Lifevac Review-The Anti-Choking Device?
LifeVac Review: There are times where we choke on our food or our pathways are obstructed by a certain object. While using the Heimlich maneuver and other similar things can help you clear your pathways, none of them might be the best solution. Fortunately, there is a revolutionary device that can help clear the person’s pathways, thereby helping them survive after such an ordeal.
LifeVac is a patented life-saving device that is proven to be the most effective way to help a child or adult during a choking emergency.¹ Place LifeVac over the mouth and nose to create a seal. The one-way valve prevents air from pushing food or objects downward when pressed. Then simply pull to create a one-way suction to remove the lodged food or object in seconds.
Read ahead as this article is for the LifeVac Review.
What Is Lifevac?
The LifeVac is an airway clearing device that quickly and safely removes obstructions when someone is choking. Unlike back slaps and abdominal thrusts, LifeVac uses suction to smoothly remove the object instead of using blunt force.
You use it after attempting back slaps and abdominal thrusts (if possible). It’s like a “safety net” for when all else fails. The device can be used on anyone that’s 22lbs or heavier – regardless of illness, disorder or other health-related condition. Clinical studies have proven LifeVac to be 100% safe to use in a choking emergency. Even better, you don’t need training or a prescription to use it. You can even use LifeVac to save yourself from choking!

Why Is It Different From Other Solutions?
Unlike back slaps and abdominal thrusts (which are more complicated, and can be dangerous – often resulting in broken ribs), the LifeVac uses suction – smoothly pulling the object upward instead of using blunt force. You use it after attempting back slaps and abdominal thrusts (if possible). It’s like a “safety net” for when all else fails.

lifevac vs dechoker
Both the Dechoker, $89.95, and the LifeVac, $69.95, have a plastic mask that provides a seal over the mouth and nose while suction is provided. The Dechoker looks like a large syringe, while the LifeVac’s plunger is shaped like a small accordion.
How to Use LifeVac (Step by Step)
Using Life Vac is easy: Simply lie the victim down and place the LifeVac over their face, then push on the pump handle. That’s it!
Life Vac creates a seal around the victim’s mouth, which creates a vacuum. In most cases, the object will be removed on the first pull – but you can repeat this process again if needed.
You don’t need to install or set anything up beforehand – like a fire extinguisher, it’s ready to use right out of the box. It’s painless and doesn’t require physical strength thanks to the vacuum design.
- Choose a Mask – The first step to using Life vac is to choose the appropriate mask size. Life vac comes with three masks of different sizes that are each designed for a specific group of people. Choose the one that seems to be the right size for your patient and attach it to the main part of the device by simply pushing it into place.
- Push – Using the handle portion of the Life vac device, push down gently and in a smooth motion.
- Pull up – Immediately following the pushing motion, you want to pull the device handle back up, creating an up and down motion.
Each LifeVac ‘Home Kit’ comes with everything you need to save a choking victim including a Life Vac suction device, an adult mask, and a child mask.
If you or a loved one spends lots of time away from the house, like at work or at school, you can also add the Travel Kit to your order – perfect for the office drawer, glovebox, and even your child’s classroom.

But more importantly to me, I feel calm having one around. When someone starts choking, you feel trapped. Your adrenaline rushes, and you wish you had an easy answer – a silver bullet that could make it all go away. Now that silver bullet finally exists.
