Looking on my release paper work, it has moderate persistent Asthma with exacerbation, below that, it says Acute respiratory failure with hypoxia.







I already have a Pulmonary doctor I see about twice a year, he diagnosed me with 'genetic asthma a couple years ago. I take 2 inhalers, Trelogy, and Albuterol (resuce inhaler), normally the albuterol inhaler works pretty good, but that night, it was having NO effect at all, the nurse said when your lungs are coated in Phlegm, the inhaler medicine has a hard time reaching the area its needs to be.


They were mainly trying to 'loosen me up', and get rid of some of the phlegm, Ive been spitting more up thru out today and taking mucinex as they instructed, it seems to be working, but I think some of this is due to the Prednisone and Levofloxacin antibiotics, (helping to kill the infection, that is causing the phlegm to build up).


I didnt mention this strange sound to the EMT or doctors/nurses at any time though, I think they would have probably just told me it was brought on by panic.

I had a stress test a few months ago and everything was good, except for a left dilated ventricle, (which Im not sure is serious or not, my own doctor says its not that serious as long as blood pressure is under control, but other people have said its serious...I did mention it to the ER doc, the nurse and EMTs, none of them acted like it was significant.


I thought I did mention the EMTs gave me oxygen as soon as they got to my house, (but maybe I forgot to add that), they had me on oxygen for most of the time at the hospital, they did slowly taper it off thru out the visit, and by the time I was discharged, I was breathing fine with no oxygen.

Yes...This is the first thing that came to mind, they are trying to shut me down, so I dont find them and post pictures all over the internet of them! LOL

I've heard that noise before when having a panic attack. I think one's blood oxygen levels being out of whack can seriously distort perception. Never attributed anything supernatural to it - I wasn't actually in danger of dying at the time, just felt like I was.

Left-sided heart failure is related to pulmonary congestion. The left side of the heart receives oxygen-rich blood from the lungs. When the left side is not pumping correctly, blood backs up in the blood vessels of the lungs — pulmonary edema. As blood backs up in the lungs, pressure in the veins of the lungs increases. Fluids within the lungs are pushed into breathing spaces, interrupting the normal flow of oxygen.

Related symptoms include:

Shortness of breath: Shortness of breath often becomes a problem during physical activity, but also can happen during rest. Difficulty breathing may occur suddenly at night, but may subside by moving around. Extra pillows to prop up your upper body can help you breathe more easily in bed.
Persistent cough: A seemingly unexplained cough produces pink phlegm containing blood.
Pulmonary crackles: Popping sounds occur when air is forced through lung passages narrowed by fluid build-up.
Third heart sound: The normal heartbeat has two sounds made as the heart contracts (pumps blood) and expands (fills with blood). With heart failure, a third sound becomes apparent: The walls of the heart's ventricles vibrate when blood fills the heart.
Reduced urine output: With heart failure, the kidneys cannot function properly. Sodium remains in the body, causing water retention.
Low oxygen saturation levels: This results from the heart's inability to receive oxygen-rich blood from the lungs.
Altered digestion.
Dizziness, lightheadedness and confusion.
Restlessness and anxiety.
Fatigue and weakness.

I did take note of the color of Phlegm I was bringing up thru out this whole experience, thankfully, it was a dull greenish /yellow (no pink or red).


I didnt experience any dizziness, confusion or lightheadedness, I was restless and anxious, but for obvious reasons, I didnt really feel any weakness either, digestion was OK, I did eat a normal dinner earlier on that night, no gas, or heartburn, indigestion, etc.

I dont know if I was truly was in danger of dying... It most definitely felt like it, I could not catch my breath, I was VERY close to passing out, (although, Im not sure what would have happened if I had passed out...whether that would have killed me or not).

Maybe anxiety related to the breathing problems triggered a panic attack ... you get into a feedback loop during a panic attack where physical symptoms feed into the fear which increases the physical symptoms until you end up with a full-blown attack.

Something similar has happened to me from time to time, the sensation of air buffeting around my ears and head. No loud noise, but feels like flapping wings or heli blades, with a soft sound like you said.

I have never gotten it checked out specifically but a doctor did mention to me during a physical that it could be a blood pressure thing combined with dehydration.

Its possible, I knew this breathing attack was serious and I was in danger of passing out, I already have an extreme fear of death...knowing its about to happen...I could very much see this setting off a panic attack.

Op; Because you felt better after you had oxygen, call your doc and tell him to write an order for a portable emergency oxygen tank to be delivered to you to have around you to buy you more time, for the next time it happens, and to also relieve your anxiety, until the medics arrive. Also, I would follow up on possible remedies for your left ventricle.
