Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Venous and arterial blood gases, oximetry, lungs x rays, spirometry are some of the ways to assess the failure and distress.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
