Self Performed Tracheotomy With Steak Knife

Strange but true, a man saves his own life by performing surgery on himself because if breathing problems

An Omaha man struggling to breathe saved his own life by performing a tracheotomy using a steak knife.

Steve Wilder, 55, says he thought he was going to die when he awoke one night and couldn’t breathe.

Wilder says he didn’t think that the ambulance would arrive in time, so in a desperate plight to regain his breath, he took the steak knife from the kitchen draw and made the small incision in his neck to allow the air to reach his lungs.

Wilder suffered from throat cancer and other related breathing problems several years before. During this time, he experienced a similar episode where his air passages swelled shut.

He explained that this is why he immediately knew what had happened this time around.

Wilder is now on track to full recovery and doctors don’t expect him to suffer any adverse effects from at-home tracheotomy once it’s healed.
