How do you identify that your baby has Shaken Baby Syndrome?
Babies with Shaken Baby syndrome often die from their injuries and it is a very serious medical condition. However, physicians can tell if a baby has been shaken - often from brain contusions or concussions, internal brain bleeding (hemorrhages), retinal hemorrhages (bleeding of the eyes). It is absolute physical abuse and suspicion should be immediately reported to medical professionals.

Answer . Very good question. It is possible. Anything is possible. I believe this is a chemical imbalance, so it is possible. I wish an expert would elaborate on this. If antisocial is due to a chemical imbalance, then might shaking interfere with chemical pathways? An expert would know. Either w…ay, everyone's knows to never shake a baby. It is extremely dangerous. The person who would shake a baby, is probably antisocial. Hope this helps some. (MORE)
Answer . I found this:. ". The Moses syndrome should not be confused with the baby Moses syndrome (the hope-in-a-basket fallacy), a kind of defense mechanism whereby one deceives oneself into inaction by the wishful thought that somebody else will eventually come along to solve your pro…blems for you and save you from disaster.".

Most infants die within a short time due to skin infections. The modern science has found ways to grow the harlequin child's regullary, so some are in the adult age. There is no cure for the disease, but the effects will start getting weaker in old age.
Can a mother who smokes Meth with unborn baby are there injurys of defects of shaken baby sydromone?
I think you're a little confused. A baby born to a mother who did Meth in pregnancy is a drug-baby. Shaken baby syndrome happens when someone physically shakes an innocent baby and it's brain actually is injured.. Answer. A baby born to a mother who smoked meth can have many defects. In fact th…e brain of the baby can be affected. However, the brain of the baby is not bruised and bleeding, it is usually a developemental defect of some sort.. A baby that suffers from shaken baby syndrome often has a brain injury. The brain of this baby gets bruised and battered from hitting the inside of the skull. Sometimes the brain swells and bleeds causing further injury to the brain.. Some one who is medically trained should be able to tell the difference between problems caused by meth and the problems caused by shaken baby syndrome (MORE)
"shaken baby syndrome" is when a baby is shaken in a violent motion that causes death or serious injury to the brain. Typically a child will have retinal bleeding, brain bleeding and brain swelling (which typically does the most damage).
Why do twin newborn babies have a higher chance of getting Shaken Baby Syndrome that single infants?
Multiples are always at a higher risk for any form of neglect or abuse. The answer is simple, multiples always cry twice as much, twice as many diapers, everything is times two or three or whatever the number. Also the reason has to do with the fact that the twins are smaller meaning the are more at… risk for other health complications in addition to all the normal stuff we deal with when we have a newborn.

I would say "NO". I have applied brakes on a "wash-board" gravel road that shook the car very hard. If the baby is strapped into an approved car seat that is mounted to a standar car seat, the vibration should not be a problem.
What is blue baby syndrome?. This is something caused by water pollution causing a pregnant womens baby suffercate before its born.
2% of unborn babies with Turners survive to birth. Babies with Turners who survive to birth live.
Well, first, if your already pregnant, you can get a test and they will be able to tell you if you have a child with Down Syndrome or not. But, if you just gave birth to the baby, the doctors would do some tests on the baby that could take several tests, but, you could tell just by looking at your c…hild because people with Down Syndrome have a deformed face. But, their are several other disabilities that involve chromosomes that deform the face, so that's why the doctors do the testing to make sure. (MORE)
Pretty self explanatory, "shaken baby syndrome" is when a child is shaken in a violent motion that causes death or serious injury to the brain. Typically a child will have retinal bleeding, brain bleeding and brain swelling (which typically does the most damage).
No, not her own. However, it is possible to give birth to a baby, but only after IVF (in vitro fertilization).
Down Syndrome is present at birth, since it is the result of a genetic condition. It is merely a matter of your doctors recognizing it. In some children it is harder to recognize than in others.. Ask you doctor if you think it might be present.
on the scall from 1-10 I would say 5%. if you have a baby in that condition than you have half a chance of him or her coming out normal.
I don't think so. it can happen in babies before they are taken home from hospital. you can check the whole article here - http://articles.mercola.com/sites/vitalvotes/archive/2009/02/17/new-doubts-about-the-shaken-baby-theory.aspx
No, not normally. Here is an article that will help you more than i can:. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turner_syndrome
No. The main effects of klinefelter syndrome are development of small testicles, small penises, lower testosterone levels and reduced fertility . While that is true, there have been extreme advance in the use of fertility methods and while it isn't going to be 100% effective there is a higher chan…ce than 0%. . Additionally, penis size is irrelevant when talking about fertility. Most Klinefelter's patients have normal sizes. The problem is called hypogonadism; reduced use of the testicles. The above poster is correct that with genetic counseling, there are relatively good chances of finding viable spermatozoa. I believe that early diagnosis is essential to finding and freezing the spermatozoa, which increases chances by a good amount. Source - I have it. (MORE)
Down syndrome is present from conception, not from birth. It iscaused by an extra copy of the 21st chromosome.
It is less likely to happen if you have children early 1:2000 births at age 20 to 1:300 at age 35 and 1:40 at age 45
Better observation of the parents prebirth and post birth. Better observation of how they interact with each other before the baby arrives. A clear understanding of the metal ability of both parents to cope with stress and daily challenges the couple face before the baby arrives will provide a good …indicator of how they will face child rearing challenges down the road. Financial needs and relationship issues can lead to stress being taken out in a physical form against a baby by one or both parents. Mental maturity and the ability to clearly say they can't cope with a situation should be front and center priorities for parents at risk, as well as support for those who don't quite have it together. Ultimately if they can make a child they should be mentally and financially equipped to handle the stresses and successes of child rearing. When a clear a present danger exists there should be access to an alternate release for the stress and this is where the parents need to work as a team for the sake of the child. With counselling and guidance from family this issue should be a non issue, everyone chips in to raise a happy and healthy baby. (MORE)
Yes, very easily. Shaking can cause diffuse axonal injury, which is a stretching of the thin, developing axonal nerves in the infant brain. This is identified at autopsy. Shaking incidents that lead to death cause brain hemmoraging and edema (swelling) and retinal hemorrhaging. This is similar to ot…her sudden-acceleration/deceleration type injuries (such as car accidents), but no other condition is truly the same has Shaken Baby Syndrome. (MORE)
Is shaken baby syndrome a cluster of serious injuries that occurs when an infant or child is shaken violently?
Shaken baby syndrome (SBS) is a cluster of serious injuries thatoccurs when an infant or child is shaken violently. True
No in the first place a baby's head is disproportionately large if looked at by adult standards. shaking a baby may cause brain damage however it wont make a baby's head bigger then it is supposed to be. There are conditions where baby's and children have much bigger heads then normal but these have… nothing to do with shaken baby syndrome. (MORE)

