What About Bob?

Media Item

In “What About Bob?” (released by Touchstone Pictures in 1991), Bob demonstrates what NOT to do!

The character played by Richard Dreyfuss can still cough and therefore has only PARTIAL airway obstruction. Also, this clip does NOT show the proper Heimlich maneuver technique!

In real life, however, actor Bill Murray recently and heroically showed that he does know when and how to perform the Heimich maneuver (please click link below).

Did You Know?!

The presence of older siblings in the household increases the risk for choking, possibly because toys and other objects with small parts are more likely to be present and caregiving activities, such as feeding, to be undertaken by older siblings.[Ref:44]
