Re: I was sent home from ER and developed ARDS at home
I honestly don't understand hospitals sometimes. I was told their goal is to treat you and get you out. They told me they are not there to diagnose what the problem is but to rule out life threatening things. This past year I have been taken to the Er by ambulance because my oxgen levels dropped. Since it was back to 100% once I was there with oxygen and the xray did not show a blood clot I was sent back home. I kept telling them it drops as I walk and that is when I got the answer above from them.
Several years a go I went to the ER for chest pains and was sent home. Since my EKG was fine they felt I was. I got home and it got increasing worse so I went to another ER and they kept me for two days. I had a cardiac cauth done too. Its things like sending people home when they shouldn't be that scares me. I am sure you lost your trust too afte your incident.
How are you feeling now?
