More:A medical emergency is the worst possible scenario.
A life-threatening disease is often just a day away, with doctors warning people to stay home.
In this case, the pressure is so high that the patients are literally vomiting.
The two patients in the video are in their 30s and 40s, and they have the most serious form of PCV called pulmonary embolism.
They are both in the ICU and the ICUs have to be shut down.
One of them is vomiting and the other is in shock.
One of them has been in the hospital for almost three months, with only a handful of days between when they went in and when they were discharged.
Both of them have been in intensive care for almost a week.
Both have severe pulmonary emboli.
A medical assistant at the ICUT says he was the first to call for help when he found the two patients, who were in the intensive care unit.
“The first thing I thought was, ‘What are they doing?
They’re vomiting,'” he told Al Jazeera.”
Then I thought about the fact that we’ve just lost two patients who are critically ill and one who’s in critical condition, and I thought, ‘Well, that’s very concerning.'”
Medical assistant says he is the first person to call out to emergency services”What we’re going to do now is treat them, and then we’re just going to wait for the ICUP to come in to us,” he said.
He says it took a while to get a call out.
“We were waiting for a little while, and finally, we got a call from the ICUC saying, ‘We need to call an ambulance because the patient is in critical conditions’,” he said.
“The emergency services did not respond and we waited until then to call paramedics.”
When they got there, the ambulance was there, but the paramedics said they couldn’t help them because they were not trained on this particular condition,” he added.
They did eventually get a medical team on the scene, but he said they were still unable to treat the two.
He said they had to wait until the ambulance arrived.”
It’s a big deal,” he explained.”
They’re in critical state.
They’re in a coma and they’ve just gone into cardiac arrest.
“I’ve never seen anything like this before in my life, and we’re not sure what to do.
It’s a huge tragedy.”
This is not the first time this type of situation has happened in South Africa.
The country has a population of around 40 million people.
A number of patients die every day from PCV.
A study in the journal BMC Medical Care found that the number of people with severe pulmonary valve stenoses in South African hospitals had risen to more than 7,000.
There are more than 100 million patients in South Africans hospitals and the situation has been worsening since the start of the HIV pandemic.
The new study found that there were about 500 new cases of pulmonary embolis a day, and about a third of these were due to severe cases.
There have also been a number of deaths from pulmonary embols since 2000.
In 2013, the government declared a state of emergency in all South African states and territories.
This year, South Africa’s government is planning to add to this emergency list the following six new states and territory: Western Cape, North West Province, Transvaal Province, North Cape Province, Eastern Cape Province and Eastern Cape, in addition to the six previously declared states and the territories of South Africa: West Cape, Western Cape-Natal, North East Province, South West Province and South West.
