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
  • 1 x Storage Box
  • 1 x Instruction Booklet
  • 1 x A5 Basic Life Support Leaflet
  • 1 x Feedback Form

Who Can Use the LifeVac?

As agreed by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, the LifeVac device should only be used in the following situations:

  • By registered healthcare professionals or individuals with advanced life support training, only if currently recognised basic life support protocols have failed; or
  • In situations where emergency services are unable to respond, for example on aeroplanes or ships, only if currently recognised basic life support protocols have failed; or
  • On individuals in moulded wheelchairs, only if currently recognised basic life support protocols have failed.
  • LifeVac should not be used on children, in schools and in other public places such as restaurants and shopping centres.

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 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:

  • LifeVac Standard: Well suited to use in houses and smaller businesses
  • LifeVac Wall-Mounted Kit: Supplied in a wall-mounted box ideal for care homes and areas with a high risk of choking 

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.
