The family lives in the same home and Henry attends the same school. His resultant absences from school are starting to have an effect on his academic performance. Both parents work full-time. They are very concerned about Henry?s condition, this is the first time he required oxygen when he came to the Emergency Department. They ask the RN if there is anything they can do so this does not occur again.;The RN performs a health history. Henry and his parents report he has been getting progressively more short of breath, tires easily, and had a harsh cough for the past week. He was brought to the Emergency Department because he was having so much trouble breathing that his lips were turning blue.
