My partner of 38 years was diagnosed January 2014 while in the hospital because he couldn't breathe. I don't know what to do. He is overusing his oxygen now to the point he has CO2 Retention. He refuses to listen to me when I tell him he's using too much oxygen. He hallucinates all the time now and I'm afraid he's going to die. I talked with his oxygen specialist and all she says is, well, yes, he using too much but gives me no help. Just telling him he is overdoing the oxygen doesn't make him stop. When he screams at me and tells me he can't breathe I feel like I have no choice but to let him increase his oxygen level even though I know it's what's making him talk out of his mind. Does anyone have any advice for me?
