Shaken baby syndrome is also known as abusive head trauma, shaken brain trauma, pediatric traumatic brain injury , whiplash shaken infant syndrome, and shaken impact syndrome.
There is no cure for post-polio syndrome. Efforts are primarily directed at retaining mobility and improving patient comfort.
Treatment for restless legs syndrome is generally twopronged, consisting of making lifestyle changes and using medications to relieve some of the symptoms.
There is no cure for Reye syndrome. Treatment is considered supportive, meaning that treatment is given to address the specific complications, in order to try to prevent progression of the liver and brain damage and permanent effects.
Neurologic TOS requires outpatient referral and conservative outpatient physiotherapy. Vascular thoracic outlet syndrome requires more urgent care that typically includes immediate heparinization, vascular surgery consultation, color flow.
The shaking may occur as a response of frustration to the baby's inconsolable crying or as an action of routine abuse
Aim of treatment is to alleviate symptoms, modify underlying risk factors, and prevent complications and future strokes.
The prognosis for children with shaken baby syndrome is usually poor. Twenty percent of cases result in death within the first few days. If an infant survives, he or she will most often be left with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
More mildly affected individuals will require no treatment. Other individuals may need surgery to improve cervical stability, correct scoliosis, and improve any constriction of the spinal cord.
The ability to smile has been restored in some cases of Moebius syndrome by surgery which transfers nerve and muscle from the thigh to the face. Other surgeries can be used to treat eye, limb, and jaw problems
No. The type of shaking in an earthquake is not the same as the type needed to cause shaken baby syndrome.
A shaken baby may present one or more signs, including vomiting; difficulty breathing, sucking, swallowing, or making sounds; seizures; and altered consciousness
Treatment is focused on slowing the progression of the disease. Treatment is most effective when begun early, before kidney function has deteriorated to a point where the kidney is permanently damaged, and dialysis is necessary
Some of the current drugs used to treat Behcet's syndrome include corticosteroids, cyclosporine, azathioprine, chlorambucil, interferon alpha, thalidomide, levamisole and pulse cyclophosphamide.
Physicians earlier labeled these injuries as accidental, but as more about child abuse became known, more cases of this syndrome were properly diagnosed

Emergency medical personnel should be called as soon as the infant is discovered not breathing. Infant CPR should be started right away. Seek medical care right away even if the baby starts breathing again.
You can't - so long as there are people capable of shaking a babyto stop it crying ! Not all cases are reported or investigated.
