She is using oxygen only at bedtime at the present time. I’m just not sure about putting her through this change at her age. We just recently switched to a different heart doctor and I just don’t know if this is just extra money for the doctor or if my mom really needs this at this time?
She was diagnosed with COPD about 20 years ago and has stopped/quit smoking 10 years ago. She does suffer from CHF/A-Fib, and has occasional swelling in feet and legs, takes a diuretic for that when needed. The Doctor said she has a strong heart but does have mitro valve prolapse. She also has a pacemaker.
Does anyone of y’all’s parents use CPAP at this age of life? Mom has limited mobility issues. I’m just uncertain if she really needs this or not? Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you & God Bless
