LifeVac saves another life in the UK care sector

LifeVac saves life within Hallmark Care Homes

The team at LifeVac Europe are incredibly pleased to share wonderful news that LifeVac has saved another life in the UK care sector.

It has been reported to us that LifeVac was used within Hallmark Care Homes to help save a life in a choking emergency.

An elderly resident was receiving her medication when one of the items became logged in her way creating a full airway obstruction.

Hallmark Care Home employees acted quickly delivering what BLS choking protocol could be administered, as abdominal thrusts could not be performed due to underlying conditions. Sadly, back blows were not able dislodge the full airway obstruction. A nurse quickly retrieved their LifeVac from their wall mounted kit and within seconds dislodged the medication and the resident started breathing again.

“We are extremely pleased that one of our invaluable nurses was able to use LifeVac to save the life of one of our residents. LifeVac is an amazing, lifesaving technology and we feel that it is essential to support our team members with such crucial lifesaving equipment.”

— Spokesperson for Hallmark Care Homes

“I’m immensely proud that LifeVac has helped save another life within the care sector and are enormously proud of the team members within Hallmark Care Homes.
