LifeVac Anti-Choking Device


We are now reading news reports nearly every day of children and adults choking to death. Our new LifeVac can change this. Over the last 6 months LifeVac has had huge uptake and support from care homes and care service providers such as Exemplar Health Care plus various other establishments in the UK such as in schools, restaurants, pharmacies and even in the home. LifeVac is ideal for disabled people that cannot receive traditional choking treatment.

LifeVac was invented by Arthur Lih from Long Island New York. He came up with the idea when hearing about a little child who also choked on a grape and died last year when abdominal thrusts and back blows did not work. His daughter was of the same age and he was determined this was not going to happen to his daughter.

LifeVac is new single suction anti choking device. As the LifeVac  has a one way patented valve, when applied it only sucks up and does not push air down when pulled therefore LifeVac creates three times more pressure than the abdominal thrust and chest compressions as trained in First Aid.  The device is ideal to be used on the elderly, disabled, people with swallowing disorders plus any person where the abdominal thrust and back slaps are not suitable. To dislodge an object from an airway in tests it takes 5 x abdominal thrusts and 5 x back slaps to get 85% success. In all testing LifeVac has dislodged obstruction of the airway 99.9% of the time in one use.  LifeVac is FDA approved, MHRA approved as a class one medical device, Canadian Health Service approved and CE accredited.

Published in Medical Journal

We are pleased to announce that an independent study of the LifeVac on a human cadaver has been peer reviewed and published in the American Journal Of Emergency Medicine by Elsevier. Results of this study suggest that the LifeVac be included as part of the guidelines used for basic life support management. The LifeVac dislodged obstruction of the airway 49/50 trials on the first pull.

It is about time people in the UK start hearing about LifeVac quicker than we can do alone. We would like your help to help us save lives and to stop fatal accidents.
