Protocol – Dechoker and choking Basic Life Support
In the event of a suspected severe/complete Foreign Body Airway Obstruction (FBAO) or choking incident, immediate choking Basic Life Support should be delivered.
Treatment consisting of repeated cycles of Back Blows and Abdominal Thrusts is set out in a protocol or algorithm. We are often asked when do you use a Dechoker in a choking emergency.
The Protocol for Use use shown here provides simple guidance and instruction on exactly when to use a Dechoker ACD in a choking emergency.
We invite enquiries from the clinical, healthcare, resuscitation and other professional sectors to reach out to us if you have a non-commercial enquiry.
The Dechoker ACD – Airway Clearance Device – has been developed for use in a choking emergency when existing Basic Life Support techniques have failed.
When a person’s airway is obstructed and they cannot breathe – either with food or another object – then time is absolutely critical. The hand-held Dechoker creates directed suction over the airway and is designed to remove food, liquid or other obstructions.
We replace any Dechoker used in a choking emergency – for FREE
