It’s with great pleasure the team at LifeVac Europe share news that LifeVac has again helped save another life in the Adult Care Sector.
LifeVac was used again to help save a life in a choking emergency, this time in Ireland. We have been asked not to name the care provider this time as not to attract any media/unwanted attention, which we fully respect.
A 74 year old male resident was eating his dinner when food became lodged in his airway, staff acted quickly delivering BLS choking protocol which could not dislodge the partial airway obstruction. The carers then deployed LifeVac which they had only purchased the same week. With one application LifeVac removed the FBAO (Foreign Body Airway Obstruction). The male resident was given an examination due to receiving BLS choking protocol by their local GP and was given the “all clear”.
Matthew Banagan from LifeVac Europe commented: ” We are very pleased to be informed LifeVac has been used again to help save a life when all else failed. It has been said before, but we are receiving weekly/daily news now that LifeVac has been used in a choking emergency. This isn’t surprising given that their are now thousands of LifeVac devices deployed across the UK care sector from small independent care homes to the largest leading care providers in the UK such as HC-One, Priory Group, FSHC, Barchester Healthcare, Runwood Homes, Leonard Cheshire Disability and many many more. We are proud of the reputation we have obtained within the healthcare sector and the impact we are making on peoples lives”.
We welcome Independence Matters to the LifeVac family who join over 4700 other care/nursing homes and providers across the UK, who have deployed LifeVac across all of their establishments. Independence Matters have deployed LifeVac across all of their sites to help support the people they care for in a choking emergency.
