Just hope somebody can tell me what to expect next!!
Maddie is on Seretide 200, Montelukast, Anti hists and Ventolin and pred 30mg.
She is having a rough ride at the min. She had a serious attack on Tues. Needed nebs at gp surgery both morning and afternoon. Yet after her 2nd neb, her SATs were still only 84, 92 at best.
She was rushed to hospital where she was given huge dose of steroids. Eventually her SATs raised and she was allowed home again.
My question is what an earth can they do next?????
What is the next step in treatment????
Theyve been reluctant to giver her a home neb to keep as she needs oxygen and most home nebs dont use it. Also due to her age (not quite 2) they say they like to see her each time this happens.
Im exhausted, totally. She vomits in the night through choking, coughing etc. Which ends up[ in us bathing her, changing bedding etc-all in a zombie-like state!!
She pants and wheezes loudly by day.
I took her back to the gp today as we have finished this course of pred now. Her chest isnt wheezing but is FULL of 'sputum'!
Just dont know what to do now! We have a Specialist Respiratory Cons app next week, thankfully!!
