Fatigue studies (CFS?): Merit of mitochondrial tests e.g. ATP-ATP, ANT/AAC, Mg-ATP, mito. O2 util., Zn/Cu-SOD, Mn-SOD, GSHPx? Any viable treatments?

Fatigue studies (CFS?): Merit of mitochondrial tests e.g. ATP-ATP, ANT/AAC, Mg-ATP, mito. O2 util., Zn/Cu-SOD, Mn-SOD, GSHPx? Any viable treatments?

No proven Rx: CFS remains a puzzling problem and there is no specific test to pinpoint the cause. I have a feeling that your tests were ordered by someone not in traditional medicine . There are many ways people with CFS may obtain relief but supplements (if that doctor wants to sell you some ) are not likely to offer proven benefits. . ...Read more

How long shd it take a 6yo to recover from gtube surgery? 2hrs anesthesia, gt/teeth extract/circ. How long for increased o2 requirement/ fatigue/pain?

How long shd it take a 6yo to recover from gtube surgery? 2hrs anesthesia, gt/teeth extract/circ. How long for increased o2 requirement/ fatigue/pain?

It Depends...: Recovery and the need for supplemental o2 following general endotracheal anesthesia for a dental extraction and circumcision (an unusual combination) varies widely. In a healthy 6 year old, the need for subsequent oxygen depends upon how "sleepy" he/she is upon emerging from anesthesia, the actual length (2 hours implies o2 for less than an hour) and general medical condition. ...Read more

Cough (dry/little wet) w/pain. Fatigue. 94 O2. 152/96 BP. Shaking. No fever. Short of breath & 100 pulse/rest. Asthmatic. Albuterol every 30min. ER?

Cough (dry/little wet) w/pain. Fatigue. 94 O2. 152/96 BP. Shaking. No fever. Short of breath & 100 pulse/rest. Asthmatic. Albuterol every 30min. ER?

Yes: Call 911 and go to hospital. You are requiring your albuterol too often at home. You need to be assessed to see if you need blood work, XRs, an IV and different meds to make you better. Generally anyone requiring their albuterol medication more often than every 4 hours needs to be assessed. All the best. ...Read more

Is sleep apnea caused by not getting enough oxygen through my nose or is the problem sourced in my neck? I have chronic nasal congestion.

Is sleep apnea caused by not getting enough oxygen through my nose or is the problem sourced in my neck? I have chronic nasal congestion.

Not your nose: People with complete nasal blockade will simply begin to breathe through their mouth while asleep. This is not sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is closure of the airway due to obstruction of tissue in the back of the throat (posterior pharynx) and it requires surgery or continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) to open it. ...Read more

What should my oxygen rate be with CHF and how low can it get before it causes problems?

What should my oxygen rate be with CHF and how low can it get before it causes problems?

Above 90%: When someone with heart failure is stable their oxygen saturation as measured on a pulse oximetry (usually on their fingertip) should be greater than 90%. Lower than that may indicate retention of fluid in the lungs and necessitate a visit to the ER or the cardiologist to adjust medications and re-assess. ...Read more

Oxygen level showing at 81%, but I have no problem?

Oxygen level showing at 81%, but I have no problem?

Your finger is: probably cold or not getting enough blood flow, which then affects your PO2 measurement. If you are tracking your pulse oximetry, you should also see a sine wave indicative of your pulse pressure along with the O2 readout. If you do not, or do not have a machine capable of such reading, I would not trust your result. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

What problems have to occur in order to get an oxygen tank? I'm severely asthmatic... I was wondering if oxygen could help with my breathing issues?

See your doc: With current available treatments there would rarely be any need for a 16 yo to have oxygen on hand.If they lived at a distance from medical services and attacks come on abruptly, it might be an option. Proper self monitoring with a peak flow meter and a good asthma action plan for condition changes can reduce attacks. ...Read more

What is fainting? Are certain brain cells not getting enough glucose? Is it a problem of not enough oxygen, or something else?

What is fainting? Are certain brain cells not getting enough glucose? Is it a problem of not enough oxygen, or something else?

Low blood supply: Fainting is a brief, sudden loss of consciousness due to low blood supply to the brain. The medical term is syncope. The most common cause is slowing of heart rate and lower blood pressure associated with pain, excitement, or emotions - vasovagal syncope. Generally low blood pressure from drugs or dehyrdation are also common. Heart problems are rare causes. Low sugar very uncommon. ...Read more
