LifeVac Saves 93rd Life

LifeVac rejoices as another CHILD has been saved. Here is the testimonial from the mother of the child. We purchased LifeVac a few months back when our twins started getting more mobile. I kicked around the idea of buying it for a while but with two babies getting into everything I knew I needed the added peace of mind.  I never thought I would ever have to actually use it but unfortunately this last week we did.   My 9-month-old son had found a small piece of plastic my 10-year-old daughter had unknowingly dropped on the ground. I noticed my son was turning red and his eyes were watering. My […]

LifeVac has received news of the 92nd life saved. Here is the testimonial from the mother: I had first heard about the LifeVac months before I had actually bought one.

LifeVac is so proud to announce another young life saved in a choking emergency. Read the mother’s testimonial below: A couple of months a post prompted me to buy a LifeVac while pregnant.
