Reply To: GBS and still not done?

I did not say that respiratory tests are not relevant. In fact, they are very important. The test which was done twice a day may have been “vital capacity,” which checks whether the amount of air the Pt can move in one breath is decreasing. The blood oxygen test is a continuous monitor, in some units of the hospital, two to four times a day in other units. Is he getting the blood oxygen test regularly since he has been exhibiting these symptoms?

It is important to keep an open mind and look at all possible causes.