Shaken baby syndrome is the name given to a form of child abuse that occurs when an infant or small child is what?
Shaken..as in picked up and shaken so that the head of the child is thrown to and fro causing the brain to slosh backwards and forwards inside the skull resulting in brain damage and in many cases death.
The baby can have severe brain damage for the rest of their life. They may become blind, or they could have motor impairment (i.e. cerebral palsey) and they may have some cognitive impairments.
Nothing good, the brain can become bruised, start bleeding and swell inside the sckull causing brain trauma, and life long injury. DON'T DO IT, IF YOU WITNESS IT REPORT IT, THOSE THAT DO IT ARE PATHETIC
Yes, it's possible to do to any living animal. Especially, it they are very young. You can do serious damage to the brain when a small animal or baby is shaken, it could possibly happen to yourself as well.
You Check the color of the spider, it is gonna be the same color of a adult spider. Or bring a book about Black Widows with you!
Both are very bad, but I believe you are asking which is worse - shaking or striking a baby. Depending on the severity of a beating, the majority of infants and children survive abusive events (though abdominal injuries are particularly lethal). In shaking events, there is a 20-25% chance of death… - much higher than striking. (MORE)
Here is an appropriate conclusion for a (hopefully) well-researched paper on SBS: Since medical doctors have initially named the condition of Shaken Baby Syndrome, it has been commonly known that this diagnosis is a result of an abusive act. Though defense experts in SBS cases try to sway juries th…at shaking a baby or child is not harmful or does not cause death, history tells us differently. It is important to look at what perpetrators in shaking cases confess to investigators. Such statements will allow us to learn more in depth what happens to children who suffer from shaking-related tragedies. Bottom line - shaking is violent, it happens daily and causes permanent injury and death. (MORE)
There is no way, it is a "mistake" in the genetic make-up of the child. but really there is no reason to avoid it.
Children with SBS may need physical therapy, speech therapy, vision therapy, and special education services
Shaken baby syndrome is preventable with public education. Adults must be actively taught that shaking a child is never acceptable and can cause severe injury or death.
The cause of the brain, neck, and spine damage that can result from shaken baby syndrome is brute force. The violent shaking of a baby by a much stronger adult conveys a tremendous amount of energy to the infant.
Diagnosis depends on the detection of a blood clot below the inner layer of the dura (a membrane that surrounds the brain), but external to the brain. The clot is also known as a subdural hematoma.
The eyes can also be damaged by the explosive energy of shaking. Retinal damage occur in 50-80% of cases. The damage can be so severe as to permanently blind an infant.
Shaken baby syndrome is also known as abusive head trauma, shaken brain trauma, pediatric traumatic brain injury , whiplash shaken infant syndrome, and shaken impact syndrome.
Initially, treatment is provided on an emergency basis. Life-saving measures can include stopping internal bleeding in the brain and relieving pressure that can build up in the brain because of bleeding and swelling of the brain.
Typically, babies with Zellweger syndrome have severe weakness, hyptonia (loss of muscle tone), and often have neonatal seizures
The shaking may occur as a response of frustration to the baby's inconsolable crying or as an action of routine abuse
The prognosis for children with shaken baby syndrome is usually poor. Twenty percent of cases result in death within the first few days. If an infant survives, he or she will most often be left with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
No. The type of shaking in an earthquake is not the same as the type needed to cause shaken baby syndrome.
A shaken baby may present one or more signs, including vomiting; difficulty breathing, sucking, swallowing, or making sounds; seizures; and altered consciousness
Physicians earlier labeled these injuries as accidental, but as more about child abuse became known, more cases of this syndrome were properly diagnosed
No way! . If the baby is born then it may catch the syndrome aswell...... moving on to the next one
No they have a specific gene that gives them immunity to this. It is now being reasearched also Asians have a very low rate of this occurence.
Down Syndrome is relatively common in babies. Research shows that approximately 1 in 830 newborns are affected. It is one of the most common birth defects.
You can't - so long as there are people capable of shaking a babyto stop it crying ! Not all cases are reported or investigated.
