Hi there ...
Thank you for the question ...
As he is ill for last 2 weeks and recent gasping for air with spitting sputum is highly suggestive of respiratory tract infection .
Possibility of Pneumonia should be ruled out .
I will suggest you to get his Chest X ray as early as possible and get prescription medication for him .
As involvement of airways can deteriorate his issues and breathing can be compromised .
So better to visit ER .
Regards ***** ***** luck .
Please rate my answer as good service .
Are you there ..
