My Dad is 86 and gasps for his breath in his sleep. The Dr. sent out an overnight monitor for him to use one night -- it is a thing that goes on his finger and measures his oxygen level, and records it in a black box, all night long --- 2 days later they have an oxygen machine delivered to Dad's house and tell him to sleep with a small tube at the base of his nose and set the oxygen machine at 2.
No mask, no in hospital test -- does this make sense? (And obviously poor communication from the Dr., he is busy and hasn't returned any calls!)
This is all new to me.
