• Leads to 100,000 visits to the ER yearly
• Over 100 million Americans have no defense against aspiration emergencies due to pregnancy, disability, obesity, or being alone
• More people die from aspirating than die in fires, drowning or accidental shootings
• A leading cause of accidental deaths in persons over the age of 65

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE

• 0-4 minutes: Brain damage unlikely
• 4-6 minutes: Brain damage possible
• 6-10 minutes: Brain damage probable
• 10 minutes +: Probably brain death
• Average emergency response time is 7 to 12 minutes

FACTS

• Of all choking deaths in 2000, 41% caused by food, 59% by nonfood items (balloons, etc)
• Candy is associated with 19% ER visits for aspiration emergencies – 65% due to hard candy and 35% gummy bears, chocolate, caramel, etc.
• Coins were responsible for 18% of ER visits for children age 1 to 4 years

HOW LIFEVAC WORKS
LIFEVAC CAN SAVE A LIFE

LifeVac is designed with a patented valve to prevent any air from exiting through the mask. This patented designed valve prevents air from pushing food or objects downward. This creates a one-way suction to remove the lodged food or object.

• Capable of generating over 300 mmhg of suction
• No prescription required

 

 
  

LIFEVAC HOME KIT

The LifeVac is a non-powered, non-invasive, single patient portable suction device developed for resuscitating a victim with an airway obstruction.

The negative pressure generated by the force of the suction is 3 times greater than the highest recorded abdominal thrusts.  The LifeVac is capable of generating over 300 mmHg of suction. The duration of suction is minimal so LifeVac is safe and effective. No prescription required.

The LifeVac Home Kit comes with 1 adult mask, 1 pediatric mask, 1 test mask & Instructions for Use literature.
