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.
From past year I have burning around the chest, some times it is exists and some times it is not.
I had done with endoscopy,2decho,ucg, x-ray everything seems normal. Doctor said it's your illusion but still I feel every day some burning on chest especially on the left said, chest to upto left hand.
I don't know what to do now.
