My daughter was diagnosed with transient tachypnea 6 days ago after birth. Another x ray today revealed no improvement with reduction of fluid on lungs and a drop in saturated oxygen was observed. Doctors have put her back on oxygen and told me another week to clear. This seems a very long time for TTN to be a problem.....? What else could be issue?

My niece has been hospitalized since yesterday because she was throwing up blood and she got 2 blood transfussions yesterday and one today. The doctor said she has no iron at all and she has been having trouble breathing so she is now getting oxygen. What can these symptoms mean? The doctors say they still don't know what it is but they are running blood tests.
