Visit from Lung Clinic Specialist Nurse

D visited Rachael to monitor Rachael's progress with her NIV and her feed. Rachael said that the NIV is invaluable and she is happy with it. She told D that she is still having problems with her feed and is becoming scared that she will starve to death. D assured her that this is unlikely. D will try to arrange a hospital visit to look specifically at Rachael's stomach problems.
D agreed with C's diagnosis that Rachael's bowels are probably blocked and the diarrhoea is actually just leakage from behind the blockage. She advised the continued use of Movicol.
D also brought some new and smaller masks for the NIV.
