PAP and follicular bronchiolitis

By Kimberly Brunner posted 05-06-2019 18:24

I work in pulmonary rehab and have a pt. with PAP and follicular bronchiolitis. My pt. is on 5 liters of pulsed dosed oxygen, sats are normally 96-97%.  My question is she feels sob with her diagnosis but her sats don't present that she needs that much o2.  Is she wearable or because of her diagnosis needs it no matter what the sats are?  I have been trying to google about her diseases but not getting very far.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Background on her...43 y/p, never smoked, African American, has not had the lavage done but is hoping to.

thanks! Kim
