Let's consider one of such diseases – the affective and respiratory attacks (ARA) at children of early age. This state (an illness it not to call absolutely correct) is shown by the sudden respiratory standstill arising at peak of a breath after the kid hit, transferred an unexpected fright or could not stop a hysterics. During rolling the child turns pale or becomes blue, than steadily plunges native into a panic.
Physicians are sure that the affective and respiratory syndrome can be considered as the early prerequisite of development of hysteria and unconscious states in the future. To understand that such ARP, pay attention to word meaning in its name. Affect call the strongest emotion not subject to control of the person, and the term "respiratory" is used for designation of everything that is related to respiratory organs. It turns out, ARP is a state when because of strong emotional excitement at the child breath process is broken.
In most cases attacks happen at the irritable, spoiled and whimsical children. For the first time it occurs during the period from 6 months to 1 year, similar delays of breath can remain till 4 – 6 years.
As ARP at the crying kid looks
In the main ARP arises when the child cannot stop strong crying, expressing rage or offense on the fact that it is not pleasant to it. At the time of such rough expression of emotions the kid suddenly sharply becomes silent and, opening a mouth as if fish, cannot squeeze out from herself a sound. From outside can seem as if he pretends to be, actually manifestation of ARP has involuntary character.
Breath at the child stops on 30 – 45 sec., the person thus turns pale or becomes blue that depends on a factor which influenced development of ARP. The type of an attack is determined by appearance of the crying kid. Conditionally affective and respiratory attacks divide on "pale" and "blue".
Respiratory standstill as "pale" ARP happens if the fidget fell or strongly hit. Painful reaction sometimes develops so quickly that the baby does not manage even to begin to cry, and it does not always probe pulse, and in general rolling reminds at the adult.
"Blue" attacks – peak of negative emotions of the child, such as offense, rage, disagreement. Most often kids of 1,5-2,5 years have manifestations of ARP of "blue" type. Without having opportunity to achieve the, the child shouts and cries. On the top point of faltering, but very deep breath the breath is involuntarily held, and on a face there is a cyanotic shade. At the same moment sometimes there is or, on the contrary, sharp decrease in a tone of muscles because of what the body of the child can be curved by an arch or become soft. Despite externally terrible picture ARP which to death frightens parents, in most cases kids recover independently.
ARP and health of the child
Doctors assure that similar attacks are an age state and for the general health of the kid any danger do not constitute. It is necessary to dial number only in case breath at the child broke more than for 1 minute. To the neurologist it is worth registering in reception if attacks happen more often than 1 time in 5–7 days and also if at the beginning, development or the termination of ARP there are unusual symptoms unusual for this attack.
During an affective and respiratory attack parents can help the child to overcome asthma: slightly to clap the kid on cheeks, to blow in a face, to sprinkle cool water, the "tickling" movements of hands to walk on a body. After the kid starts breathing and will recover, he needs to be embraced and a low voice to say any calming words. For anything it is impossible to show to the child the fear!
ARP and spasms
Sometimes the affective and respiratory attack is followed by spasms. Why so occurs? If breath of the kid during an attack got off more, than on 60 sec., he faints. In medical practice such state is known as an atonichesky not epileptic attack. It results from oxygen starvation of a brain because of respiratory standstill and carries out protective function. When the person is in a faint, the brain consumes much less oxygen, than usually.
The Atonichesky state is transformed further to the tonic. All muscles of a body strongly strain: the child is extended or curved by an arch. If the brain tests rather strong hypoxia, spasms begin. Externally it is shown by twitching of extremities and all body in general. In the same time because of lack of breath in an organism carbon dioxide at the expense of which spazmirovanny guttural muscles reflex relax collects – at the child it turns out to make a breath and to regain consciousness. After convulsive ARP the kid strong falls asleep and not less than 1,5-2 h sleep.
And though doctors claim that similar attacks do not bear danger to human life, to parents who saw how the spasm cramps a body of their child, from it it is not easier. To be convinced that with the kid everything is all right, consultation of the competent expert – the neurologist is necessary: sometimes the disease of nervous system are the cornerstone of similar convulsive attacks. In isolated cases children who had to test such attacks, in the future can have attacks of an epileptic etiology.
How to behave to parents
Telling about an affective and respiratory syndrome, InfoAdvisor.net emphasizes – roots of a problem have very specific character, and the reasons of this pathological state should be looked for not in the kid, and in that situation in which it grows and develops. The main mission for fight against ARP is assigned thus not to doctors, and to the victim's parents.
During scientific researches scientists found out that parents have 25–27% of the children suffering from ARP in the past there were same attacks. But it does not testify at all that attacks are descended. Most pertinent in this case to speak about traditions of education in a family where two generations – parents and children - suffered from an identical problem in due time. Doctors agree in opinion that as the major factor causing rudiments of children's hysteria in the form of ARP it is possible to consider the conflicts of parents, stressful situations for the child in a family, his excessive guardianship by parents.
The affective and respiratory attack is generally neurotic frustration therefore parents have to pay paramount attention to unostentatious correction of psychological attitude of the kid.
When you, unfortunately, became the witness of ARP at the child, at once think how you build the relations with the child. Perhaps you excessively sponsor him, trying to protect even from insignificant struggles of life, or too indulge, anything to him without refusing? Especially it is necessary to address to the psychologist if in a family there is no mutual understanding between spouses.
Huge value for development of strong children's mentality has the correct day regimen based on the balanced physical and intellectual activity. Watch closely the kid during the day – so you will be able to foresee and not to allow developments of ARP. For example, the hungry and tired child will be capricious more, than what was fed in time and put to bed. And in all the rest: collecting on a visit or in shop – everything has to bring to , a campaign to the kid the smallest discomfort.
Surely speak with the little man about his feelings. In certain cases hysterics appear and continue to repeat with an enviable regularity only because the child cannot master the feelings and in time stop. Help a kaprizula to understand that all his emotions – anger, frustration, offense – are natural, and anyway it is possible to cope with them. Surely teach the child to art of a compromise which will help out it in the future more than once.
At heavy attacks of a delay of breath the doctor can appoint to the kid a course of treatment with application of neuroprotectors and soothing preparations (Pantogama, , Pantokaltsin) lasting 1,5–2 months.
However if mother is able not to admit the child to that dangerous side behind which whims and hysterics begin, it is quite possible to do without drug treatment.
