The obstruction of respiratory tract by a foreign body, in other words choking, is one of the main causes of accidental deaths. In fact, it is the 3rd cause of unnatural death in Spain, preceding even car accidents.
We are concerned about this problem here, at our pharmacy, especially when it comes to vulnerable groups i.e. elderly people and children. Hence, we have tired to come up with an idea of how to improve your safety and we have found one. It is a life-saving device which is able to unblock the respiratory tract quickly and efficiently.
In this video, Lara Benito explains to us how it works and why it is indispensable to have it in our First-aid kit, especially taking into consideration that emergency services take a lot of time to reach us in the sea and thanks to this device we can save someone’s life.
