Hoping our resident respiratory experts can answer this for me. Yesterday I unexpectedly went under anesthesia-- if I'd known in advance I would have brought my own bipap. When I woke up I requested bipap due to difficulty taking deep breaths after sedation. They set up a hospital bipap but completely ignored my assertions of my home settings, including the fact that though I told them I don't have O2 at home on my bipap, they insisted on 50% oxygen. I feel like Ive read on the forums that oxygen is NOT advised for PALS and could be problematic? Is what they did inadvisable in future?
