Hi, my mum has just had her trache removed after successfully coming off the ventilator with oxygen at 28%. Now she has the trache removed , she was coughing up (which I was catching in tissues as nurses too busy and she is too weak to lift hands) her oxygen this morning is at 60%
I am very worried and scared she will end up bsck in the ventilator , and I feel that the oxygen mask with the humidifier is causing the breathlessness and thd apparent need for more oxygen . Could any one get bsck to me with thoughts? Thank you . I'm here at the hospital and haven't been able to speak with a doctor .
