Day 16 Project 365

T struggled in her sleep breathing on Tuesday Night so I called the out of hours doctors who asked for her to come in. Driving through the snow and ice we arrived at the out of hours surgery and were seen by a dr straight away. The doctor gave her a nebuliser and decided that as she was still struggling and wheezy it was best to send her to hospital so an ambulance was called and we headed off for the ward.
That night a nurse taking her routine observations spotted that she was desaturating over night with her levels falling dangerously low and she was hooked up to a monitor. Throughout the night beeps and buzzes happened and lead to ENT coming around as well as the paediatric team visiting and monitoring her whilst asleep.
It seems that she has a sleep problem – sleep apnoea which explains why she has never slept for longer than 3 hours in a row – luckily it is a self adjusted so she changes position and wakes up when it becomes really bad. She’s now in for a sleep study and they think it likely to remove her tonsils will solve the problem.
