18 days after mommy dies, daddy loss conciusness at the church... another medical emergency in lss than a month

on a typical weekday mass , ganito si daddy sa simbahan ng san juan nepomoceno sa malibay,

this is the fifth time daddy los consciousness at the chrch during mass, always at the 6 o clock mass, during the hot humid tempeatue of the early evening.
we usually take him unconcious to san juan de dios hospital, and upon reaching the emergency room he regained conciosness as if nothing happen.
we had his blod routine chk up and CT scan all are normal
today we used his Lifeline ambulance service it arrived at my fathers house in a fast and safe way, but when he saw the crew and medical team of the ambulance, he said he is ok
Syncope (pronounced /ˈsɪŋkəpi/) is the medical term for fainting, a sudden, usually temporary, loss of consciousness generally caused by insufficient oxygen in the brain either through cerebral hypoxia or through hypotension, but possibly for other reasons. Typical symptoms progress through dizziness, clamminess of the skin, a dimming of vision or brownout, possibly tinnitus, complete loss of vision, weakness of limbs to physical collapse. These symptoms falling short of complete collapse, or a fall down, may be referred to as a syncoptic episode.

Syncope due to hypoxia will normally occur if the air breathed contains less than 16% oxygen at atmospheric pressure. Less than 11% oxygen in the air at this pressure can lead to death by suffocation. However, the amount of oxygen in the air is dependent on the partial pressure of oxygen, meaning that, if a person inhales pressurized gas, e.g., while scuba diving, a breathing gas containing less than 16% oxygen can still contain enough to prevent hypoxia. On the other hand, mountaineers, pilots, and astronauts breathe oxygen-enriched gas because the partial pressure of oxygen in normal air mixture is not enough to prevent hypoxia, since the total pressure is reduced at high altitude. Syncope due to hypoxia can also occur because the lungs are not working properly, because a person is not breathing, because the blood is not circulating, or because the blood's ability to transport oxygen is destroyed or blocked, e.g., by carbon monoxide, which, if present, binds itself to the blood's hemoglobin.
