Breathing Treatments Available at Minis Pediatric Walk-In Clinic
OPEN EVERY DAY 9am – 7:30pm
Some children and newborns may face difficulties breathing as opposed to their peers. Thankfully, there’s always a solution, especially with help from the doctors at Minis Pediatric Walk-In Clinic.
We provide specialized treatments in order to successfully address breathing-related issues. If your child has asthma, their airways can easily get inflamed, which can make them more susceptible to allergies and other kinds of respiratory conditions. We offer emergency care to help children tackle these problems and to improve your child’s breathing overall.
Signs Your Child May Require Breathing Treatments
Breathing problems in children can mean many things. There are several signs and symptoms to look out for and it is important to understand what they mean.
From wheezing to colored mucus, your child may also be dealing with:
- Severe breathing difficulties
- Grunting while trying to breathe
- Fast breathing
- Inability to wake up or stay awake
- Breathing stops for more than 20 seconds
- Shorter pauses in their breathing
- Pale or blue skin
We Treat The Following Inhalation Problems
We don’t want your child to suffer from these problems and symptoms any longer. Because of that, we are able to treat the following:
This condition narrows the airways, causing them to swell. This can also produce extra mucus and make it hard to breathe. Severe cough and wheezing can happen as a result.
This may occur when your child is sick with a sore throat, fever, the common cold, or strep throat. If wheezing becomes severe and is a result of not being able to breathe, bring your child in to receive immediate medical attention.
Coughing, especially if it’s severe, can irritate the airways and cause them to narrow, similar to asthma. If your child is always coughing, it is important that you have them seen by a doctor right away to find what the problem is.
Shortness of breath
Shortness of breath can be a result of many things, such as asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, anemia, inhalation injury, allergic reactions, arrhythmia, or other kinds of conditions. The minute you notice your child feels short on breath, take them to an emergency center right away.
Other inhalation problems
Runny nose, congestion, and sneezing may also bring about some difficulty in breathing and clear passageways. If your child is experiencing any of these symptoms, you should have them seen by a doctor to determine the best plan of action and treatment.
