Caregiver notes: Check flow of air out of the nose and chest movement. Check if client is still making regular noise when sleeping.  Ensure oxygen lines are clear with no kinks. In one last long breath, the person with no oxygen and weak cells from over medication and progressing cancer cells can have a heart attack at the time that they just started their usual long sleep. One body is weak than the other one, one droopy eyes and limpy arms and legs with pinpoint eye pupil. When you try to wake the person up or even ask a question and she/he cannot answer, call 911 since you do not have the AED machine and other means to resuscitate the patient. Apply CPR on chest (with person lying flat on the floor) while waiting for the paramedics.
