It has been reported to the team here at LifeVac Europe that LifeVac has been used for the first time within TLC Care in their Cambridge Manor Residential Nursing Dementia Care Home.
It seems we are sharing every week now that LifeVac is used to help dislodge an obstruction in a choking emergency whether that be a full or partial obstruction. Soft obstructions such as yogurt, porridge, coleslaw, phlegm to hard solid obstructions such as meat, hard boiled sweets, grapes and so much more! When the casualty has been sitting, standing and laying down, all when BLS has failed or cannot be performed.
A resident was enjoying their dinner, but came into difficulties and began to choke which became a partial obstruction.
BLS was carried out by the quick thinking staff/nurses which unfortunately failed to dislodge any of the obstruction. Staff quickly used LifeVac to dislodge the food bolus.
