4-Year-Old Boy Saved with LifeVac in a Choking Emergency

LifeVac announces another life saved

We received news that a 4-year-old boy with a rare form of epilepsy choked on a whole hush puppy. The child’s mother performed BLS first aid choking rescue protocol but was unsuccessful in dislodging the obstruction. She quickly got the LifeVac, laid him down, and was able to successfully dislodge the obstruction saving his life.

The hushpuppy was dislodged the 2nd time, it was able to remove it from his airway and mouth. EMS was called to check him to make sure they didn’t hear any obstructions still left in the throat. He was cleared and started back breathing normally.” I saw it on Facebook being used on a small child that was choking and knew I needed it for our son with his issues and lack of chewing.
