Can you get spinal meningitis from shaken baby syndrome?
Meningitis is caused by a bacteria or a virus.
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.
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.
What percentage of children with shaken baby syndrome die?
No. The type of shaking in an earthquake is not the same as the type needed to cause shaken baby syndrome.
It is not shaking baby it is shaken baby.
Why do twins have a higher chance of shaken baby syndrome than single infants?
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.
The driver seemed shaken after hitting the bridge. Shaken Baby Syndrome kills many infants.
NO! That will kill it. It's called Shaken baby syndrome.
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).
if your talking about babies, its shaken baby syndrome. Its where someone shakes a baby and the baby dies.
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.
Could be: Sick Building Syndrome Short Bowel Syndrome Shaken Baby Syndrome Straight Back Syndrome
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.
Child abuse, and possibly negligent homicide.
When a baby or young child becomes so afraid that he or she shakes and trembles he or she is suffering from Shaken Baby Syndrome?
I do not think this is true

Evelynn Biondo, a shaken baby syndrome suvivor, is 3 years old.
You can't shake a baby because its brain did not fully develop yet nor the skull. If you shake the baby it will get Shaken Baby Syndrome which will lead to death.
Can a mother who smokes Meth with unborn baby are there injurys of defects of shaken baby sydromone?
I think you're a little confused. A baby born to a mother who did Meth in pregnancy is a drug-baby. Shaken baby syndrome happens when someone physically shakes an innocent baby and it's brain actually is injured. Answer A baby born to a mother who smoked meth can have many defects. In fact the brain of the baby can be affected. However, the brain of the baby is not bruised and bleeding, it is usually… Read More
September Watson, a victim and survivor of shaken baby syndrome, is 11 years old.
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.
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.
Can the tugging motion of trying to get something away from a 4 year old result in shaken baby syndrome?
No cuz its not an infant
No. This can and probably will result in a birth defect, such as S.B.S. (Shaken Baby Syndrome) if you jog on a regular basis.
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.
long term effects can be mental retardation or also can have cerebral palsy
McKynzee Goin, a worst-case shaken baby syndrome victim from Medford, Oregon, is 7 years old.
Children with SBS may need physical therapy, speech therapy, vision therapy, and special education services
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 other sudden-acceleration/deceleration type injuries (such as car accidents), but no other condition is truly the same has Shaken Baby Syndrome.
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
i wouldn't. the baby could suffer from brain trauma ever heard of shaken baby syndrome? well it can happen before the baby is born as well. i wouldn't risk your health or the babys if i were you
In the 1960s, Shaken Baby syndrome was named after many children suffered from the apparent effects of being shaken by parents when they did something wrong. It inflicted head and neck injuries akin to whiplash. It leads to brain damage because the brain can be deprived of oxygen.
yes it will cause birth deformities in the babies chest and facial region. Can also cause downs and spinal meningitis, stillbirth, and miscarriage
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.
Yes. Peter Junior, although Peter killed him through shaken baby syndrome. Also, and even though he's unaware of it, Bertram was his son as a result of his donation to a sperm bank.
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.
Shaken Baby Syndrome is just one form of traumatic brain injury. There are many ways a person (or in this case young child) can suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and violent shaking is one of them. For more information on causes and types of TBI please see this link: http://www.brainandspinalcord.org/brain-injury/index.html
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.
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.
What type of doctors are authorized to perform lumbar punctures Ex internal medicine radiologists etc?
Lumbar puncture is usually done by neurologists for diagnostic purposes (for example: meningitis, encephalitis, Guillain Barre Syndrome), or follow up, or to administer chemotherapeutic drugs (in leukemia, for instance). Anesthesiologists also perform this procedure for a technique called spinal anesthesia where you can have your body operated while you are fully awake (commonly done in delivering a baby) Radiologists are also familiar with this procedure, since a certain kind of radiology examination (myelography) requires a… Read More
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.
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 that 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… Read More
it depends how hard you shake 'em
No u baby gonna die
Muscular dystrophy is a genetic disorder. There are several forms of this disorder. Spinal muscle atrophy is similar in some ways to MD, but it is seen in little children first. It is sometimes called "floppy baby" syndrome. This is also a genetic disorder. The neurons off the spinal cord are affected in spinal muscle atrophy. MD is caused by a problem with the muscles themselves and not with the neurons or nerves.
