My husband has severe bulous emphysema. Spent 29 days ventilated in iTu in Jan, been improving but over the past 3 weeks has developed severe panic attacks, he goes waxy, says drop to 80ish. Just come out of hospital, they prescribed lorazepam for panic attacks, he's on lots of sedatives.
Tonight he says he wakes up unable to breath and panics, this is the first time he's said this.
He had iv antibiotics this week for chest infection and is now on tablets , has just started to cough any sputum up but it is blood stained which is new!
