I was in the ER a year ago because I felt like I was suffocating to death, and was hearing crackles in my chest. RSV
according to the nasal aspiration test lab results. (RSV
-a pleasant way to die-you slowly suffocate but don't have any of the nasal sinus throat pain that comes with flu.)
Xrays were negative but oxygenation rate was 85% and they gave me oxygen and an Albuterol nebulizer treatment, discharged home with antibiotics and an inhaler.
