How to Do the Heimlich Maneuver

by Michael




With the holidays fast approaching I thought it would be a good idea to share this with you all. Choking because of an obstructed airway is a leading cause of accidental death. If a choking person is not coughing or is unable to speak, that's your cue to perform the Heimlich maneuver immediately. Here are a few steps to help save a choking victim. After watching the informative video I suggest familiarizing yourself more with this life saving technique by googling any additional information you might need.

I think that should be renamed "How To Not Do The Heimlich Maneuver" That was funny Michael! Thanks for sharing that with us...I think!!! Lol!

Good Morning Shirley. You are right with the title. I thought this was going to be a Red Cross lesson instead we got a comic skit. It was however very funny Michael. Thanks for sharing.

Today I make the buns for our Christmas Eve family party at our house and for Christmas dinner. Jack is going to play gopher again.

Yesterday my granddaughter did most of the wrapping so I am pretty well ready for Christmas.

Just three more sleeps.

Funny vid MICHAEL..silly..but funny! That Chopper guy looks like my neighbor..I have a feeling he'd do the Heimlich Maneuver the exact same way! ;D

SHIRLEY: Congrats on First! Your Splat! was a perfect 10 today!

TINKA: I bet Jack is gonna love helping you with your buns! :D

Randy and I are just about done shopping..I think. We've been going out every day..walking for hours..dang..My knee has dictated that we stay home today..yay! :D

SHIRLEY: Omg..that pic yesterday! I was just thinking..if MO had that 'ornament' on her car..she would never ever get in the wrong car again..could be a solution..ya think? ;D

Zona said...

Happy Hanukkah MO! Swak!!! ♥

Zona said...

TINKA: Only 3 more sleeps? Yikes!

Have a good day everyone!

Good Morning Owls.....How is everyone today?

Funny video, Michael. I was feeling for the guy choking. At least we all now how to take care of someone during the holidays if the situation comes up.

Morning, Shirley. You are lovely today but I am ready for your sun avatar to come back or a smiling Santa. I waited for you last night to do our ice sculptures on cars but no one showed up!!!!

TINK: I know I will smell your buns all the way to Colorado and I mean that in a good way. :) My granddaughters wrapped for me too...thank goodness.

ZONA: Get some rest today so you can be back out at it tomorrow. You know you never get any rest when Randy is on vacation.

it works either way....

I was going to go an actual thing on the Heimlich. It just seemed like a good idea to refresh memories on this procedure...but in my search for the best video I found this one and....well...this one won...lol

I haven't been in the mood for the holiday but I did get sucked into going to this protestant mall here and it was awful. The crowds were impossible. I use a service entrance to enter and exit the mall that is walled off from the parking lot to avoid those damn bell ringers and those crowds coming and going....but that is the extent of my sanity retention "bag o tricks"...

We were exiting Dillards and they were demo-ing a coffee maker and offering shoppers coffee or hot cider. I didn't want either but the woman would not shut up so I took the hot cider.....

I saw this "seasonal" kiosk that was selling all kinds of dip.....so I watch and listen for a few minutes.....it sounds really good so I pick some and get in line with the holiday shoppers.....I'm standing there and this little BITCH comes up and starts talking to the girl in front of me and just kind of eases her amazingly tightly clad ass in front of me!!!! She did turn and look at me and said...and said..."I'm with her"......"I'm not breaking in line".......
I said in the nicest way..."I know ur not! Now get your ass to the back of the line before I go ape shit christmas crazy on you!"

She said "my friend was saving my place!" I said "darling...you have no idea what I am capable of..if you don't get away from me I am going to throw this hot cider in your face and you are going to be wearing that Auntie Anne Pretzel in your nose!"

And they have all those kiosks in the mall....this one guy tried to sell me a machine for $100 that he said would make water into diet coke....I nipped that pitch in the bud when I asked him if he was in this country legally...

Then my friend that dragged me out there started sniffing around a kiosk where they sell designer fragrances at a discount...I told her all those bottle are filled with urine...I told her thats why there were no testers...cause then you would smell the piss!

Then just inside Macys in the cosmetics dept they has this demo going on...all these women were gathered around watching this "home dermabrasion" kit being used on this volunteer. This "Beauty Expert" was holding this battery operated device on this ladies face and it was whirring and screeched using these micro-brasion beads to remove this ladies top layer of skin evidently. The woman having it done appeared to be in some degree of pain and the lady doing it looked like her Mother had fed her with a sling shot....so as the guinea pigs skin got continuously redder I asked the demonstrator if she uses one of these systems and she said oh yes! Well alrightie then! Finally the guinea pigs face started smoking and she screamed and ran and stuck her face in the water fountain to cool it off I guess...

Then we went upstairs and as I was passing the mens sorry excuse for a shoe dept this gorgeous man was standing there with a shoe in his hand looking very frustrated. And believe it or not he asked ME if I worked there!! I said yessir how may I be of service? He wanted to try on the shoes like the one he was holding in a size 14!!! OMG!! I escorted him to a seat and told him I needed to measure his foot first so I told him to go ahead and pull his pants leg up to the knee and when I saw his calf I told him to go ahead and pull the other pants leg up too!! OMG HE HAD THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CALVES!! MARRY CHRISTMAS TO ME!! I could barely hold them as I wrapped my hands around each of them and began to massage them assuring him that this would help us get a more accurate measurement of his foot...after a few moments of massage he said..."You don't really work here do you?"
I said..."No...but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night!!"

Shirley Nice splatting today! You look perky and pretty today. If the Heimlich Maneuver is ever needed, I would recommend using the traditional one.

Just_Lin said...

Michael Well, thanks for the vid but I didn't care for that character too much.

At least you didn't go to the mall on the weekend. It's much worse then. I avoid it at all costs, even when it's not the holiday season. Hey, you got to feel up a guy's calves. That should have redeemed the whole experience.

Just_Lin said...

Tinka You and your famous buns! When you're hot, you're hot!

Just_Lin said...

Zona If Mo had that ornament on her car, she'd leave a lot of acciddents in her wake. LOL

Just_Lin said...

I meant to use the more traditional spelling of accident. LOL

Tina~in_ut said...

Sitting in dentist chair......waiting for crown.......jealous, Michael? :D

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Tina if you are waiting for a crown shouldn't you be on the throne?

Tina~in_ut said...

Lmbo Shirley~ I'm on the throne NOW!!!!!!!

Michael said...

I thought you meant a diadem!!

Maureen said...

Well, that was educational!

TINA...I think you should have had a tiara instead of a crown...way too ostentatious!

ZONA...I'd surely find my car...in the impound lot with a fine for indecency! Some people just don't have a sense of humor! Oh,, and thank you! I didn't want to make latkes, so I ate potato chips...does that count?

Maureen said...

JUST LIN...thankfully we aren't graded on our spelling!!

Maureen said...

I thought you meant a diadem!!

I read that as:

I thought you meant a diaphram!!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Splat!!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Yo! Ho! Ho! And a bottle of rum!! Where is everyone?

I made a rhyme! Hmmm! I'm a poet and didn't know it!

Ha! Another rhyme! I'm on a roll!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Doesn't anybody like me any more?

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

HELLO!!!!!!!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Ok this isn't funny! I'm getting angry now!!
HELLO PEOPLE!!!!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

**stamps feet loudly and shouts**

I demand you come in here and talk with me!!!! NOW!!!!!!!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

FINE!!!! I'm not going to speak to any of you either!!!

**stomps off and slams door**

Michael said...

Hi Shirley....I wonder why we don't have a fresh blog.

Something is wrong.
