Myrna's Breathing at 8 Sunday Afternoon After Extra Lasix; More Lasix Monday Given; Video Available
Myrna received about 3 mg more of lasix about 11:30 a.m. Sunday because her breathing was at 10 at rest. By 1 it was down to 8. That's 8 breathing beats per 15 seconds or 32 breathing rate in a minute. So it finally came down from 48 Saturday night to 40 Sunday morning, to 32 Sunday afternoon.
It has remained steady since. She is to receive 3mg more of lasix twice a day all this week to make sure the congestion won't return.
