About this deal

Parents have been warned against airways suction devices which are promoted online for saving children’s lives when they are choking. The LifeVac is designed for easy use and includes comprehensive instructions on how and when to use. LifeVac is designed with a one way valve system, meaning that no air can be forced through the mask when it is depressed. LifeVac is the ONLY airway clearance device with the backing of multiple peer reviewed medical publications, independent medical testing and medical abstracts proving safety and effectiveness. LifeVac airway clearance device – anti choking device is FDA, MHRA, UKCA and CE accredited, LifeVac is approved for use within all countries sold.

Our long term goal is to have “non-invasive hand held suction devices” implemented into BLS first aid protocol. It acknowledges there are a number of suction-based airway clearance devices available in the UK, but says: “There is insufficient evidence on the safety or effectiveness of these devices for us to recommend their use, and we are concerned that the use of these devices could delay established treatments for choking. LifeVac are the leaders in airway clearance device technology, being the only ACD with peer reviewed medical publications, independent medical testing and medical abstracts proving safety, effectiveness, usability and lives saved. Working across multiple sectors we support clients to train staff and implement the life-saving equipment across their settings.

People that suffer from neurological diseases such as Parkinson's, MS, Cerebral Palsy, etc are at greater risk of choking due to difficulties swallowing (dysphagia).

Having a LifeVac to hand for a healthcare professional to use can help to deal with choking patients in an easier fashion, and can be the difference between life and death. The LifeVac Airway Clearance Device is designed with a patented one-way valve system that prevents air being forced through the mask when depressed. We helped save the life of a 1-year-old boy who choked on a cracker, a 9-month-old girl in Pensacola, Florida who choked on a mango slice, an 11-month-old boy who choked on a piece of tree bark, a 30-y. Designed to be at hand for situations with a higher choking risk, this device doesn't require a professional to use it.I have lifevac in my home for my wife as she is prone to choking due having a stroke, I haven’t used it yet but have done the online training and read the instruction booklet.

The grape hadn't been dislodged by the Heimlich manoeuvre, which led Lih and friends to question why an airway clearance device that did the job for you hadn't been invented.

An 11-month-old boy in New York, a 2-year-old boy who choked on watermelon, a 10-year-old boy in a school who choked on waffle fries, and a 1-year-old girl who choked on a wafer snack.

Help the child bend forward and use the heel of your hand to give up to five sharp back blows between their shoulder blades. The company is on a drive to convince regulators to relax the current restrictions in the UK, which it says do not apply in other countries. We have always received excellent services from everyone at HCS at our 2 care homes, especially Lee, Jo and Phil. If they are still choking, perform abdominal thrusts - watch this St John Ambulance video for step by step instructions.

It does not include a frail elderly person who is otherwise able-bodied or any person who is only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, such as with a broken limb. In the last review (2019/20) ILCOR stated “while we recognise they have saved lives, there is not enough evidence to encourage or discourage their use”. Please always read the labels, warnings, and directions provided with the product before using or consuming a product. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has advised the companies that the devices should only be used by healthcare professionals or people with advanced life support training.
