I friend of mine's FB status said that she was thankful for having an allergist that will work her son in after he needed 2 breathing treatments in 24 hours. Danny has had up to 15 in 24 hours for several days straight and on individual really bad days he has had 17 or 18. Am I just numb to the need for these or is 2 treatments in one day not a big deal?
I think if I had to go to the dr for breathing treatments that would be more of a hassle and a bigger deal because I would have to pack the kids up to go. Doing them at home is more convenient. I know I make a big deal about going to the dr for heartbeat checks and some ladies check them at home everyday. So for them its no big deal but for me I have to do more to get them. I hope that makes sense.
Unless I am miss reading the post and you mean she did 2 at home and then went to the dr. Then yeah that seems odd unless that is her dr's orders or the breathing treatments weren't working.
She did 2 at home and since she had to do more than 1 in 24 hours she got nervous I guess. If you don't mind me asking, do you have a heart condition that requires you to check your HR? I have Supra-Ventricular Tachycardia and regular tachy and have to check mine whenever I feel off and take measures to correct whichever one may be acting up. Have you looked into getting an automatic BP cuff that also checks HR or do have to check rhythm and not just HR?
That is strange.. Maybe it's a different kind of medication.. Some are given every 2-3 hours and some given twice a day.
When A.J had his last asthma attack albuterol did not help at all.. He was given Duoneb in the doctors office which help calm it down for that time until he was put on prelone.. From my research, it's not recommended for 18 years old and under so they won't send me home with any.. Maybe it was a similar situation?
