My mother recently admitted to hospital with congestive heart failure LVEF 20% and got paralyzed on right side due to brain infarct on left side. After getting stable, she was discharged but again admitted after 3 days due to breathlessness. Plumo edema was diagnosed and treatment given for same. She also had Thyroid and diabetic Type 2. Again after staying one week in hospital she was discharged with following treatment:- 1/ Lasix 40mg - 3 times a day. 2/ Adalactone 50mg - 1 a day. 3/ Geminor M1 - 1/2 tab twice a day. 4/ Pan D - twice a day. 5/ Thyronorm 100 - once a day. 6/ Planep - once a day. 7/ Cordonone 200mg - twice a day. 8/ Ceftum 250 - thrice a day 9/ Clarimin 250 - once a day 10/ Darolac - thrice a day 11/ Mucimac 600 - twice a day Apart from above she is nebulised thrice a day with Levolin. I wish to know, is the treatment going on is correct or too much medicines are given? If any other important medicine can be added for early recovery from brain infarct? Can LVEF be improved from 20%? How many more years she can survive with all these ailments?
