Choking Help When Alone – if you can make any sound, try to cough or hack it up, if not, first dial 911, then, if you have prepared for this event, reach for the Dechoker.
Choking Help When Alone
Nestled behind Poisoning (which includes overdoses), Motor Vehicle Accidents, and Falls, Choking causes more deaths than fires, drowning or accidental gunshots., as the 4th leading cause of accidental death in the U.S.
- Poisoning (including drug overdose): 64,795, +11.1%
- Motor vehicle: 40,231, -0.2%
- Falls: 36,338, +4.8%
- Choking (Suffocation by ingestion): 5,216, +8%
- Drowning: 3,709, -2%
- Fires, flames, smoke: 2,812, +3%
And in the media, we see the news reports about house fires. Or the drowning in a pool. These make the news. However, when was the last time you saw a news report about an accidental choking?
Like hardly ever, yet most often, the local news starts with a house fire.
Also in the media, for instance movies, you’ll see a patron in a posh restaurant suddenly grab their throat.
That rarely, if ever, happens. Usually, just like fire deaths, chocking deaths occur in the home, many times while alone.
