DESCRIPTION

This is a rare and unique opportunity to own a piece of Presidential history.

In 2002 the nation narrowly averted a non-event when President George W. Bush choked on a pretzel while watching reruns of Gilligan’s Island in the Oval Office.

As White House Physician I was summoned by the Secret Service after President Bush lost consciousness and fell-face first into the Oval Office coffee table.

The President was blue in the face and a spilled bag of pretzels indicated that he was choking. I was able to effectively perform the Heimlich Maneuver, which dislodged a large piece of pretzel that was lodged in the President’s windpipe.

Other than a mild contusion to his left cheek when he fainted due to oxygen loss, the President suffered no ill effects. It is my observation that President Bush has a high tolerance for cerebral hypoxia.
