A Coroner will hear how another Care Home resident apparently choked to death in Wrexham. The news comes after a a second Care Home choking death was reported just 10 miles away the week before.
In both cases an inquest into their deaths will be heard at County Court in Ruthin, North Wales, in the coming months.
Choking is a significant cause of choking death in the elderly.
Despite this Care Homes and other Adult Care settings are expected to delivery existing Choking Basic Life Support (BLS) consisting of Back Blows and Abdominal Thrusts (aka Heimlich Manoeuvre).
Often either one or both of these techniques are either difficult or impossible to do when a person is sitting or lying on the floor.
