Choking and the Dechoker – Online Course of the Week

Choking and the Dechoker course will give you the essential information when dealing with someone choking. Abdominal thrusts have helped save many lives, but it’s not the easiest method when responding to someone choking. There are a number of fatal complications following the performance of abdominal thrusts.

You might not be big or strong enough to perform thrusts on the person choking. The other alternative, performing a Tracheotomy, is something very few would be able to do. The revolutionary new medical device, Dechoker is a very sensible answer to this problem. Time is of the essence when trying to help someone choking, and it’s very distressing to all involved.
