Dealing with Emergency Situations
You and a guest are invited to join us at our next free community event: Dealing with Emergency Situations. Come and learn about what to consider or how to deal with an emergency situation. Following your surgery many things have changed, including what to do if you need emergency care.
Laryngectomees and other neck breathers are at greater risk of receiving inadequate acute care when they experience breathing difficulties. We will provide examples of emergency situations such as contacting the police, fire or ambulance services as well as learning to deal with emergency care at home.
To help you and your loved ones to feel more confident in an emergency situation we will provide you with a free emergency card you can always carry with you.
Atos Medical will be hosting MyVoice events in January and February throughout communities in the UK.
They are called ‘MyVoice’ events because it’s all about you and your needs. At the same time, it’s a great opportunity to get to know other people living with a total laryngectomy in your area. At these events, peer-to-peer experiences are shared and exchanged. It’s nice to know that other people share the same concerns and aspirations as you or are going through similar challenges.
Countrywide Supplies is part of the Atos Medical Group. Atos Medical host ‘MyVoice Events’ events across the UK where you will be able to meet other people who've had a laryngectomy and learn from their experience.
