The Choking Game Can Be Deadly Archived
It’s called the “choking game," but it’s no game, and there are no winners. Some kids are choking themselves or each other, by hand or with some form of noose. The intent is to get a high, caused by a temporary lack of oxygen to the brain. Tragically, this so-called ‘game’ sometimes goes too far and results in death. In this broadcast, Dr. Robin Toblin discusses this latest activity and steps that can be taken to bring an end to this deadly game. Created: 2/15/2008 by MMWR. Date Released: 2/21/2008. Series Name: A Cup of Health with CDC.
