NYC Choking Posters Get An Artistic Makeover

State laws often require restaurants to have a sign clearly posted in the dining room that shows how to help someone who is choking, and in New York the official poster was designed by the New York Times own Steve Duenes.

Steve’s poster is pretty snazzy compared to most first aid posters, but New Yorkers are a fickle bunch, and when they grew bored of the same old choking poster artists came to the rescue with brand new renditions.

There’s one featuring Bea Arthur using the Heimlich maneuver on a unicorn by Jason O’Malley:

An action packed, Escape From New York themed poster by Phil Ashworth:

And Grey Jay’s dramatic dance themed Tango poster created for Malbec and Tango House in NYC, which shows how the act of saving a person's life can have a rhythm all its own:

These artsy choking posters are spicing up the world of restaurant safety, and giving folks something fun to look at while they thoroughly chew their bread.
