Children suffer choking deaths in greater numbers than the average adult – Thankfully, there is a solution – the Dechoker for Children and Toddlers.
Dechoker for Children and Toddlers
Of all age groups, toddlers choke most often due to the small diameter of their windpipe, generally the width of a straw.
Choking is a leading cause of injury and death among children, especially those younger than 4 years of age. The majority of choking-related incidents among children are associated with food, coins and toys. On average, a child will die every 5 days in the United States from choking and over 100,000 visits to the emergency room annually.
To complicate matters even more, abdominal thrusts must be done with caution, especially on young children and toddlers. These are safest when done by someone who has been trained to safely perform them. If done the wrong way, the choking person — especially a toddler or child — could be injured.
Dechoker for Children and Toddlers – The Dechoker
Thankfully, there is a new FDA registered device that anyone can use with very little training – The Dechoker.
Changing the way people respond in a choking emergency, the Dechoker first aid device, can be used to save lives in every community gathering place, first responder kit, restaurant, health care facility, school, day care, business, sports venue, and most importantly, in the home.
The Bottom Line: For toddlers, the floor is their domain. And they tend to explore the world by putting things in their mouth. Additionally, it’s not just nuts, grapes and hot dogs that toddlers choke on. Virtually anything can block the trachea in a toddler, since it’s width is about the diameter of a drinking straw, it’s easy to understand why objects/food can block breathing in a young child.
- Choking is the third leading cause of unintentional death in children under the age of 5.
- The most common cause of choking in young children is food.
- Of the three things that keep us alive – air, water, food – only the lack of air will kill in just minutes.
And in a choking emergency, just a few precious minutes is all that you have.
