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

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.

Who Can Use the LifeVac Standard Device?

This standard LifeVac Kit is ideal for use both in the home and in professional businesses such as cafes or restaurants. Featuring a handy box for storage, this LifeVac Kit can be stored discreetly in kitchen or dining areas.

The LifeVac Standard includes three adult sized masks that should suit most adults. Please note that these masks are not suitable for people under 10kg (paediatric masks are available separately).

How Easy Is the LifeVac to Use?

The LifeVac is designed for easy use in the home and includes comprehensive instructions on how and when to use. You do not need to be medically trained in order to use the LifeVac but we would recommend being familiar with the operation of the device itself.

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 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 five sizes that should be suitable for all ages. Each size is colour coordinated for easier identification when needed, please see below for details:

  •  Paediatric (white)
  • 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 three kits that are well suited to different uses:

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