on home oxygen after pneumonia
my 67 year old mother with RA developed pneumonia and positive blood cultures and positive urine culture.her 02 sats on r/a without oxygen are 98-99%.she does have pulmonary fibrosis but has had no changein the last 5 years. she is on orencia for the r/a.she was hospitalized 2 weeks ago and went home on home 02...which she has never been on before.as a nurse in a hospital surgical setting i am not familiar with pts on home 02 and possibly weaning of home 02.the family dr says hopefully we can get her off of it.
it has been 2 weeks her sats on 1.5 ltrs are 95-98% on rest and 87-93% on excertion.without o2 at rest 91-92% and 81-89% on excertion without 02.....the dr ordred her on 3 ltrs at rest and 5 on excertion.i have titrated her down to the above numbers of 1.5ltrs. how long should it take to wean her off????please a little help would be appreciated. thank you
