Experts: Strangulation assaults often mishandled

By Madeline Buckley

South Bend Tribune

The woman who called 911 was gasping for breath as she told the dispatch operator that her partner strangled her. But even as she struggled to inhale, taking shallow, choking breaths, she said she didn’t need a paramedic, minimizing the danger she was in.
St. Joseph County police and prosecutors heard the 911 call during a training session on Friday, a classic example of the aftermath of a strangulation assault.

Manhattan DA: Domestic violence often an invisible crime

July 11, 2014

CBS News

By Manhattan DA Cyrus R. Vance, Jr.

I want to give you a glimpse into the violent and tragic world of domestic violence by telling you about a young woman named Sylvie Cachay.

Sylvie was a 33-year-old fashion designer in a highly-volatile relationship with her boyfriend, Nicholas Brooks, a drug user without a job or employment prospects. While Sylvie worked to succeed in the fast-paced New York City fashion industry, he spent his days sleeping at her apartment and spending the money she earned. She knew he cheated on her, and had previously paid for sex with women, but could not let go of him. She repeatedly attempted to break up with him, yet he always convinced her to take him back.

Nurse’s notes: Strangulation conversation continued

July 8, 2014

The Missoulian

by Cat Otway

Choking occurs when an object such as a piece of candy becomes stuck inside the airway, preventing normal breathing. Strangulation occurs from closure of the blood vessels carrying precious oxygen to the brain or airway closure in the windpipe from external pressure. Another way of looking at this is choking is accidental – strangulation is intentional.
