Dr. Oz uses Act Fast Vest to Teach Life Saving Procedure

El Dorado Hills, CA (September 23, 2009) Dr. Oz uses the Act+Fast Choking Rescue Trainer during segment “You could save a life” on NBC’s The Dr. Oz Show. He explains that the Choking Rescue Trainer vest “mimics exactly what happens when choking” then uses the vest to show his audience the correct way to perform the Abdominal Thrust Maneuver. An audience member rescues him while wearing the Act+Fast vest, then he demonstrates a “self- rescue” with the vest using a chair. He emphasizes that knowing the correct procedure may mean the difference between life and death for someone who is choking. If there’s a choking emergency you need to “act fast”.
