First post nails it again

I think I remember seeing a news story not too long ago about him using the maneuver for the first time on someone recently.

He did. He perfected the technique by practicing on dogs. He would shove meat down their throats. He was also a major bull shitter. I believe he claimed to have a cure for HIV.

He was physician in US Navy during WWII in the China Theatre. He developed a chest tube that saved many wounded US soldiers in Vietnam.

This leaves a lump in my windpipe.


Official cause of death : Asphyxiation

I feel sad for the family, but it's nothing I'm going to get choked up over.

His death leaves me breathe-less

I'm feeling blue about this.

I actually used this to save someone's life.

My nephew was choking on a piece of hotdog and a cousin used it to send the hotdog chunk flying across the room. Years ago my little brother was choking on a piece of hard candy. My dad just used his own maneuver. He picked my brother up by his ankles holding him upside down and shaking him til it came out.

When I was about 11 or 12 years old I used the Heimlich maneuver to save my Grandma's life when she started choking at dinner. The piece of steak that got lodged in her throat flew across the room. Good times.

Thanks Dr Heimlich. Your name was funny as hell, but I know of at least one life you saved.

"Hilda!  Hilda!  Wake up Hilda!  I have invented a maneuver!" 

"What are you, a bloody tank commander now?"

Three times. Twice on Privates that had tried to eat too quickly, and once on my five-year old.

Apparently Privates are indeed like children.

I'm a beneficiary of the Heimlich maneuver. My grandfather had to perform it on me when I was a kid and I choked on a piece of an orange. My airway was completely blocked. RIP Dr. Heimlich.
