Hello... I understand your concern.

By what you say this looks like an uncontrolled asthma.

During hospitalization and low oxygen saturation, the drugs used to open up the breathing tubes are liable to cause some arrythmias or heart rate changes.

This is normal...but needs EKG and evaluation please.
