LifeVac are please to share news of another life saved in a UK care home

As many providers know, LifeVac Europe has worked with and equipped 1000’s of care and nursing home providers across the UK. From small independent providers to the largest care home providers in the UK and Europe. Helping reduce one of the leading causes of accidental death in adults over the age of 65….choking.

It was reported to us from a care home situated in Scotland, that LifeVac was again deployed in a choking emergency. Helping save another life when all else failed.

A 92 year old female, who suffers from Dementia and relies on a wheelchair for daily tasks choked during meal time. The elderly female was enjoying her cheese and onion pasty. A large piece of pasty became lodged, creating a full airway obstruction.

Staff acted quickly and accordingly delivering BLS first aid choking protocol. Unfortunately these techniques were unable to dislodge the patients airway obstruction.  Staff quickly grabbed their LifeVac device and applied it to the resident who was in a sitting position. On the 3rd PLACE – PUSH – PULL, LifeVac dislodged the food bolus saving the elderly females life.

Fast in clearing blockage and effective
