About this deal

Our long term goal is to have “non-invasive hand held suction devices” implemented into BLS first aid protocol. If you choke for above ten minutes, then it's probable that you will suffer from brain death from which there is no recovery at all. In the last review (2019/20) ILCOR stated “while we recognise they have saved lives, there is not enough evidence to encourage or discourage their use”.

Wall Mounting Kit comes complete with LifeVac Unit, LifeVac Instruction Booklet, A3 Laminated BLS Poster, 1 Paediatric Mask, 1 Small Child/Adult Mask, 2 Medium Adult (1 test) masks, 1 Large Adult Mask, feedback form and 1 window/door sticker.This is where LifeVac® has saved hundreds of lives, when standard BLS has failed or cannot be performed.

Soft foods such as marshmallow (which then also swell and expand if stuck in the oesophagus) are also much harder to remove if a child does choke on them. If they are still choking, perform abdominal thrusts - watch this St John Ambulance video for step by step instructions. A spokesperson said: “If a user or member of the public has any concerns regarding the compliance of a specific medical device available on the UK market, we would ask that they report this to the MHRA. The negative pressure generated by the force of the suction is 3 times greater than the highest recorded abdominal thrusts.Being non-invasive means there are no tubes that risk pushing the tongue back, obstruction further down or oral damage. Our care service have LifeVac wall kits in all of our eating areas, we have used the device multiple times across our sites and LifeVac Europe have always replaced them free of charge as advised, great service! Leading first aid charity, St John Ambulance does NOT advise sticking your fingers down a child's or baby's throat when they're choking.

Choking incidents can happen to anyone at any time, not just young children, the elderly and people with medical conditions.Furthermore, as the device is primarily recommended for use in care homes or similiar environments where trained individuals are present, and as the choker would need to be laid prone, the LifeVac is not recommended to be used on yourself. We’ve built a strong working relationship with Hcsuk over many years, having used them to source, install and service our medical training equipment.

Having a LifeVac to hand for a healthcare professional to use can help to deal with choking patients in an easier fashion, and can be the difference between life and death. We can only imagine how many lives would have been saved had this device been more widely available since 2017. As a manufacturer we look for key values in a distributor some of these include honesty, reliability, commitment and reputation. We’d like to give a particular shout out to Phil, the technician / engineer who has been the consistent friendly face visiting our business to inspect and test our mobility hoists every 6 months.LifeVac® is a class 1 medical device, LifeVac® is registered and regulated by governing bodies such as the FDA, MHRA, TGA, CE and many more.
