“This Anti-Choking Device Could Have Prevented My Son's Death” — E.R. Nurse Shares Heart-Wrenching Story​

“Choking is the 4th leading cause of accidental death worldwide…and it happens to people of all ages!”

Ten years ago, I lost my son Jace to a sudden, preventable accident.

It’s hard to talk about, but I feel like I have to. Because I believe my story can help you avoid this same tragedy.

By the end of this article, you will know EXACTLY how to respond to a choking incident, whether it’s at home, the office, school, or a nursing home. Reading it may help you save a life — including your own.

First, my story. It was Christmas dinner, and suddenly my son Jace started choking.

I’m an E.R. nurse, so I sprung into action. I started with back blows — but it didn’t work.

So I switched to abdominal thrusts, just like I’m trained to do… but I had trouble getting leverage and wasn’t making progress.

As Jace turned blue, my husband started performing back blows… but nothing happened.

Then he tried abdominal thrusts again while I called an ambulance…

But there was nothing we could do.
