LifeVac Europe is overjoyed to announce news of another life saved. A few weeks ago, LifeVac was utilized by the Prairie Du Chien Police Department in Wisconsin when law enforcement officers responded to a choking-related emergency. When arriving on the scene the elderly gentleman was immediately attended to using the Heimlich maneuver. When choking rescue procedures were unable to dislodge the hamburger that caused a total blockage LifeVac was utilized and cleared the victim’s airway.
May 2019 Our agency was thrilled yesterday to get LifeVac’s donated to equip our squad cars with life-saving devices in the case of an obstructed airway. Members of our staff utilize these in their own homes as a safety measure to help in a choking incident.
