Advice please - I have an asthmatic student who has labored breathing, was wheezing but no longer, dizzy, fatigued. BUT sating at 98-99% RA. He's used his flovent and proair several times so HR was high but is currently down to 120s.
Yesterday he was same, but also pale and tripoding, mom picked up and took to hospital for RT and steroids. He's been in my office today, symptomatic, for an hour and mom can't come to p/u for another hour.
As long as he's sating ok, is it ok to keep him here, or at what point do I call an ambulance?
Of note: he is a bit of a "flopper," so I have to put a lot of weight on my assessment of good/improved vitals, decreased wheezing after TX.
