Hello. I woke up last night, because I wasn t breathing. This has happened to me a few times in the last couple months, but it was never a big deal i just went back to sleep and every thing was ok. This time I woke up and it felt like I wasn t getting enough oxygen, I was kind of hyperventilating my heart was beating very fast and my whole body was shaking! I went to the emergency room and they took my ekg and a chest x-ray but everything was normal. I felt like that for about 4 hours, And then today in the middle of the day I got that feeling again 3 times. I am so freaked out. Especially because the doctors don t know what it could be. I keep telling my self that I am ok and it might be in my head, but I was busy and my mind was somewhere completely else and it started happening. Can somebody tell me what that could be, or how to make breathing easier when it happenes again???

Can a human head live without a body if we use a machine to keep the blood flowing and oxygenated ? I mean all the head needs is oxygen and blood with nutrients to the brain right? The eyeballs and mouth and nose and ears should still work. So if the head was severed the person could still be alive headwise and see his body and talk back ...etc... Does anybody know of some head that was alive in a lab or something? Let s say someone has heart failure and sure to die.... we chop the head off so that he/she can still talk, think and be alive. Isn t this true? what do you think? The nerve endings die? really i didn t know that. So what feeds the nerves when it is still attached to the body keeping them alive? Can t we feed the nerves the same way before and after cutting the body away. They are able to feed regular cells grown in a lab so why can t they feed nerve cells? I believe in the body cells feed each other, otherwise how will they stay alive? So can t we grow a bunch of the cells that feed nerve cells and use them to feed after removing the head?

My daughter was diagnosed with transient tachypnea 6 days ago after birth. Another x ray today revealed no improvement with reduction of fluid on lungs and a drop in saturated oxygen was observed. Doctors have put her back on oxygen and told me another week to clear. This seems a very long time for TTN to be a problem.....? What else could be issue?

My niece has been hospitalized since yesterday because she was throwing up blood and she got 2 blood transfussions yesterday and one today.
