On the 9th of August 2019 we were informed that LifeVac saved another life.
This is LifeVac’s 35th life that we have been informed of and our first life saved in Poland.
Our distributor LifeVac Polska trained an elder care home “Dom Pomocy Społecznej” two weeks ago in Krakowska on the use of LifeVac to safeguard the people that they care for in a choking emergency.
On the 9th of August 2019, LifeVac was once again put to the test only a few weeks after training being delivered when an 81 year old female resident started choking during lunch. The resident was eating her meal accompanied with a bread roll, she came into difficulty when eating her roll and started to choke which became a full airway obstruction. Carers carried out the abdominal thrusts and back blows which failed, she then became unconscious due to lack of oxygen. Her carers then used LifeVac which dislodged the large bread bolus within seconds saving her life.
