You didn't mention your father's age and whether he is smoker or not.
If he is a smoker,it has to stopped immediately.
If the lungs are infected,there will be decreased space for normal breathing. CO2 levels may increase.
So,the infection has to be controlled fully with Broad spectrum antibiotics.
Please consult Pulmonologist/General physician and get him treated.
Wish him good health
