LifeVac has again helped save another life in the UK Care Sector

The team at LifeVac Europe are extremely pleased to share news that LifeVac has helped save another life within HC-One.

A resident who relies on a wheelchair for every day tasks was enjoying their food during dinner. Within seconds food unfortunately became lodged in their airway creating a full airway obstruction.

Nurses acted quickly delivering BLS choking protocol to try and dislodge the obstruction. As the resident was a wheelchair user, limited BLS choking protocol could be performed which sadly failed to dislodged the chewed up food.

A nurse quickly grabbed a LifeVac from their wall mounted kit and applied the airway clearance device, within seconds LifeVac removed the lodged food that was creating the full airway obstruction saving the residents life in the choking emergency.

The resident made a full recovery.

“Easy to use” – Nurse

A free replacement LifeVac device and mask was sent out as standard procedure to replace the homes used LifeVac ACD.
