The LifeVac is a non-powered, non-invasive, single-use-only airway clearance device developed for resuscitating a victim with an airway obstruction when current choking protocols have 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 manufacturer’s 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
Highly recommend this product! My 2-year-old son choked on a large peppermint and was completely without air for at least a minute. Being cpr certified, I was unable to get it out. Just one pull from the lifevac and it was sucked right out. My son is alive today because of this product!
Incredible! We are so happy you had a LifeVac on hand. Did you fill out a saved life report on our site for your replacement unit?
As a physician I would only recommend quality items that work. This is an example! Well made and simple. Do NOT buy the low quality knockoffs (we bought a few to compare). Each knockoff had quality issues. Lifevac item well made. Bought some for each of the households in the family. Currently working to get them on our local ambulance/firefighter vehicles. Excellent product
This device saved my sons life. It was easy to use under the stress of our choking incident. My son is 15 months, he couldn’t breathe. After several back blows my husband used the LifeVac on our baby, his airway cleared. He is alive and well today because of this life saving device. I will forever recommend the LifeVac to every single person I know.
We carry our lifevac everywhere! Having children I knew this would help give us peace of mind. We are so thankful that we had the lifevac when a choking incident occurred with a marble. We were successfully able to dislodge the marble. I truly believe the outcome would not have been the same if we had not had one. We recommend to everyone & can’t wait to be able to supply them to all of our family members. We are also hoping to get them for all of our local schools.
This product is a must in every home, school, or other places where the public gathers. I thankfully got it a couple of years ago and had it handy when my one-year-old choked, and nothing seemed to help release the piece he was choking on. We gently laid him on his back and used the LifeVac on him. Something was released in there, and he stopped choking.
As a mom of 4 very active boys, choking was always my biggest fear. I heard so many horror stories that shook me to the bone. So when I stumbled upon this product, I immediately purchased it without blinking.
