The next step was to visit my pulmonologist who was required to sign off on the new vent settings. I was scheduled to see my pulmonologist anyway. So on 10/21 we went to my appointment, where we met Laura my RT. Inside an examining room Laura started to setup the LTV 800. One problem, she needed to use the tubing from my LP10, which I was breathing on. While mom and the doctor bagged me, Laura and my day nurse quickly swapped the tubing. Two minutes later, I received my first breaths on the LTV. It was different but I felt I could get used to the machine. We reversed the process and I was back to my familiar LP10.
