The LifeVac EMS Kit. This product includes one adult mask, one pediatric mask, and instructions for use.
The LifeVac is a non-powered, non-invasive, portable Airway Clearance Device (ACD) that was designed to remove food or an object from a victim that has an airway obstruction when the standard choking protocol has been followed without success. It was developed with a patented one-way valve that prevents air from pushing the object or food downward. This creates a one-way suction to remove the obstruction and clear the victims airway. The negative pressure generated by the force of the suction is 3 times greater than the highest recorded choke pressure.
The LifeVac is simple to use and can be used by anyone. All you need to do is place the LifeVac over the nose & mouth, pushing down, & pulling up. With the LifeVac you can protect yourself and your family.
