Man Chokes on Piece of Sausage and is Saved with LifeVac in a Choking Emergency

LifeVac are delighted to share news of another life saved in an Oklahoma Mental Health Facility

It was reported to us that a 59-year-old male began choking on a piece of sausage during dinner time. The piece of meat caused a complete airway obstruction while the patient was supine. Members of staff attempted back blows but were unsuccessful in dislodging the meat. LifeVac was deployed and removed the airway obstruction. We are so thankful this facility decided to add LifeVac as part of their first aid equipment after discussions in their first aid renewal class.

We ordered LifeVac last year and put one on each of our units, in the patient dining room, and on each emergency cart. We have a total of 12 in our building
