The LifeVac is a non-invasive, non-powered, portable Airway Clearance Device (ACD) that has been developed to remove an object or food from a victim with an airway obstruction when the standard choking protocol has been followed without success. It has been designed with a patented one-way valve that prevents air from pushing the object or food downward. This creates a one-way suction to remove the obstruction and clear the airway of the victim. The negative pressure generated by the force of the suction is 3 times greater than the highest recorded choke pressure.
The LifeVac is incredibly simple to use, and anyone can use it. It’s as easy as placing the LifeVac over the nose & mouth, pushing down, & pulling up. With the LifeVac you can protect yourself and protect your family.
