Su / First-aid

Su
Su

When fainting the human body slackens and falls to the ground. When this happens, the tongue slackens too and can get stuck in the throat. This blocks the air supply of the lungs and the affected will suffocate.

Su is consists of a rubber bellows and a plastic tip. With the Su functionality I put a proven system to new use. The compression of the bellows creates a vacuum which sucks the tongue to the plastic tip. Afterwards the tongue can be pulled out easily and safely. When the affected persons breathing is back to normal he can be moved into a stable side position. If the person is not breathing the helper can begin a cardic massage.
