Some new info. about the sleep study issues…. So it has been determined that bipap will be better than oxygen. UNC is not as equipped as Duke is to do the sleep study with the bipap so we are being transferred to Duke. We went yesterday to meet the doctor who specializes in pulmonary and sleep disorders. So far things are well. What we did learn through this evaluation is that Jocelyn has atelectisis(partially collapsed lung)still or again??? He recommended that we do aggressive care for the next two weeks then begin the sleep study with the bipap. This way she will be closer to her norm. So as of now she will go back to Duke on the 26th. Then do the sleep study on the 28th as long as everything goes well.
