The hemlock maneuver

The etymology of hemlock passes through O.E. hemlic, for ‘poison, sickness, injury’. That’s parlously close to heimlich, the canny physician who developed the move, close enough for plenty to have made the jump. The hemlock maneuver is particularly appropriate in cases of accidental poisoning.

there are a lot more important things to learn when dealing with young kids like how to do the Hemlock maneuver on a baby

Hat and Gram starting laughing as Henry laughed and I laughed to. I almost had to give him the hemlock maneuver.

I felt someone get behind me and start the hemlock maneuver.

My dog was chewing on those combat roach motel. What do I do?

I dont wanna take the bbsitting class, some of the WORST baby sitters are the one’s who graduated from the class, but dont get me wrog, I do agree that you should know the hemlock maneuver.
Babysitting guide

I had a dream that a lady who introduced me to her 2 kids and 1 baby that put everything in his mouth. His mother didn’t make him take it out so i did, i would always take things like hair combs and batteries out of his mouth. then he was in the room with his mother and older brother choking, i ran up and tried the hemlock maneuver but its stomach felt like it was filled with batteries so i opened his mouth and pulled 2 hair combs, 4 batteries and the package for the batteries.
Unheimliche dream interpretation

We saw in passing the Heimlich remover. The hemlock remover is an uncanny natural.

The food in my throat got wedged in my throat and I started to cough heavily, thumping at my chest. “Someone help!” Carol screamed, putting her hands on my shoulder. She tried the hemlock remover, but didn’t seem to know what she was doing.

Re: The hemlock maneuver

I might name a song after this one. I have trouble thinking of titles anyway.
