Help when you need it most
Caring for people in their own home presents it’s own unique challenges when managing the risk of choking.
Additional consideration needs to be made – not only to the risks to the person being cared for but also the person providing the care.
Can you do two things at once?
Care is often provided by someone working alone which incurs further risk when faced with a choking emergency. Carers can face the difficulties of managing an elderly person or an adult with additional needs single-handed in a choking emergency, which means they do not have the additional support needed to move someone who is in a sitting position.
In contrast to a dedicated care setting, a carer may not have colleagues on hand to call EMS or to assist with BLS Choking Protocol.
This is likely to present an increased risk that should a choking emergency occur, the outcome will not be a successful one.
The implementation of a LifeVac ACD within the individual’s own home ensures it is immediately accessible by a carer in a event of choking emergency.
