Always gargle your mouth after usage of pump or inhaler gargling removes the drug deposition on tongue and reduces risk of fungal infection.
Candida mouthpaint for a week and oral fluconazole once a week for 4 weeks can help treat fungal infection.
Instead of dry powder inhaler, metered dose inhaler which has the mist instead of powder as the drug is there. Which might reduce the drug deposition in tongue but we can't speculate whether it doesn't.
There is no cure to copd and asthma....more

If you are worried best would be to do an abg for pao2 which is most accurate.
And do cbc for hb
spo2 is not accurate representation of oxygen levels
if you are suffering from copd then 88-92 is ok level
do contact me for further diagnosis and treatment or if you still have some doubts you want to clear.

Chronic respiratory diseases like bronchial asthma, bronchiectasis, copd, sarcoidosis and interstitial lung disease are vulnerable to repeated infections and multiple hospital visits or admission.

The main reasons for the increased susceptibility is altered lung defence, use of steroids in various respiratory conditions and multiple comorbidities like diabetes and coronary disease.

Patients should ideally be vaccinated for pneumococcal and influenza disease routinely.

My father 87 year old have been hospitalized in new jersey usa for 43 days now with interstitial lung disease. Principal problem: pneumonia of left lower lobe due to infectious organism active problems: acute calculus cholecystitis interstitial lung disease (hcc) left bundle branch block acute on chronic respiratory failure with hypoxia (hcc) paroxysmal a-fib (hcc) currently on 4 l oxygen nasal cannula patient currently in steroid prednisone 30 mg and mepron and cefepime iv antibiotics. Recent x-ray shows worsening of lung condition all lobe impacted. Following this website I am giving him beryllium and silicea alongside the hospital’s alopathic treatment. I only go to hospital once in the evening, giving him 5 pallets of beryllium 30c and 3 pallets of silicea 30c one hour apart in the evening. I am not sure if I am giving him right amount. Requesting direction on the appropriate doses (also if any other meds and doses are suggested) for the acute stage of ild, again I am only able to go to the hospital once in the evening so only can give homeopathy medicine once a day.

Dear lybrate-user
sorry to hear this. Pneumothorax is air in the lungs. It is not always critical. Depends on how severe it is. However, you mentioned that your father has been on the ventilator. Whether the situation is critical will also depend on how his reponse to ventilator has been. Speak freely to the consultant treating your father. All the best.
