Heimlich does Heimlich

    96 years old and still saving lives ... Dr. Henry Heimlich uses his maneuver to save a fellow nursing-home resident from choking:


    Although the headline seems inaccurate, as Heimlich told the BBC he did use it in 2003 to save someone. So he's 2-for-2.

    Chatted up his daughter at a houseparty at Mizzou. She had the sexiest SA accent.

    That's all I got to say.

    The Man Behind the Maneuver

    Interesting story from Radiolab about Heimlich. He became kind of a medical kook and the maneuver has come under scrutiny as effective or safe (going off a months old memory of hearing it).

    I couldn't find a video clip of it, but Quantum Leap did a great parity of the Heimlich. Scott Baccula was playing a mentality challenged man who saved Heimlich's life by using the maneuver. It was a throw away scene, but quite funny.
