Woman with Parkinson’s Chokes and is Saved with LifeVac in a Choking Emergency
LifeVac registers another life saved
It was reported to us that a 74-year-old female with Parkinson’s, and several medical issues choked on a peanut butter sandwich causing a full airway obstruction. Staff at the Montana facility followed BLS first aid choking protocol but was unsuccessful. The patient then became unconscious. LifeVac was used multiple times and successfully dislodged the sandwich saving the woman’s life. We are so thankful the facility chooses to add LifeVac as part of their first aid equipment.
