Choking can kill in less than 10 minutes
Time is of the essence when somebody begins to choke
The UK currently has an 8 minute target time for an ambulance to reach an incident.
4 – 6 minutes of oxygen starvation means brain damage is possible.
6 – 10 minutes of oxygen starvation means brain damage is probable.
Over 10 minutes of oxygen starvation means the victim is likely to die.
Many people around the world cannot receive conventional treatment for choking due to pregnancy, disability, age, or obesity.
Every second counts.

How the airway clearance device works
LifeVac has two sonic welded discs for interchangeable sized masks, as one size will not “fit all” and a one-way valve system which means when applied no air can be forced through the interchangeable sized masks. LifeVac’s non-invasive design means no tubes can push the tongue back or obstruct further down in a panic situation. This also means no tubes can become blocked rendering the device useless if only part of the obstruction has been removed.
