My husband is 64 years old, has had PD for over 20 years. He has bi-lateral DBS and, unfortunately, has dementia. He had severe aspirated pneumonia last September. There are no other underlying medical conditions - other than shallow breathing due to the PD. He is not on O2 although we do use it occasionally during the day and night. Do you need any further details?

We know less anaesthesia is better but we don't have the research to know the best way to administer in these cases. So tell them less is more.
