Maddie (just turned 2) is having lots of tests finally being done for her chronic/brittle 'asthma'.
We saw the resp specialist last wk and she is being rushed through for tests. She had bloods taken then and there for allergies and immune problems. (we get the results in the next wk or so)
Next week is her sweat test for CF, then the week after she is having an overnight ph test. Apparently this is a tube up her nose, into her lungs which is held there for 24 hrs to test the ph levels in her lungs.
Has anyone any experience of these?
Once in place, is the child able to move around? Whats the tube attached to externally?
Is it easily put in place?
My mind is whirling as its been rushed through so quickly I havent really had time to think about it. I just cant imagine what it will be like!
I want to prepare myself for it and know what I need to do to make it as stress free for Maddie too.
Any thoughts would be a great help,
