My daughter. 19 yrs old. Healthy. Frontline worker at a huge grocery store chain. Started feeling sick about two weeks ago. Side and back pain. Nausea.. Chest pain. Primary doc sent her for chest x-ray.. Something "lit up" on right side. Sent for MRI. Cat scan. Ultra sound of back and abdomen areas..NOTHING.. While at work was unable to breathe. Chest pain. Rushed to e.r. quarantined. Tested for covid. Young. By herself because no one can be with her. Turns out its pleurisy.. An inflection of the outside of the lining of the lungs. They basically tell her.. It's because she has been wearing a mask for over 8 hours a day 5-6 days a week. Breathing in her own bacteria. Carbon dioxide.. Caused an infection. And now she is in severe pain. Has to be off work with no pay.. But you wont see that on social media! She's 19. Healthy. And now is bed bound and struggling to breathe. Antibiotics. Steroids. Breathing treatments.
Neill Payne Extended mask wearing will cause bradypnea or decreased breathing. That has these problems associated with it.
Blood oxygenation occurs mainly during respiration, so when our breathing decreases so does our level of blood oxygenation. This may lead to the following conditions:
Hypoxemia: The condition in which there is an insufficiency in the delivery of oxygen in the blood.
Hypercapnia: The condition in which there is an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the blood.
Respiratory acidosis: A state characterized by a disproportionate level of the acid-base balance causes alveolar hypoventilation.
These conditions can lead to increased episodes of fainting spells and heart problems. A compromised respiratory system associated with bradypnea can be life threatening and potentially cause damage to other organs and tissues. In most severe cases of bradypnea, sudden death or cardiac arrest may occur."
