Hajime has more and more secretions daily.
It is impossible to suction all of it out by just the ventilator.
For that reason, the hospital got him a Cough Assist.
In truth, Hajime hates this machine.
Why? Because his lungs hurt when he sucks air in.
I think it would be different if he gets used to it.
What’s different about this machine is that ventilators can pump oxygen in, but it won’t suck air out.
But this Cough Assist can pump air in and out, so it is able to suck secretions out.
It helps in preventing things such as pneumonia.
Pneumonia is something that we really have to avoid getting….
