LifeVac Registers 155th Life Saved
LifeVac announces its 155th life saved!
The choking experts at LifeVac Europe are extremely proud to share the fantastic news that LifeVac has been used again within the UK care sector.
It has been reported to us that LifeVac was deployed within Dovehaven Care Homes when a resident choked on bacon.
Like thousands of other care providers across the UK, Dovenhaven delivered a group roll out LifeVac across all of their care homes to raise the standards of care and safeguard the wonderful people they care for in a choking emergency.
A resident was enjoying their meal when bacon become lodged in their airway, which became a full airway obstruction.
Nurses and carer’s quickly carried out BLS choking protocol in an attempt to dislodge the bacon, sadly BLS choking protocol failed to dislodge the obstruction. Staff then quickly grabbed the LifeVac from their wall-mounted box and within seconds LifeVac removed the bacon saving the resident’s life.
