In a Choking Emergency, Every Second Counts

When a person begins choking, time is of the essence. Getting the person's throat and airway clear again, as soon as possible, is vital for their health and survival.

  • In just 4 to 6 minutes, oxygen starvation means brain damage is possible
  • In just 6 to 10 minutes, oxygen starvation means brain damage is probable
  • More than 10 minutes of oxygen starvation means the victim is very likely to die

So, every second counts!

Many people, however, are unable to receive traditional first aid or treatment for choking due to pregnancy, disability, age, or obesity. That's why the highly effective LifeVac airway clearing device has become so popular all over the world!

LifeVac Saves Lives!

If First Aid methods fail in a choking emergency, or if the choking victim is unable to receive traditional First Aid due to an existing condition, the fact is: LifeVac saves the lives of adults and children.

LifeVac is simple and effective, and it is non-invasive, safe, and easy to use. LifeVac is the premiere airway clearance device backed by independent medical testing, numerous peer-reviewed medical publications, and medical abstracts -- and they all prove LifeVac's safety and effectiveness.

230 Lives (And Counting!) Have Been Saved By LifeVac

To date, 230 lives have been saved by LifeVac users. That number is sure to increase as more and more families have the FDA-approved LifeVac in their homes or vehicles -- or both!

  • The LifeVac Home Kit -- Includes 1 adult mask, 1 pediatric mask, and a practice mask

LifeVac's Patented Design Gives You Peace of Mind

LifeVac is designed with a patented valve that prevents any air from exiting through the mask.

This valve prevents air from pushing food or objects further down into the airway. It also creates a one-way suction that powerfully but very safely removes the lodged food or object.
