You never know what kind of dangers you will have to face in life so it is best to be prepared. One life-saving tip that everyone should know is the Heimlich maneuver.
One scary danger that could arise in daily life is choking. The Heimlich maneuver was named after Dr. Henry Heimlich who first described it in 1974.
The Heimlich maneuver involves the rescuer standing behind the choker and using their hands to push up and in on the diaphragm. This will hopefully expel whatever is trapped in the trachea.
But what should you do if you are choking and there is no one around to help? One solution is to use the back of a chair like in the image below.
But what if this fails to work? Jeff Rehman, a firefighter and paramedic, believes he has come up with a potential solution.
“I have noted over the years that there is really no effective means for someone to rescue themselves should they be choking and nobody is there to help them,” says Rehman.
