Monday morning

Angus had a set back. Placed on Bipap to help his breathing and hopefully push some fluid out of the lung. Probably a chest tube placement today, also a CT scan of chest and abdomen. Foley catheter placed.

Jen to Human Translation:
Bipap - Delivers air through the mask to be set at one pressure for inhaling and another for exhaling. If anyone has or knows someone who suffers from Sleep Apnea, this is the mask that is worn over their nose while they sleep.
Chest Tube - Flexible plastic tube that is inserted through the chest wall and into the area surrounding each lung. It is used to remove air, fluid, or pus from the chest cavity.
Foley Catheter - Urinary catheter.
