Is asthma more harmful to babies?
Babies who develop asthma are at a higher risk for respiratory problems. My son developed a respiratory virus (RSV) at the age of five months. It was sudden and we couldn't see it coming. The first warning sign of RSV is short breaths, inability to catch one's breath, eg: panting. After such an illness an infant will 90% of the time develop ashtma. Other factors that contribute to the development of asthma are family history, living environment, and diet. Food allergies tend to set off asthma. My son is three years old now and is on an Albuterol "Quick Relief" inhaler and a Nebulizer to administer his other medicines. If you suspect your baby has asthma, get it checked out. If when he cries for a while he starts coughing relentlessly, that is a sign. If when he is playful and is laughing alot and this leads to constant coughing, this is another sign. Asthma is very harmful for babies if left unchecked.
Do Babies must learn to crawl in order to develop properly?
Asked in Biology, Respiratory System
Why is the respiratory system is not functional until the sixth month or later?
In the womb, the baby is encased in a sack called the Amnion. This sack is filled with fluid called Amniotic fluid, so the baby is encased in water and can not breath. The baby's blood supply is connected to that of the mother by the umbilical cord and the placenta. The baby gets its oxygen from the mother by this supply and therefore does not need to breath while it is in the womb. Thus the respiratory system only needs to develop fully later in the pregnancy (in preparation for the baby being born - when it must take its first breath) and it is therefore not functional earlier. Babies born too soon have great respiratory problems.
Can a 23 week old fetus survive?
Yes there have been babies this young surviving, that is why there should not be abortions this late in pregnancy. However, the babies that do survive are likely to have undeveloped organs so they require intensive care for a long time and they can have problems with their heart & lungs and other organs as they develop later.
