When somebody begins to choke, virtually everyone around them will panic.

This is because nearly everyone has experienced the feeling of terror when an object becomes stuck in their airway and they cannot  breathe.

When this happens, time is of the essence  before the person becomes unconscious. If the obstruction is not removed, brain death is expected after just 10 minutes due to lack of oxygen. Placing things such as tubes or fingers into the mouth is dangerous due to the risk of pushing the obstruction further back or causing oral damage.

LifeVac is designed with a patented one way valve system, this means when applied no air can be forced through the interchangeable sized mask’s when depressed. This creates one-way suction to safely and effectively remove the lodged food or object. Being non invasive means there is no risk damaging the oral cavity, pushing the obstruction further down, pushing the tongue back in a panic situation, no tubes can become blocked rendering the device useless or activating the gag reflex putting the casualty at greater risk.

LifeVac is the only non invasive airway clearance device and the only airway clearance device with independent medical testing, peer reviewed medical publications, medical abstracts proving safety, effectiveness and lives saved.

LifeVac created the market for airway clearance devices and are leading the way for airway clearance device technology.

"Why this little invention could be in every school nationwide!"



• 6-7 vulnerable people die each month in UK care homes due to choking related incidences. Choking is one of the leading causes of accidental death in adults over the age of 65, even with strict meal/care plans. This is due to many reasons such as Dysphagia, disabilities or medications taken which cause lack of saliva. 85% of all choking related deaths are caused by food.

• 2500 people die from asphyxiated airways in the UK – St John Ambulance
• The UK currently has an 8 minute target time for an ambulance to reach an incident
• 4-6 minutes of oxygen starvation brain damage is possible
• 6-10 minutes of oxygen starvation brain damage is probable
• 10+ minutes of oxygen starvation the victim is likely to die
• Many people in the UK cannot receive conventional treatment for choking due to pregnancy, disability, age or obesity

People who suffer from disabilities are at high risk from choking

• People that suffer from Neurological Diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, ALS and Alzheimer’s disease are all susceptible to developing dysphagia
• There are around 127,000 people in the UK who suffer from Parkinson’s Disease
• Around 8000 people suffer with Huntington’s Disease
• There are approximately 100,000 sufferers of Multiple Sclerosis in the UK, with 30-40 percent of those people developing serious problems with dysphagia
• About 100,000 people who suffer with Cerebral Palsy
• 5000 ALS sufferers in the UK
• There is an estimated 820,000 people who suffer from Alzheimer’s Disease in the UK

All of these people could be helped with the use of the LifeVac unit.


LifeVac Can Save the Life of Someone Choking

LifeVac is in over 1400 care and nursing homes across the UK and has saved many lives from choking to death when standard BLS has failed. We have worked with small independent care homes to some of the largest care and nursing home providers in the UK supporting them with training and the implementation of LifeVac each step of the way.

An average of 6-7 choking related deaths occur each month in care and nursing homes across the UK. Helps us safeguard the people you provide the best quality of care for.

LifeVac is a non-invasive single patient portable airway clearance device developed for resuscitating a choking victim when standard BLS protocol has been followed without success. LifeVac comes with interchangeable sized masks to fit different casualties as it is not the case of one size mask fits all. LifeVac is also the only airway clearance device with independent medical testing and peer reviewed publications.

The negative pressure generated by the force of the suction creates over 329 mm Hg which is 3 times greater than the highest recorded cough.  The duration of suction is minimal so LifeVac is safe and effective. LifeVac has a patented one way valve which means when applied no air can be forced through the mask.



LifeVac has worked with over 2800 care and nursing homes across the UK, here are just a few of our customers.
