Hi All, My brother has been admitted to hospital last Friday due to obstipation. On Monday he developed a pneumonia and his.lungs were filled.up.with fluid. Now he is in UTC and doctors are giving treatment for infection. His infections has started to reduce however his cough is at zero now according to doctors and he cannot stay without mask. He was using the cough assist machine while in hopsital and we are afraid that he used the cough machine much more than it was supposed in order to clear the mucus. Could the cough machine might have caused some.damage in muscle as his breathing is very bad. We are very devastated .
