LifeVac Europe is a family operated business that has set out to save lives when standard choking BLS has failed.

The LifeVac was invented by a close family friend Arthur Lih who made it his mission to protect his daughter Jackie, after witnessing parents in hospital devastated due to losing their child who choked on a common grape.

Arthur, Dr. Brody, and a few close friends set out to bring LifeVac to the public by establishing a research and development facility located in the heart of Long Island in Farmingdale, NY. Our goal is to save as many lives as possible throughout the world.

LifeVac is leading the way in airway clearance technology.

LifeVac is FDA Registered, MHRA Registered as a class 1 medical device and CE accredited.

Since the invention of LifeVac it has saved many lives from choking to death when standard choking protocol has failed in the USA, Canada, UK, Greece and Spain. Choking protocol (back blows, abdominal thrusts and CPR) is only 70% effective when performed correctly by professionals. For people that are wheelchair users this statistic drops drastically due to being unable to receive the abdominal thrusts or back blows if in a moulded wheelchair.

In the UK LifeVac has been welcomed into the care sector where we have saved many lives. We have worked with and equipped 1000’s of care homes across the UK and Europe from small independent care homes to some of the largest care home providers. Below are just some of the care groups we have worked with in the UK.
