My younger daughter has a serious allergy to yellow food coloring and my mother in law, not thinking that the coloring would be in packaged chicken noodle soup gave her some. She had a laryngeal spasm and could not breathe. I was driving her to the hospital and the ambulance me on the road. I will never forget the terrified look in her eyes.You only have to respond a few times to incidents of breathing difficulties....the 4 year old completely choking on a hot dog slice with seconds to reverse it...the asthmatic teen completely hunched over not able to take a breath in...the victim asphixiating on his own vomit...to dread the calls of "I can't breathe". You recognize "I can't breathe" statements can go south so very quickly and you immediately have to help. Not a second is invaluable. That is always a scary statement to hear.
