Her pulmonary problems lead to low oxygen levels, that sustained over time can effect the brain & lead to altered cognition, mimicking conditions such as Alzheimer's. The pulmonary problem can also effect brain blood vessels leading to increased risk of small vessel dementia. Neurologist involvement is important

That being said this is a discussion for your and your doctor.
