First Responder Saves Woman with LifeVac in a Choking Emergency
LifeVac Announces Another Life Saved
It was reported to us that a choking incident took at a New Jersey residence. A 75-year-old female choked on hot dog pasta. A member of a New Jersey-certified community emergency response team heard a choking call come in on a police officer’s radio. As the officer had went into the training centre to check on something.
The CERT member grabbed his LifeVac, jumped into his wife’s car, and rushed to the residence. Upon arriving at the scene officers were doing CPR and were ready to use the AED. He used the LifeVac and suctioned out a substantial amount from the patient’s airway, saving her life.
