My husband has COPD and has problems breathing his lips are purplish grey and his face is grey at times and does the blowing out of his mouth and doen't want to admit he has it here what can i do if he refuses to get help here.? I have tried everythng and he says when he does things he is tired fast and has mood swings too . Can this also be from Lack of Oxygen. Please help me with some ansers here .. Thank you
Well, I see that you posted this a few days ago. I hope he's better now. Low O2 levels can cause anxiety, disorientation, tiredness, and mood swings. If he refuses treatment, there's not a whole lot you can do. My husband is refusing treatment for what ever lung condition he has and it's driving me nuts. Guess I'll wait til he loses consciousness and call an ambulance to drag him to the hospital...
Iwant to thank you but I don
t think he thinks he has anything wrong and his moods are getting bad with dizziness. I am trying to hold in but with the stress itis hard here. Thank you for you comments here
Tell him to do these exercises, and gradually the oxygen levels will build up.Come back to report his progress.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
