Breathing issue, low O2

My father got admitted to hospital a week ago with a very low oxygen saturation level of 85. Partial pressure of O2 was also very low and that of CO2 was very high. After a week of NIV support in ICU, it gradually improved to 90s and CO2 came down and O2 pp reached 60. Shifted to ward with NIV, but in 2-3 hours oxygen saturation went down to 81 and they took him to ICU again. Bowel not cleared for the whole week. He's unable to and while values improve by deep breathing, he can't do that beyond a minute. What's happening and what to do? Has to be in ICU for more time?
