HEIMLICH-LIFE WORK
94-year-old Ohio doctor behind Heimlich maneuver pens memoir to preserve anti-choking method

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, February 17, 2014 10:58 AM EST
CINCINNATI


The 94-year-old Cincinnati surgeon who wrote the book on saving choking victims through his namesake Heimlich maneuver has now penned a new book: his memoir.

Dr. Henry Heimlich hopes his recently published autobiography ensures that the procedure that made his name a household word will be used correctly.

The maneuver involves applying upward pressure on the diaphragm through thrusts to the abdomen to create an air flow that forces food or other objects out of the windpipe. It has drawn praise and gratitude from those who have used or been saved by it.

But not all health organizations agree with Heimlich on how the maneuver should be used. And some of his other ideas such as using malaria injections to treat AIDS have drawn sharp criticism.
