My husband 29 years old was involved w/a serious motorvehicle accident on April 16th 2006 2 weeks before his accident he had xrays for phonomia his heart was normal size at that time, no fluid buildup no prior heart problems.
During his hospital his veins were all bad so during his stay they gave him IV intravaniously (had a xray and they put it in internal.
He fractured his skull and fractured his left hip.
12 inch laceration across his arm/surgery on it.
He was released from hospital april 31
June 8th he went back into the hospital for breathing problems they diagnosed him with congestive heart failure & cardiomypthy his ejection fracture is 15%
Since then he has been steadily getting worst.
I have been told when there is a headon collision w/seat belt and airbag as he the airbag did hit his chest that it can cause Blunt Chest trauma however The dr doesnt think that this was due to the automobile accident cause he had no bruising in his chest at the time of his accident.
He has problems breathing throughout the day and night/Sleepless nights the doctor says no wheezing.
For the past month he has been throwing up daily up to 5-9 times a day.
Even releasing all of his drinks.
The doctor says he thinks that he is dehydrating and took him off his water pills. Now his breathing seems to be getting worst followed with chest pain, and heart fluttering.
My questions is,
Is it possible that the accident w/seatbelt/airbag could of caused this?
Is it possible that something with his medicine is causing his breathing to worsten?
The following medicines he is on is:
Furosemide -Generic Lasix
Enalapril -Generic Vasotec 2.5 mg (one tablet twice daily)
Klor-Con (4 tablets by mouth daily)
Singulair 10 Mg (take 1 pill by mouth daily)
Spironolact 25mg (take 1 pill by mouth daily)
Buspirone Generic Buspar (15 mg 1 by mouth 2 x daily)
Lyrica 150mg (take 1 tablet twice daily)
