New Product Alert: LifeVac

Did you know choking is the leading cause of death in children and accidental deaths in persons over 65? That’s why AED.US is now carrying the LifeVac. The LifeVac is a non-powered, non-invasive, single-use airway clearance device developed for resuscitating a victim with an airway obstruction when current choking protocols are unsuccessful. LifeVac has a one-way valve that does not allow air to enter a choking victim on the downward motion. The duration of the suction is minimal, which makes LifeVac safe and effective.
