Two Homers

Hear Louis B Homer of the Express' south bureau:

Patients had complained about the overcrowding in the asthma room, which should cater only for patients in need of resuscitation.

One patient who was in the asthma room said: "I come here to be resuscitated but instead I am now suffering from suffocation"

Definitions of resuscitate on the Web:

So, is it an asthma room or a resuscitation room? Methinks Homer meant the patients who need nebulisers; but then again he writes with the intelligence of another Homer.
