LIFEVAC IS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE

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. This creates a one-way suction to safely and effectively remove the lodged food or object in the upper airway. LifeVac has saved many lives across the world, 8 of these in UK care homes. LifeVac is non invasive so there is no risk of pushing the tongue back or obstruction further down in a panic situation.

LifeVac is in over a 1200 care homes across the UK, from small independent care homes to some of the largest care home providers.

For UK enquiries or a demonstration please contact us directly and one of our team will be happy to help.

We offer face to face training, train the trainer training and E-Learner training to suit your needs. When a LifeVac is used and you let us know we will replace your LifeVac FREE OF CHARGE.

DON’T BECOME A STATISTIC


 

CHOKING STATISTICS:

• 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 1200 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 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 should only be used in the following situations:

• By registered healthcare professionals or individuals with BLS training if current 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.
