Hey guys, since my dad's copd has dramatically worsened in the past month I've found myself trying learn, recognise and associated any symptoms he shows in order to prevent any flare ups.
After being let with no option and against my dad's wishes I rung an ambulance, his face lips and fingers was a dark mauve. I thought Id lost him. Paramedics came his temperature was 41'c o2 level was 54 and his heart Rate was 149bpm. He then went into resus and put on a nippy mask.
They told us last night that he is very ill and to more or less expect the worse. Tgey are aggressively treating him for pneumonia with antibiotics he's on the nippy mask all last night and today and 1lt of oxygen. This morning he looked alot better but as the day has got on he's looking ill again
I didn't realise how quickly things can Deteriorate. I hope he's got the strength to over come this x
