I had been feeling breathless for about 3 weeks and have COPD and left ventricular failure.
Last monday morning I was worse, and my wife rang for an Ambulance, that arrived within 4 minutes and treated me in my bedroom, carried me downstairs,and continued more treatment in the back of the ambulance.
One driver took us to A@Eand the nurse and doctors took over. I was taken into "Resus" I had various things done to try to get me breathing in a more controlled way.
Later in the day I was transfered to a ward,and later into Coronary Care.I was treated with the utmost respect and consideration by everyone I had contact with.I was very ill and thought I was dying.The reassurance and dignity was excellent.
The food was good and I am used to decent food,and have eaten in many Countries.
