Inventor of life saving technique dies

US doctor Henry Heimlich, who invented the manoeuvre used to help victims of choking, has died aged 96.

The Heimlich maneouvre is a method for treating a patient who is choking and is taught on almost every first aid course around. The Event Medicine Company trainers teach this method on the courses that we deliver. Dr Heimlich is most famous for inventing the heimlich maneouvre but this was by no means his only achievement.

We like to think that memory of this inspiring gentleman will continue to live on and help people for decades to come.
