LifeVac Standard Portable Airway Clearance Device

Providing a non-invasive solution to removing airway obstruction, the LifeVac Standard Portable Airway Clearance Device offers an easier way to deal with choking. Supplied with a number of interchangeable sized masks, the LifeVac Standard includes everything that you need to get started with airway clearance.

What's Included with the LifeVac Standard Device?

The LifeVac Portable Airway Clearer includes everything you need to get started, including the following components:

  • 1 x LifeVac Emergency Airway Clearance Device
  • 2 x Medium Adult Masks
  • 1 x Small Adult Mask
  • 1x Paediatric Mask
  • 1 x Storage Box
  • 1 x Instruction Booklet

Who Can Use the LifeVac?

Designed as a simpler alternative for providing immediate assistance to individuals in choking emergencies, this device is an essential investment for the following environments:

  • Schools/childcare centers
  • Restaurants
  • Healthcare facilities
  • Nursing homes
  • Offices
  • Shopping centers
  • Airports

How Does the LifeVac Work?

The LifeVac Airway Clearance Device is designed with a patented one-way valve system that prevents air being forced through the mask when depressed. This creates one-way suction to safely and effectively remove the lodged food or object.

How Easy Is the LifeVac to Use?

The LifeVac is designed for easy use and includes comprehensive instructions on how and when to use. For a detailed demonstration on how to use the LifeVac, please watch the video below.

Is Non-Invasive Airway Clearance Safe?

Non-invasive airway clearance has a number of benefits including the following:

  • No risk of damaging the oral cavity
  • No risk of pushing the obstruction further down
  • No risk of pushing the tongue back in panic situations
  • No tubes that can become blocked
  • No tubes activating the gag reflex and putting the casualty at greater risk

How Can LifeVac Help in a Care Home?

People that suffer from neurological diseases such as Parkinson's, MS, Cerebral Palsy, etc are at greater risk of choking due to difficulties swallowing (dysphagia). Having a LifeVac to hand for a healthcare professional to use can help to deal with choking patients in an easier fashion, and can be the difference between life and death.

How Do I Know Which Mask to Use?

Masks for the LifeVac system are available in four sizes that should be suitable for most adults. Each size is colour coordinated for easier identification when needed, please see below for details:

Adult Size Colour
Adult Small Yellow
Adult Medium Green
Adult Large Orange
Adult Extra Large Red

Please note that the size needed for use depends on the size of the person choking and the size of their features.

What Other Versions of the LifeVac Are Available?

The LifeVac is available in two kits that are well suited to different uses:

Can I Use the LifeVac on Myself?

The device should only be used if other basic life support protocols have failed. Furthermore, as the device is primarily recommended for use in care homes or similiar environments where trained individuals are present, and as the choker would need to be laid prone, the LifeVac is not recommended to be used on yourself.

Looks useful, well worth having
19 August 2023  |  Neil

My wife has had 4 serious choking incidents now and the Heimlich Manoevre doesn't always work well so I'm pleased to get something that will help. All looks good and the test mask seems to produce a effective obstruction extraction force. Hope I don't need it but it's good to have it in the cupboard.

Not used

Not used the Lifevac and hopefully never need to use it. That said it looks like it could do the job should it be required. In away rating this item is a bit unfair on the Lifevac. It looks and feels adequate in build quality, but until used successfully I canít give 5 stars.
