If anyone is able to answer this I'd be grateful - my sister has just called me from where dad is in respite. She's just arrived and found him with the nurses, he's on the toilet with the nebuliser on, and they think he's having a panic attack. His breathing has been awful for the last week, he had an infection (UIT) that wasn't picked up (despite me pestering them to check) until two days ago and is now on antibiotics. He chokes when he eats (a new thing since his breathing worsened) and his pulse and breathing are constantly very fast. Surely, he needs to go to hospital for assessment? I feel the nurses are a bit too laid back and not familiar enough with PSP (the neuro nurse has had to call them to remind them how to check for infection). Am I over reacting? Feeling panicky, I'm not there, just getting my sister's messages. Is there anything that could be done in hospital that can't be done by nurses?
