Was looking a little pale when picked him up from nursery and said his chest hurt Didn't want no tea so just gave him some fruit. He then started coughing and wheezing couldn't catch his breath and was starting to look panicky. I have given him his nebuliser and some prednisolone. Question is would you take him to A&E to be checked out or just keep a close eye on.
He's a bit brighter able to talk but just got a real deap rough sounding cough. I was thinking just keep an eye. Shall I give him neb before bed or just normal inhalors. Consultant told us not to ring nhs direct as they don't know his history.
well as long as he coping on inhalers he should be alright but if ventolin doesnt relieve wheeze breathlessnes after 2 puffs please dont mess about but get him straight to a&e. Good luck hope he well soon
We are home with a very grumpy little boy. The asthma attack was brought on by a chest infection By the time we got him to A&E he was really wheezing again so we got rushed through to resus but after two more nebs and some oxygen he umproved enough to be taken up to the ward. He managed on 4 hourly nebs then this afternoon just managed on his inhalors so we were allowed home with abs more steroids and orders to return if he gets worse.
