Dr. Ranj is a NHS doctor specialising in the care of children, young people and families but you will probably know him as ITV's This Morning resident Doctor. On the show Dr Ranj demonstrated how to stop a child from choking and the video has been shared thousands of times and watched by millions.
We were very pleased to be given the chance to speak to Dr Ranj
"This time of year we understand that parents are rushed off their feet with all the responsibilities that come with the festive period. Yet, more so than ever, we have to be vigilant of children and the hazards that lie around the house like small items from Christmas crackers and half completed building sets. Ensuring things are picked up is important as obviously prevention is always best, but with the small colourful items proving irresistable to children, it's vital that parents are able to deal with the situation should it ever arise."
It's so important and the video makes it easy to understand and we really hope you watch it. Dr Ranj continued by saying...
"Choking still causes 25 deaths in children every year. I really hope all the parents who attend your Little Kickers classes not only watch the video but also learn and then share the information. This video has already saved lives, we're hoping it is able to save more. Nobody ever thinks it will happen to them and I hope it never will, but it's not worth the risk of not knowing what to do'
