LifeVac Saves Woman in Long-Term Care Home – #298

LifeVac announces our 298th life saved.

We are so pleased to announce an elderly female patient was saved at a long-term care home in Ontario, Canada!
On February 3rd the elderly lady was eating pieces of ham and experienced a blockage. Staff quickly did chest compressions and finger sweeps but the blockage was still present. LifeVac was then used to successfully clear the blocked airway!
