Aging, it’s inevitable...
From changes in our bones, reductions in muscle mass and strength, weight gain as our metabolism slows down and a myriad of other things it is important to do as much as possible to fight the aging process. You may be familiar with the standards, move more by walking, running, or biking, insert weight bearing exercises 3X per week, eat foods healthy in vitamins and minerals known to support immune health, bone health and brain health.
But sometimes, no matter if you follow all the right guidance you can be diagnosed with a condition that can cause detrimental effects on your health.
Osteoporosis is called a “silent” disease” because there are typically no symptoms until a bone is broken or one or more vertebrae collapse (fracture). People may not know they have osteoporosis until their bones become so weak that a sudden strain, bump or fall causes a fracture. In fact, there are staggering statistics that over 200 million people worldwide suffer from osteoporosis and the majority of these people are not diagnosed.
In addition to the normal dangers of a spine fracture from undiagnosed osteoporosispeople over 65 years of age have seven times higher risk for choking on food than children aged 1–4 years of age. What is a double edge sword is the risk for a spine fracture for those people who have undiagnosed osteoporosis and then an increased risk for choking due to the natural aging process. With the current suggested practice of the Heimlich Maneuver for removal of an obstruction the risk for a fracture to occur on a natural basis is very high.
Here at Dechoker®, we have developed an airway clearing device that can be used for choking emergencies on anyone 12 months old and up. This device is an excellent design that can help prevent unnecessary spinal fractures.TheDechoker® device uses calculated suction to remove fluid and materials from the airway. It works in seconds and is easy to use on yourself or someone else. Registered as an FDA Class I medical device, and can be used in the home for over 2 years before replacing. There are many examples on theDechoker® saving lives on their website including this story of a man saving his own life withDechoker®
