Pierre Robin syndrome (SPR) can be a bit strange noises in the ear. However SPR some cases never met one of them in the window in this topic.
Have you heard of cases of babies born with a small chin? This is what is meant by the Pierre Robin syndrome. According to Dr. W. Muljono, SpA., Down syndrome is a congenital abnormality or that occurs in some parts of the baby’s mouth, the lower jaw and palate.
Therefore, the SPR also has several properties. One of them, the patient has a small jaw (micrognathia), which automatically makes the oral cavity so narrow that the language is too big. “This state is in medical terms is called macroglossis nickname. Pseudo means false or falsified, while the average deviation of the great language / macroglossis thick. In other words, the actual size of the SPR patients with normal language, but also because that close the mouth, tongue, so it looks too big. ”
All properties abnormalities associated with SPR roof of the oral cavity is normally deactivated. perforated or split, or sometimes just a high concave shape or (hollow) with or without cleft palate.
People with PRS can be detected by a typical penampilanmya. “Once a few anomalies were born in his face, looks like a small chin and rather big nose” Children’s Hospital International Trade Bintaro, Tangerang said.
All properties that cause some impact. The most obvious glossoptosis phenomenon or the base of the tongue may occur falls to block the airway in the throat. Therefore, babies with SPR is often difficult to breathe. Even airway obstruction at birth, could not immediately cry like babies in general.
Screams could for babies with SPR, in fact, even the open air to breathe so. Instead, when he slept, the air is treated again snoring so frequently, it is closed. Therefore, the position recommended for infants is tilted or ditengkurapkan RPD. The reason, gravity pulls the tongue forward to keep the airway open. “The situation glossoptosis easily connected to the airways when the baby is back in the state. With its breath ditengkurapkan probably more comfortable.”
Other ronggal SPR effects connected with a narrow mouth, so patients often have difficulty eating / drinking. “Babies who suffer from SPR be difficult to vacuum sucking mechanism is in fact quite complex. Should mouth, sucking nipples, pushing back the tab and then can enjoy a drink. ”
Not surprisingly, women often diwanti SPR warned to pay attention to type of drink / eat the baby so as not to choke. “When the accelerator, milk introduce the lungs as a result other than shortness of breath, a baby can have a productive cough. Finally healed, was aspiration pneumonia or pneumonia.
Like most of the recommended intake, the babies fed and watered SPR give before actually hungry or thirsty. Position in a vertical position with the head slightly upward. This position makes the milk in the esophagus, but does not flow into the nose.
perforated ceiling must be stressed, babies / concave’ll swallow more air, frequent disendawakan needs. Do not worry if the activities Food / Beverage requires additional time because it is indeed patience and practice have to do this.
But unfortunately, these tips apply only babies with SPR condition is relatively smooth. If the disease is severe, it is necessary to pipe / tube directly into the stomach, so you do not have to go through the throat. “Of course, essential for patients with serious or not is a doctor. For example, a child with the concave roof, of course, the situation is easier than vent too.”
Another SPR effect is usually seen in the growth of children with teeth. State of the jaw, which is smaller than the upper jaw is irregular grow molars.
Other effects related to the debate accompanied by the sounds of the language. As we know, any event sounds the air through the oral cavity connected. For example, above the noise of the ‘m’ cooperation and the labia minora required to produce, while the sound “s” at the tip of the tongue is made on the back of the lower incisors. Another example is the “k” sound children requires coordination of the pharynx in the debate.
Regarding the patient has difficulty speaking normally SPR. The lyrics are usually not so obvious. Speech therapy may be helpful, but also recalled that Muljono SPR unnecessary patient always perfect in the debate. “Usually there are abnormalities in tow or two words, which is more commonly ‘r’.”
The need to observe RPD may cause side effects. Hypoxia or a lack of oxygen, one of them. If SPR is not quickly detected when the baby is born, it could be abused. Babies with SPR their position or even should be sloped ditengkurapkan ditelentangkan. As a result, the brain tissue has been the position of the tongue down and does not interfere with breathing tract.If in minutes, the baby can breathe oxygen deprivation and (microcephaly) broke wither.
The fight against this syndrome can be done with conservative treatment and surgery. What is meant by conservative treatment means, as already mentioned, this condition the baby is tilted in the correct position, or as ditengkurapkan. However, the difficult conditions people need to fix or RPD tongue pulled forward after being so attached covers more around the esophagus. Although cases of SPR are really badly in need of surgery.
Fortunately, this condition has not been resolved. With age, the oral cavity grow so that the size of a normal oral cavity is measured. “If the mouth is already widely so it is a problem, because the language of the size can be loaded into it.”
So say the same expectations SPR patients with other children. Or aesthetics can be slightly different, but many people with SPR can grow as usual. “Once I met a professor who suffer from disorders SPR, really.” In other words, if there are no side effects, the RPD patients like normal people live.
