Hi, I am new to this forum and I was wondering if any could offer some advice. I am posting about my mum who is 80 years old and has suffered with her illness for about 10 years or more. She was hospitalised about a month ago with a severe lung infection and she was put on a drip. Her blood oxygen levels had dropped to 85. She isn't on home oxygen and my dad says she was gasping for breath at home. The hospital said they wouldn't put her on home oxygen. She was discharged after a week then she started to go downhill again, not eating chest filled with infected fluid and she became unresponsive sleeping all the time. She can't tolerate the portable nebuliser. My dad cared the parmenidic again and she was admitted again and put on oxygen and and she perked up and sated to eat again. They discharged her again without oxygen and she lasted a week and she's back in hospital now on an antibiotic drip because her lungs are so infected and full. As soon as they gave her oxygen she perked up once again. What I would like to know if anyone can help is if this keeps happening but they won't give mum oxygen, (which I understand isn't good for people with this illness) how wI'll they treat hER condition because she is getting ill without oxygen and her condition would become worse on home oxygen and the doctors in hospital are refusing to give her oxygen. My family are in dispair with it all because she is in and out of hospital and we don't seem to be getting any answers. Any advice would be appreciated.
