Re: Sudden drop in O2 level
Tom, I don't know really, and I haven't gotten the records from my last ER visit/hospital stay, so I still am hazy on what exactly happened, but I do know that my O2 was a little jumpy--it dropped a couple of times.
I was on O2 for about 18 hours, and once I was admitted, they stopped monitoring my levels, but kept me on the O2. I did notice that my symptoms got somewhat worse for the first half hour or so I was in the ER, and I suspect that the stress of having a bunch of people running around me, starting IV, nebulizer, O2, asking questions, etc., exacerbated an already bad attack. Perhaps similar stresses could have exacerbated your attack and caused a drop in your O2 levels?
I'm just guessing. I thought about commenting earlier, but just didn't really know. I may have had a similar experience, but until I get the records, I will not be sure.
