The LifeVac is a non-powered single-patient portable suction device developed for resuscitating an aspirating victim when the standard protocol has been followed without success. The negative pressure generated by the force of the suction is 3 times greater than the highest recorded abdominal thrusts. The duration of suction is minimal so LifeVac is safe and effective.
- No prescription required
- Not equipped to be used on persons under 22lbs. (Based on the mask manufacturers’ general guidelines for the pediatric mask, 22lbs. is the recommended minimum weight for a proper fit. We have confirmed that LifeVac is safe and effective for this weight range and above.)
- Check masks periodically and strongly consider replacement every two to three years
Better safe than sorry, I always say! My daughter had a baby boy back in September. He has starting putting everything in his mouth and will be crawling within the next couple if months. I felt now was the time to make this purchase. She was delighted to have this invaluable kit at her disposal.
Product arrived very fast and was just how expected. I hope we never have to use it, but I have peace of mind knowing we have it on hand.
