Last week, while shopping with his mother at a Detroit grocery store, 2 year old Ayyan Umar, who was sitting in the shopping cart, managed to grab some grapes while his mother was looking at some cheese. His mother had no idea that Ayyan was eating grapes.

Then she heard him choking. She dropped the cheese and began slapping his back, but nothing was coming out. Another customer started CPR. 911 was called and they showed up in 5-7 minutes.

He was already gone. 

After Ayyan died, the hospital removed the grape blocking his trachea.

Words cannot express how saddened we are about this sudden loss of a young life.

But it could have been avoided.

The simple fact is that while back slaps and abdominal thrusts are valuable tools, they don’t always work and one must be highly trained, especially with toddlers. And CPR, while valuable, is even less effective in removing a blockage of the trachea (which in a toddler is about the width of a straw).

And the reality is this happens far too often. Here in the US, someone dies from choking every 2 hours.

But there is an FDA Registered Anti-Choking Medical Device made specifically for toddlers aged 1-3.

And if the grocery store had a Dechoker in their first-aid kit, or his mom had one, even in the car parked right outside, this tragedy would have very likely been avoided.

More people die from choking than die in fires, non-fire related carbon monoxide poisoning, drowning or accidental shootings.

There is a better way.

The Dechoker device quickly applies negative pressure to the airway to suck out whatever debris or fluid that is blocking their breathing.

You simply place the face mask over the mouth of the choking person and pull quickly on the tab in the back. The vacuum the Dechoker motivates the lodged item to move toward the device. It can be used by small people on large ones, large people on small or frail ones, or even by struggling choking victim on themselves.

The best part is there is no way for anyone to accidently push the debris farther down, because it employs a one-way valve.

And it’s easy and simple to use with no certification classes to attend.
