Inventor of the Heimlich Manoeuvre Performs His First Heimlich at Age 96 May 28, 2016 12:33

It's never too late to save a life!

The inventor of the lifesaving Heimlich Maneuver used the anti-choking technique named after him for the first time last Monday to save a woman who was choking on a piece of bone from the meal they were enjoying for dinner. The woman, Patty Ris, 87, was seated beside the retired doctor for dinner when the accident happened.

Dr. Heimlich, inventor of the aptly named Heimlich Maneuver, was quick to his feet upon seeing his co-resident choke on her hamburger meat. A staff member of Deupree House who was present at the scene recalls Dr. Heimlich calmly perform his lifesaving move on the choking woman. This dislodged "a piece of food with some bone" from the woman's throat, saving her.

When asked about the incident, Heimlich recalls, "She was going to die if she wasn’t treated. I did it, and a piece of food with some bone in it flew out of her mouth." He further says that Ms. Ris thanked him personally with a handwritten note. "She told me how wonderful and fortunate she felt," he added.

The Heimlich Maneuver

Unknown to many, choking causes up 4,800 deaths in the United States alone, but increased public knowledge of the Heimlich Maneuver can put a dent in that number.

The Heimlich Maneuver was first introduced in 1974 by Dr. Henry Heimlich as a standard anti-choking technique that anyone, not just medical professionals, can perform. It has since been adopted by international medical bodies as a standard anti-choking procedure, and is taught in high school and college levels, as well as in most workplaces.

It goes without saying that knowledge of the simplest first aid techniques can save lives-- and it's never too late to be a hero!

According to Zoo Deputy Director Joe Fitting, this special wolfpack will comprise of three brothers which he describes to be very active creatures. When asked about the zoo's decision to add wolves to the exhibits, Fitting noted this move is the result of a partnership with the federal government. Previously, North American Wolves were added to the exhibit with their assistance, and the addition of Mexican Gray Wolves is their latest work yet.

To help the wolves maintain their natural lifestyle, the zoo has also employed several state-of-the-art technology to stimulate the wolves into staying active.

Mexican Gray Wolves, like their North American counterparts, are considered at-risk species in North America. In the past, several proposals have been made to declare these rare species as endangered, so as to raise funding and government efforts to protect and preserve these magnificent creatures.

To find the Mexican Gray Wolfpack at the San Francisco zoo, keep your eye out for old bear grottos which is what the three brothers will call home in June.

Prescription for Happiness :) May 17, 2016 13:44


We did some research and found that pets can do many things for Human health including:

1. Making your immune system stronger. Given all the hair and everything else pets bring into the house your body becomes acclimated to regular day to day stuff that you get exposed too. Have you ever heard of how honey can help your immune system and help allergies? This is because through the local honey you get a small bit of exposure and then you body adapts. It is very similar with the small exposures to the environment that your animals produce. 

2. Helping you become more fit. Obviously, if you have a pet you are bound to walk more and maybe even go for a run. Also bending down and getting low with your furry friend is always a good thing too! Even the act of petting and animal is healthy. 

3. Relaxing a person. I don't know about you but I think for most people this is certainly true. When you have a pet on your lap and you are hugging a pet you feel happier.  Kids with pets clearly have psychological advantages from being near their pets. 

4. Dating and being social. According to Bark Block, dogs help people with their dating and to be more social. It is proven that being social is definitely is healthy. People late in their lives that have social networks live longer. An animal acts as a friend much in the same way that a human acts as a friend and helps you live longer. 

Well, I also want to point out these Animal BFF yoga pants too because they happen to make me smile. Check them out here!  I hope you enjoyed the amazing picture our illustrator Fritzie created above at the beginning of the article.....after all our mission is to spread happiness.
