On the 27th of August LifeVac was informed once again of saving another child’s life!
Sue Stokes who is certified in BLS protocol had to put her life saving skills to the test on Friday morning to save her son Nicholas’s life.
Sue who has had to previously put her life saving skills to the test 3 times previously, didn’t expect to have to do this again when her son Nicholas started to choke on peanut butter and bread.
Nicholas was eating his snack when he began to choke, Sue quickly realised her son was in trouble and unable to breath, she carried out the abdominal thrusts which she had done successfully before, but this time they did not work. Sue quickly remembered LifeVac that she had purchased years prior. She laid Nicholas on his side and quickly applied the LifeVac. With one application a large piece of peanut butter and bread roughly 3 inches long was dislodged saving Nicholas’s life.
“It really saved his (Nicholas’s) life this morning!!!!” ~ Sue Stokes~
Matthew Banagan from LifeVac Europe commented “Hearing of another life saved is amazing! This is LifeVac’s 6th child saved, knowing another child has their full life ahead of them thanks to his quick thinking mother and LifeVac is an amazing feeling. All of our lives saved have been when protocol has failed or has not been able to be performed, knowing we have created something that continues to save lives when all else fails is irreplaceable”.
