78-year-old experiencing breathing difficulties

We received a call from a AAA Response member in June who sounded panicked. After calming the member down, she advised me that her 78-year-old husband was experiencing breathing difficulties. We immediately dispatched Netcare 911 to the members home address to assist further. The Netcare 911 team takes extra precaution when breathing difficulties are reported

We received a call from a AAA Response member in June who sounded panicked. After calming the member down, she advised me that her 78-year-old husband was experiencing breathing difficulties. We immediately dispatched Netcare 911 to the members home address to assist further. The Netcare 911 team takes extra precaution when breathing difficulties are reported as this is a serious condition, more so during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Netcare 911 Advanced Life Support Paramedics were on scene within a short period, stabilised the patient, and then transported him to the nearest hospital for further attention. He was admitted and received the required medical attention.

Sadly, we received the news recently that he had unfortunately passed away, but our member thanked Together SA CAN/AAA Response services for the support received. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family in this difficult time. We have offered additional support to her over the coming weeks.
