MHRA APPROVAL TAKES DECHOKER TO CARE SHOW 2017

Dechoker UK are pleased to announce that after receiving guidance approval from the MHRA they are showcasing their new DECHOKER product at this year’s Care Show 2017.

Providers will undoubtedly be aware that choking is an inherent danger within the care sector, and the speed in which tragedy can occur. When a person is choking, the lack of oxygen is likely to cause brain damage within 8 minutes and death is probable after 10 just minutes.

The DECHOKER is a manually operated device which can be used to remove the obstruction causing the choking emergency, and is specifically designed to be simple and easy to use with minimal instruction.

Measuring less than 30cm in length it is also practical to locate wherever there is a risk of a person choking.

Used in conjunction with existing first aid procedures, DECHOKER employs the familiar respiratory mask to cover the mouth, and a sealed cylinder to create a vacuum which draws the blockage from the airway allowing breathing to return to normal.
