For the last 2 wks since I got out of hospital my son who is just 6 as had an attack most nights between 11pm and 2am ..now I have doubled his brown inhaler and taken him to the GP who as told me his chest is clear ..his oxygen drops to as low as 88 for a minute or two while i am giving him his sabutmol .... Last night it took 8 puffs before he was ok and then he fell straight back to sleep
My friend thinks I should take him to a&e or ring an ambulance so he can be seen at his worst and maybe they will be able to help him , I know that a&e tend to nebulise and send home ..I wouldnt wanna call and ambulance unless i really had to i always worry that i am taking it from somebody that needs its
He as been refered to a paediatrician that is a specialist in respiratory care and the GP thinks he will do a sleep study so they can hopfully see when this is happening ..
OK..Sorry for my off on a tangent thread with no really meaning ...But I am at a loss I hate seeing my little boy suffer and dont know what to do for the best ..should i be ringing an ambulance if its taking me 8 puffs to sort him out ? or should i be waiting till i see the pead ? ..I think he could do with a short course of predisolne again but as his chest is clear during the day the dr cant give him anything ..I dont sleep for fear of not hearing him which isnt doing my chest any good but thats nothing compared to seeing my little boy suffer all the time x
