Acibadem Maslak Hospital Otorhinolaryngology Specialist Dr. Ömer Faruk Ünal states that there are three major problems affecting infant breathing: laryngomalacia, congenital nostril closed and congenital narrowing of the trachea.

Babies sleep soundly when they breathe freely. However, if the baby has trouble breathing, he sleeps in a position to breathe comfortably. Either he throws his head backwards, or he sleeps in a situation that causes his ribs to collapse. In this case, while breathing, a whistling sound, whistling sound. It is turning blue.

If the child has a cold or flu, edema develops in the air, if there is severe respiratory distress, if the trachea narrows, it is necessary to see if there is a problem.
Nasal flesh makes breathing difficult

Long-term breathing is difficult to connect
“Congenital heart anomalies eyen, which could not be treated successfully in the past, are now treated very successfully and babies born with this problem can be brought back to life. Airway stenosis may develop as a result of inhalation of these babies who have to stay in intensive care for a long time and be connected to the breathing apparatus by putting a tube in the mouth connected to the breathing apparatus. It is frequently seen in intensive care units. The airways are obstructed, they are punctured in their airways and sent home, but their condition needs to be closely monitored. Otherwise, they may have to breathe through the hole in their necks for life. If these patients are also monitored by an ENT specialist in the intensive care unit, the development of shortness of the trachea can be prevented.
