Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place


I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please no advertisers. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

LifeVac Saves Another Life and Has Been Selected to Present at the 2017 American College of Emergency Physicians Research Forum

July 17, 2017

LIFEVAC



SPRINGFIELD GARDENS, N.Y.

LifeVac has registered its sixth confirmed save using the revolutionary new device.  The save occurred in a center for Parkinson's patients in Albacete, Spain. An 80-year-old male patient began to choke on a piece of meat. The attending nurse followed proper European resuscitation protocol without success. The LifeVac device was utilized and removed the object and cleared the airway.

"We are happy to learn that LifeVac has saved another life," said Arthur Lih, Founder and CEO of LifeVac. 
"This case is further example that the current choking protocol is not always successful. If the LifeVac weren't available this would be another unnecessary choking death,"
Lih continued. 
"LifeVac's mission statement is 'Save a life'; we are pleased to have successfully done so again."
LifeVac has been selected to present at the 2017 American College of Emergency Physicians Research Forum. Abstract title: LifeVac-A novel device for the resuscitation of the adolescent choking victim is scheduled for presentation on October 31, 2017 at 11:00am EDT at the conference in Washington, DC. A copy of the presentation will be available on the LifeVac website on November 1, 2017.
About LifeVac LifeVac is a non-powered, single patient, portable suction apparatus designed to save the life of a choking victim.  For information: www.lifevac.net  Save a life!
