Multiple conditions: Your cardiologist and neurologist are your main sources of help. There are signs of thromboembolism related to atrial fibrillation. Hopefully there is no signs of cerebral impairment- weakness on one side, forgetfulness, slurred speech etc. U need help from ancillary services- physical/speech therapy, rehab etc we need serious help from the supreme being! god bless u! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No: Pneumothorax is a risk with barotrauma occurring during rapid changes in pressure causing the lung to overexpand. For example if a scuba diver is at depth takes a deep breath and comes up from the high pressure depth to low pressure at surface, the lungs will overexpand. As pressure decreases, volume of air in lungs increase>barotrauma. Living at constant pressure at high altitude is ok. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Get below 7000ft: Descent is essential as well as supplemental o2 when you develop hape. Recovery can take several days, but usually you feel much better within a few hours. ...Read more
Wondering why mountain climbers suffering from altitude sickness often suffer from coughing that yields a frothy fluid?
Pulmonary edema: When we experience extreme pressure changes, the fluid balance in the body can break down. The fluid in the blood moving through the lungs can be sucked into the airway, leading to frothy fluid (usually also pink) when one coughs. It happens when sudden change, not from long-term living at high altitude. ...Read more
Pft shows high dlco and frc, normal volumes, mild obstructive ventilatory defect, increased capillary blood volumes, in context of ctd and cryofibrinogenemia (no asthma or smoking), what can be cause?
Unrelated: Ctd is usually associated with a diffusion problem in the lung but your showed above normal dlco. The study also showed mild airway obstruction which, along with the elevated dlco and FRC may well be from asthma. I am not away of any cryofibrinogenemia link to your lung function findings. See an allergist or pulmonologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Breath rate increase: O2 deprivation will typically cause people to breath faster. Abg measures levels of oxygen, carbon dioxide and blood ph. Faster breathing causes a drop in co2 which then causes the blood to have an increase in ph (towards basic, not acidic). Over time, the body would compensate for this ph change via acid retention by the kidney and although the co2 would remain low, the ph would approach normal. ...Read more
Yes and no: When you're cold, it's normal for BP to rise but not just because it's winter. If you dress comfortably, your BP will remain in it's usual range (which is, hopefully, well controlled). ...Read more
