Date:2/2/2017

A memorial service for Dr. Henry Heimlich will take place at Cincinnati's historic Memorial Hall in Cincinnati, Ohio, at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, February 3rd. He passed away on December 17th at the age of 96.

Dr. Heimlich was best-known for having invented the Heimlich Maneuver, which has been used by people of all ages to save choking victims around the globe. He also devised many other lifesaving innovations.

In 1957, he was the first American surgeon to perform the reversed gastric tube operation, which allowed people who had lost their ability to swallow to again eat normally. A decade later, he invented the Heimlich Chest Drain Valve, which saved the lives of thousands of soldiers in the Vietnam War and is commonly used today for patients undergoing chest surgery.

Dr. Heimlich received the Albert Lasker Award in 1984 and the American Academy of Achievement Award the following year. In 1992, he was the guest of honor at the National Awards Dinner of the Maimonides Research Institute in Haifa, Israel. He was inducted into the Engineering and Science Hall of Fame in 1984 and into the Safety and Health Hall of Fame International in 1993.

Dr. Heimlich’s autobiography, Heimlich’s Maneuvers: My Seventy Years of Lifesaving Innovation, was published by Prometheus Books in 2014.
