LifeVac Registers 151st Life Saved in UK Care Home
LifeVac registers its 151st life saved. LifeVac Europe is very pleased to share more amazing news, LifeVac has been used once again within the UK care sector to help save a resident’s life in a choking emergency.
On this occasion, it was the first deployment within Porthaven Care Homes, which just recently deployed LifeVac across all of their care homes after receiving virtual and CPD e-learning training.
An elderly resident who relies on an electric wheelchair was enjoying their dinner when they came into difficulty and began choking on a large piece of pork, which became a full airway obstruction.
Nurses quickly administered BLS Choking protocol which unfortunately failed to dislodge the FBAO (foreign-body airway obstruction).
A team member quickly grabbed LifeVac from their wall-mounted case and within seconds LifeVac dislodged the large piece of chewed-up pork.
The resident began to breathe again and regained consciousness, making a full recovery.
“Very effective and saved patients life”
