yes I have a question about my mother is in ICU on a ventilator. We were just told that her lungs collapsed after a suction session because her machine kept going off. They than put her on a paralytic med along with a sedative. They are saying that her lug sounds are very faint. I think that this could also be because of those meds. I do not think that this meds are the meds that they should be using please tell me what you think

I have a rare genetic disease called BHD Syndrome. I had a collapsed lung last jan. 2014 with chest tube inserted, 4 blebs removed and stapled along with pluerodesis surgery. Yesterday I started experiencing pain whenever I inhale or talk. I had hard time sleeping because chest hurts. Am I experiencing a pneumothorax? How do I know when to go to hospital.

I had a heat attack 6 months ago. My tropnin level is 26.8 microns/L is this high. I have an infarct as well. I also have COPD. After angioplasty my kidneys worsened and my gfr went from 58 to 48. Which is quite serious, as I had a reaction to dye. Is the damage permanent to kidneys and how large is infarct if troponin level is 26.8 microns/L.
