Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Treatment for intestitial lung disease taken.
Now the main complaint is fever (cough & cold down) and dysponea ( shortness of breath
) even due to mile exertion.
Cuase of dysponea may .
1 Acute severe asthma
, previously it was known as status astmaticus .
Diagnosis can be confirmed by various biochemical parameters . In biochemical terms initially there is no change in blood gases & there is hyper ventilation of alveoli. As if pulse rate is >120 / minute with respiration >30 / minute i.e. stage 2 . So for this consult a pulmonologist
and get his opinion and treatment .
2 Anemia is the another cause of such grim situation . Diagnosis can be confirmed by hemoglobin
3 Acute respiratory failure
as all symptoms mentioned in the query is an indication of respiratory failure so without delay admit him into ER and take treatment .
In my opinion in all above mentioned condition admission of patient is important .
Good luck. Dr. HET
