LifeVac saves another life in the UK care sector within Hallmark Care Homes
The team at LifeVac Europe is incredibly pleased to share the wonderful news that LifeVac has saved another life in the UK care sector.
It has been reported to us that LifeVac was used within Hallmark Care Homes to help save a life in a choking emergency.
An elderly resident was receiving her medication when one of the items became logged in her way creating a full airway obstruction.
Hallmark Care Home employees acted quickly delivering what BLS choking protocol could be administered, as abdominal thrusts could not be performed due to underlying conditions. Sadly, back blows were not able to dislodge the full airway obstruction. A nurse quickly retrieved their LifeVac from their wall-mounted kit and within seconds dislodged the medication and the resident started breathing again.
