Choking…1 Child Every 5 days..

One child chokes to death every 5 days in the US. Basic emergency medical training should be taught in schools.

Was sent to me by a contact on Linked. Not sure where the data comes from but with the ability to learn a simple and effective maneuver, the Heimlich, very easy to teach and to learn, these could be prevented.

I have taught hundreds, if not thousands, BLS/CPR which includes dealing with choking victims..

Now where is the outrage over this?

So ends my public service announcement for the week..
