Home H+8… ETCO2 madness… oh and new years and BATTERIES

Posted Dec 31 2009 10:37pm

Some of you are wondering at this point, what the hell is ETCO2 and why make a whole post dedicated to it and make new years second back seat.

Ever since we came home my ETCO2 numbers which SHOULD be 30-40 mmHg, which means how much CO2 (carbon dioxide) Is detected in the air i exhale have been above 40 or right near it. Every time I approach my doctor he is always along the lines of “I Control your ventilator not you” Translation “I control your breathing not you” Hmm, what’s wrong with this picture. I honestly think I am completely capable and knowledgeable  enough to run my own vent. So this is why I call this ETCO2 madness.

Happy new years, I got 4 batteries for my new blackberry, read it and weep, 6 batteries in all!
