My dad, 67 years old was being treated by a cardiologist for being tired more than normally. He had several test with no certain findings. Anyway he was taken to the hospital @ 7am on a Saturday morning for difficulty breathing, feeling faint and fatigue, he was admitted having an EKG and a chest X-ray and a nitroglycerin patch in the emergency room. He explained to the physicians that he felt find as long as he was still but as soon as he began to walk as little as 15-20 ft he felt all of the symtoms mentioned above. After being admitted and being in the bed he felt and looked okay.He was given some other cardiology test. The next day he was seen by the cardiologist that told him that he it was not his heart but he belived he may have been suffering from Sleep Apnea and would be released. I was not with him when the doctor was in the room with him but I came shortly after. When my father told me this, I wnt to talk to the physician myself and he repeated to me three times that it was not his heart and somrthing was definetly going on and that he needed me to bring him in to his office tht Wednesday coming to set him up for a sleep study. My Dad was released @ 2:14pm June 15 and he died @ home @3:00pm 45 minutes after leaving the hospital, 25 mins after arriving home. How can this be?:(
