Elderly Man Saved with LifeVac – #307
LifeVac registers its 307th life saved.
On March 13th we received news that an elderly man choked on a bean and cheese burrito. The owner of the LifeVac saved the gentleman who is a family friend.
“I am a NICU RN and used to dealing with emergency situations but am always in the hospital setting where tools are available, and I have a backup. I am still shaken up about it. I attempted back blows and the Helmich but was unsuccessful. I grabbed the LifeVac and cleared his airway on the first attempt. He is alive and well.”
This is the 14th life saved by a good Samaritan. We are thankful LifeVac was gifted by her co-worker.
