LifeVac saves elderly woman from choking – #201
LifeVac Registers 201st Life Saved!
LifeVac is proud
to announce its 201st life saved. It has been reported by our LifeVac Europe partners that LifeVac has helped save another life within the adult care sector.
It has been reported to us that LifeVac was used within a Hallmark care home to help save a life in a choking emergency.
An elderly female resident was taking her daily medication when she came into difficulty. A tablet became lodged in her airway creating a partial airway obstruction.
Hallmark care home employees acted quickly delivering BLS choking protocol. Unfortunately, encouraging the resident to cough and back blows were not able to dislodge the partial airway obstruction. A nurse quickly retrieved their LifeVac device from their wall-mounted kit and in seconds dislodged the lodged tablet and the resident made a full recovery.
“The device is very useful/helpful.” – nurse
