-Crackly chest but mucous is loosened and usually coughed out after CPT
-Clear Runny nose
-Sneezing. sneezing and more sneezing
-Suctioning during awake hours 5-10 mins (normal for us is every 15-20)
-Suctioning at rest every 10 mins (normal is once or twice)
-Secretions are slimy, and white
-Causing HME's to be soaked in about 4-6 hours
-Chest xrays are streaky but pnuemonia was ruled out twice
No fever, no labored breathing.. David is in a happy trouble making mood
We have been on Biaxin for 6 days and not much has improved other than the amount we are suctioning during the day. Went back to dr today and sent trach secretions and nasal flangale (Spelling?) to check for viruses...
We probably wont get much for answers til cultures come back next week or til we go to city to see our Respirologist and RT on Friday..
Anyone have any ideas???
Rhinovirus was one that was being thrown around..
