It has probably never even crossed your mind, but choking happens much more often than we think. Usually the people around have no idea what to do. It could happen in a restaurant, at home, at school. Knowing how to act in time could save a life.

The S.O.S. Respira campaign, in collaboration with leading representatives from the hospitality industry, is designed to help everyone know how to act in the event of a choking incident.

Along with the videos and materials that have been created for this campaign we also have the free S.O.S. app. Respira explains in detail, through video tutorials by professionals, what to do to prevent choking as well as the immediate action you should take.

Download it so that you have a tool on your phone to help you act quickly if someone is choking. Saving someone’s life is a question of seconds.

S.O.S. Breathe is an initiative by Fundación MAPFRE, together with the Spanish Society of Emergency Medicine (SEMES) and the Federation of Chefs and Confectioners Associations of Spain (FACYRE)
