Tis the season to de-sat Fa la la la la, la la la la
Posted May 29 2010 12:00am
Apparently tonight has NOT been a good night for desaturations! I was off the vent a long time today, about 6 hours give or take a bit. And at the end I started desatting like a rock in water, I hit sats as low as 85 which are very bad for the brain! I quickly jumped and hit the panic button and turned on the O2 concentrator, the nurse standing by watching me run the “code” I have had desats like this recently but not this severe. I am having lots of secretions too so we are questioning if I have another infection, I JUST FINISHED A MONTH OF FREAKING TOBI NEBS!!! I am pissed if it is another infection! Oh well, Bactrim DS Here we go again probably. More news to come about this situation.
Currently I am satting at 94-96 on the vent with 50% O2 which is ATROCIOUS for pumping in that much O2, something is way wrong!
If this is like this still tomorrow morning we may consider going to the hospital.
