Hi, my Dad was diagnosed two years ago with severe COPD. Last October he had an exasperation which landed him in intensive care. We found out that he was a CO2 retainer and now has a Bipap machine of a night.
I understand that after an exasperation your health takes a dip and knew that Dad's health would also deteriorate slightly but I am concerned every day.
He seems so very restricted. The weather never suits him - too cold/hot/windy/damp along with any kind of smell.
I have many questions that need answering!!! Will he end up needing oxygen or will the use of his Bipap eventually need increasing?
It worries me what might happen as he seems very severe to me! Any advice/comments welcome. Thanks. x
