i think when im in hospital my brain has too much time to think, there a load of short questions running round my brain, wondered if you guys knew (feel free to add your own questions!)
when they feel your chest, on the left side, in line with the bottom of your sternum for something to do with your heart, what are they feeling for?
what do they look at your hands on chest wards for?
why is humidified oxygen 'more' than the regular stuff?
how do they do a bone density scan?
is bone loss from pred reversible?
is lung pain ever a sign of a chest infection (i have mentioned this - dont worry!)
does wheeziness through a stethoscope sound the same as it does when you can hear your own lungs?
how does pulse oximetry work and why does it sometimes get HR ridiculously high (incorrectly)
has anyone found that pain or suddenly being very stressed improves their breathing (i wondered if it was something to do with adrenaline?)
im sure i'll come up with more, these are just the kinds of things that are nice to know but dont tend to be a priorty when talking to doctors thought you guys probably know as much as most docs anyway!
