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.

Stay tuned for updates.
