I want to know how much percentage of undamaged or functioning lung can help a person to live his further life . My granny's chest X-ray shows her lungs are damaged approximately 85% as doctor says. So can she be able to live her further life worry free with proper medications and without need of supplement oxygen...? Plz answer bcoz she is ICU now and her SpO2 level is 85-90 with supplement oxygen. One day before she had bipaps for 20hrs ...
Along with COPD, there is a breathing problem. I would like to discuss about the use of BiPAP machines along with oxygen intake for my situation. should I use BiPAP AVAPS(average volume assured pressure support) or should i just go with BiPAP.
Dear Doctor, this is regarding spirometry report of my father.he is a retired surgeon.i somehow got to see his spirometry report highlights of which are below,
Pre Medication Report ~ early small airway obstruction.report shows severe restriction as FVC% 70

With season change, I start facing difficulties in breathing. Although i do take care that i should not intake any cold beverage but despite of that i get caught and start having sleepless nights because of chest wheeziness and loud noise from chest while breathing. This uneasiness creates chest pain too. I am unable to identify the issue as this has started from last year only. Please assist what is all this? And how to cope up with this. Please.
