Seniors, have you ever had to perform the Heimlich Maneuver on anyone?

Once on my three year old daughter who had gotten a large glob of melted mozzarella cheese from some lasagna stuck in her throat. She's now 25 and to this day calls it "choke cheese". Another time I had to perform it in the cafeteria of the hospital I was working at...a man at another table was choking on a piece of breaded chicken cutlet. The irony of that is...I'm just a medical transcriptionist, and the man was sitting at a table with several nurses...who all just sat there.

Have you ever had a near death experience?

2. Grape went down the wrong pipe/ completely blocked it off, heimlich maneuver saved the day.
