Iam currently on day 10 of my latest admission which was triggered by infection. WHile im feeling better im still reliant on oxygen,
today the SHO did an arterial blood gas and came back rather paniky as the results were that cmparitive of someone having a reasonably severe attack. I was happily sitting on the bed with a pf of100 and able to talk in nearly full sentances and on 4l of oxygen. he bleeped the itu on call reg who came up and basically laughed at the poor dr.
Basically what i dont understand is why the bloods showed that ,when i was reasonably ok (he repeated them and they were the same)
any ideas /suggestions, as i really want to home and they seem to be saying now that until they are 'normal' im! staying put
