I am an EMT-B. My 10 year old daughter is having trouble breathing. She is fine during the day but at night she is using extra muscles and nasal flaring to breathe. I can here a slight strider in both lungs. Steaming up the bathroom helped the past two nights. She is able to sleep but has difficultly breathing while she is sleeping. She is making high pitched noises while breathing. During the day, I can also hear the high pitch but it is not as loud. She is not having any problem talking during the day, but at night she struggles with talking and breathing. I am guessing this is a viral infection of some sort but am wondering how long it will last. I live in a remote area with no roads where the only way out is by airplane or boat, 50 miles to town. Any suggestions.
