I’ve heard good things bout trilogy
What are your ABG's ? If your CO2 is at 51 or higher, the Trilogy 100 (or equivalent) VENT- is better than a CPAP to remove the CO2. I have high PCO2 54 (nor 35-45) – High PO2 142 (norm 75-100) – High CO3 33 (normal 22-26). My lungs are clear but oxygen stays low. I use the Trilogy 100 when sleeping, took me off the CPAP three months ago. I have Afib even after two ablations and two cardioversions. I have a Watchman in my heart to prevent blood clots / strokes from Afib. I have no heart blockage. I do have some pulmonary hypertension, never smoked. In my late 70's. I have specialists at UAB Birmingham, AL . We are all confused about what I should be doing differently. I am a nurse but don't understand my complicated symptoms. This is my first post here.
If it works don’t mess with it
