    Hello this is my first time posting anything here but recently was feeling chest tightness and a possible sinus infection so I went to the Hospital after waiting a hour I was finally put in a room given 3 treatment back to back they then started a IV line after that I was given Seldrudol through Iv line and after that I started gasping for air. The doctor came running and giving out orders button line I ended up on a Ventilator. Reason still unknown. I was wondering if anyone has been put on a Mechanical Ventilator before? I've been Dx with severe asthma for 7 years any input will be nice. Thanks
