HENRY J. HEIMLICH Smiling 3½x5 image of the controversial developer of the anti-choking maneuver Photograph signed: "Best Wishes/ Henry Heimlich". B/w, 3½x5. Dr. Henry J. Heimlich's (1920-2016) career is notable for the abundance of creative, simple solutions he has provided for seemingly insurmountable health and medical problems. In 1945, he developed an innovative treatment for victims of trachoma, an incurable bacterial infection of the eyelids that was causing blindness throughout Asia and the Middle East. In the 1950s, Dr. Heimlich conceived of an operation to replace the esophagus which is used today to overcome birth defects of the esophagus. Heimlich then set out to develop a valve that would drain blood and air out of the chest cavity. In 1964, the Heimlich Chest Drain Valve was introduced. Today, more than 250,000 Heimlich valves are used worldwide each year to treat patients with chest wounds or following surgery. Each valve saves a life. In 1974, Dr. Heimlich published findings on what was to become the Heimlich maneuver. A week later, the first choking victim was saved by the method. Since its introduction, the Heimlich Maneuver has saved hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. alone from choking or drowning. Fine condition.
