Spouse with Alzheimer's passing out
My hubby, who has Alzheimers has “passed out” 3 times in the last year. The latest incident was three days ago. Has anyone else had this experience? If so, have you gotten any input on what it is and how to handle it? Would appreciate some guidance. Here is the situation:
Sitting outside eating lunch. My hubby had a beer… temps in the low 70s. We were sitting talking to our cousins who were visiting. Conversation was flowing but all of a sudden he just went blank. Did not respond to anything. Eyes open but non-responsive. His head went down, started snoring and sweating. Tried to get him up from the chair to lay him down and get his legs up but he was dead weight. Could not move him. Having experienced this before I thought he would come out of it. It lasted longer than I was comfortable with. Called 911. They arrived within 10 minutes. Got vitals… all were fine. He finally came out of it and responded when the EMT called his name. He also urinated in his shorts. The EMTs got him up and into bed. He slept for about 2 hours and then was fine to go out to dinner where he was totally alert and engaging. No meds change and he sees his cardiologist regularly and no issues there. He is not on blood pressure meds which sometimes can cause this.
