LifeVac Europe are pleased to share news of another life saved
It was reported to us that LifeVac was deployed in a care home. The home is situated in the Southeast of England.
An elderly female resident was enjoying their meal, when she quickly came into difficulty. Food had become lodged in her airway. Creating a full airway obstruction.
Staff acted quickly, delivering BLS choking protocol. Unfortunately these attempts were unsuccessful in dislodging the airway obstruction. The resident then became unconscious. Staff members quickly deployed their LifeVac device from their wall mounted kit.
