Warning of the dangers of choking in the lead up to Christmas, DeChoker appeared on Spanish TV’s equivalent of the This Morning last week.

The segment on Canal Sur’s daytime show also included guidance on First Aid in the event of a choking emergency 

The DeChoker has been widely available in Spain for a number of years, with all size variations on sale in pharmacies and other retailers.

The Madrid Social Care Agency have DeChoker devices in both their care homes and childcare facilities after an earlier trial resulted in the lives of 28 adults and 2 children being saved.

The full segment is several minutes long, and also in Spanish. Choking affects people the world over, it doesn’t matter where you live.
