National Heimlich Maneuver Day June 1

NATIONAL HEIMLICH MANEUVER DAY

Each year on June 1, National Heimlich Maneuver Day is observed. Using abdominal thrusts to force air from the lungs to expel an object on which someone is choking is called the Heimlich Maneuver.  Dr. Henry J. Heimlich created this life-saving procedure in 1974.  The Heimlich Maneuver is also referred to as “Abdominal Thrusts”.

Certified instructors teach the Heimlich Procedure, and these courses are available across the country. Today would be a good day to research the available training in your area.  According to the American Red Cross “choking causes over 3,000 deaths per year.” Having the proper training and knowledge may help to save someone’s life.
