LifeVac Saves Elderly Man – #225

LifeVac registers its 225th life saved.

The team at LifeVac Europe is extremely proud to share brilliant news, LifeVac has helped save another life in the UK care sector in a choking emergency. An elderly male resident, who is a wheelchair user, was enjoying his food during dinner. He quickly came into difficulty when food became lodged in his airway creating a full airway obstruction.

Nurses acted very quickly delivering BLS choking protocol, which unfortunately failed to dislodge the resident’s airway obstruction. A nurse quickly ran and grabbed their non-invasive airway clearance device, LifeVac, from its wall-mounted box.

Within seconds LifeVac was applied and dislodged the gentleman’s airway obstruction, saving his life.

“Good device, does what it is supposed to do” – Nurse
