hi anybody know anything about levels of carbon dioxide ?
managed to set my kitchen alight on sunday got out of the back door,3 engines 2 ambulances and 1 rapid response in attendance .Had smoke inhaltion, lovey when yout fev1 is 23 and you have asthma paramedics said carbon dioxide level was nearly 4 so was taken to hospital .
On arrival nurse did usual tests then said carbo dioxide level still high so said i would have to stay in but she would have to do my blood gases first so off she goes 5or 6 seconds later a doctor pulled the curtain back and said you can go home.so never had bloods done
This pleased me and i wasnt going to argue who wants to be in hospital .My duaghter wasnt very happy ,i had a banging headache sore throat and coughing also the nurse said my blood pressur was up ..
My daughter got the impression because it was on my notes i had copd so iwas wheezy anyway !!
Any way it was a very scary situation to be in but iam here to tell the tale part of the kitchen gutted and smoke damage but all that can be replaced ,my insurance company came the next day
thank you for readin g this
