Thank you for your question.

With the information that you have provided you MUST be seen in the ER to be evaluated further to rule out various possibilities like heart disease or lung disease.

Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Severe congestion and drop in oxygen rate suggest likely lung infection or bacterial pneumonia.

Severe pneumonia can also slow down your heart rate.

You will need IV antibiotics immediately.

Please call 911 as they will provide you with advanced life support --oxygen therapy, heart monitoring while transferring you to the nearest hospital for further evaluation.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.

Let me know if you have more questions.
