Choking is bad, m’kay? It’s probably one of the most horrifying ways to die, so we’re happy that most people are at least somewhat aware of life-saving techniques like the Heimlich manoeuvre. But you know, it doesn’t always work. Or even worse, not everyone knows how to perform it, so a person in distress that could otherwise be saved ends up kicking the bucket needlessly. Well, the Dechoker is a product intended to come into the fray after Heimlich has either failed to work, or failed to be performed for lack of knowledge. It’s basically a vacuum pump that you place over a person’s mouth, while they’re on their back; you pull the plunger and hopefully dislodge your blockage in the process. You then place them on the side until they recover. It’s a brilliant tool to keep in your first aid kit, and definitely worth the astronomical $149.95 asking price.
