Lifevac is an easy to use, non invasive suction device. Developed to dislodge and clear obstructions from the airway of a choking person when traditional basic life support (BLS) procedures fail.
Ideal for use on people who cannot receive standard interventions such as back slaps and the Heimlich Manoeuvre, due to disabilities or medical conditions.
This airway clearing device features a patented one-way valve which when applied prevents air from pushing food or objects downward and creates an upwards suction force to dislodge and remove the obstruction.
When using lifevac no damage is caused to the mouth cavity and it will not activate the casualties gag reflex, both of which can pose further risks to the panicked victim.
Each Lifevac comes complete with one suction valve, colour-coded masks in adult and paediatric sizes, a practice mask for use during practical training and clearly written instructions.
