I have a family member who is currently in ICU. Last Sunday, she was placed on a ventilator and removed from the vent a couple of days later. Currently, she has been decreased from 60L of high flow oxygen to 40L (they are trying to wean her from the high flow oxygen). While resting, she is tolerating the weaning process well. Her O2 saturation remains in the high 90s to 100 and her blood gases are improving and from my understanding, acceptable. However, if she is turned or physically moved up in the bed, etc., her numbers (mainly her O2 saturation) bottoms out and it takes her anywhere from 30 minutes to as long as an hour to recover and get her numbers back up. The doctors and nurses are telling us that they do not know why this is happening. To me, that is very concerning. Could you offer any insight as to why this is happening? She has been diagnosed with COPD (related to smoking) and was not on any oxygen therapy prior to being admitted into the hospital. They did state that her lungs have suffered extensive damage and when I asked how extensive, they could not tell me because she was unable to perform a PF test. She had an upper respiratory infection, which led to her going to the ER initially.

I recently took stress and breathing test. Heart is in great shape...but doctor said I could be at very beginning stages of COPD (or it could be culmination of asthma, allergies, etc. I am 63 and quite smoking 30 years ago...so it may not be out of the realm that early COPD is possible. I have had asthma my entire life...but for most part have stayed very active. These days I don t really exercise much. I was provided a sample of stiolto respimat (SR) from my doctor today and am about to take it for 1st time. I also take Singulair and ProAir for events as they may occur. My pharmacist indicated that I should space minimum 30 mins apart from taking SR and Singulair. Since you are a doctor have you had good experience with SR? I must admit I am a little hesitant to take the SR.
