LifeVac Registers 116th Life Saved
LifeVac helps save 3rd life within Sunrise Senior Living in a choking emergency
We are very pleased to announce that LifeVac has been used again within the UK Adult Care Sector to help save another life in a choking emergency. A nurse had to put his training into action when an elderly resident began to choke on her porridge during mealtime. BLS choking protocol was administered to dislodge the food stuck in her airway. Sadly, these procedures failed to dislodge the obstruction.
After a call out, another nurse came running into the room with their LifeVac wall-mounted kit. Within seconds LifeVac was deployed and dislodged the food lodged in the resident’s airway.
Matthew Banagan, Sales & Marketing Director – LifeVac Europe commented: “This is great news to hear, LifeVac has helped saved another life in a choking emergency and bringing peace of mind to the nurses within Sunrise Senior Living. I’m very proud of the amazing partnerships we have made within the Adult Care Sector and how we support our clients from the start with implementation, training, compliance and risk assessments, to the end result – helping save a life.”
