LifeVac saves another life in the care sector!

LifeVac have been informed once again our device has been put to use to save another life from choking to death.

 

Staff at Lakeveiw Complex Needs Care Home in Manchester put their outstanding training and knowledge to the test when a resident began to choke on food during meal time.

David began to choke during meal time while eating his food, staff recognised David was in difficulty breathing and carried out BLS protocol which failed.

A staff member grabbed LifeVac and used it to dislodge the food from Davids airway saving his life.

"This is great news again, Exemplar Healthcare is our oldest customer. With all the sad news lately in the world regarding the Coronavirus and the shortages with PPE within the care sector, it is nice hearing some good news at last. This is LifeVacs 9th life saved in 4 months when standard BLS has failed or cannot be performed due to underlying conditions such as frailty or disability. A free replacement LifeVac was sent out as standard procedure the same day."

— Matthew Banagan: Sales and Marketing Director LifeVac Europe
