It’s mostly dry. But I do bring up some clear white phlegm at times.

No chest pain but there is wheezing especially when I exert myself. And yes I’ve been feeling more tired than usual.

I appreciate you sharing all of that patricia. Based on your symptoms in the initial examination, it seems you may be dealing with an exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD. I recommend further evaluation and hospitalization for closer monitoring, and appropriate treatment. I understand it might be concerning, but it’s essential for your well-being. Do you have any concerns or questions?

Patient

Admitting to the hospital, I was hoping to give some medication and go back home. I don’t like staying in hospitals.

I understand Patricia being in the hospital can be challenging, but it’s crucial for managing COPD effectively. Let me explain why the hospital decision is necessary and address any concerns you may have.

Patient

Well I prefer being at home. Hospitals make me uneasy.

I understand your concerns patricia. COPD can be a serious condition and in some cases, hospitalization is the best course of action to manage it effectively. May I ask what specifically concerns you about staying in the hospital?

Patient

Well, I prefer the comfort of my home, and I’m worried about the hassle of being in the hospital.

I completely understand your feelings. Being in the hospital may seem inconvenient, but it’s crucial for your well-being. COPD can be unpredictable and being in the hospital allows us to closely monitor your condition, provide timely interventions and ensure your comfort. It also allows us to administer treatments more efficiently than if you were at home.

Patient

I’m just scared of being away from home and all the medical stuff.

I empathize with your feelings. It’s entirely normal to feel uneasy about being away from home. Given your current health situation, untreated COPD can lead to severe attacks. Managing such issues at home might be challenging especially if you encounter significant difficulties.
