Dr. Henry Heimlich

Recommended Posts


Dr. Henry Heimlich, known for the lifesaving anti-choking procedure the Heimlich Maneuver, has died at age 96. Condolences. 

Heimlich first published his theory on how to stop people choking in a June 1974 article for Emergency Medicine. He helped save many lives just by his invention.  Rest in peace.

He also developed a chest drainage ...something. He knew what he wanted to do and developed this by starting going through toys in shops, looking for the mechanical idea.

He also worked in China during WW2, making sure supplies coming-up from the Persian Gulf were getting to Maoist forces as agreed and not being siphoned off by the Soviets.
