Arthur Lih the inventor of LifeVac shares his story

We are extremely proud to have created LifeVac with Arthur who is a close family friend as well as a part of our inspiration.

Since LifeVacs invention and the forming of LifeVac USA and LifeVac Europe, there is now LifeVac Spain, LifeVac Canada, LifeVac Southeast Europe, LifeVac South Africa, LifeVac Polska and LifeVac Japan. All with one goal to save lives and become a part of standard choking protocol to raise the current 70% effectiveness of BLS choking protocol to as close to a 100% effective as possible.

For people who are wheelchair users this 70% effectiveness is less than half as abdominal thrusts may not be able to be performed.

LifeVac has saved many lives around the world, the most recent being in a care home in Preston, United Kingdom and Lifevac’s first life saved in Australia.

Suction has been around for many years in ALS  protocol, but due to this type of suction being invasive (having tubes) there are risks such as pushing the obstruction further back, tearing of the Lingual Frenulum making the tongue become an additional obstruction and tubes becoming blocked rendering the equipment useless. So this type of suction is restricted to ALS trained professionals that can counteract these complications.

This why LifeVac was invented, so that non-invasive suction can be used by anyone. LifeVac remains the ONLY airway clearance device with independent medical testing and peer reviewed medical publications proving safety, effectiveness and lives saved.
