Every parent will understand what I’m about to say…
I used to worry about my baby dying all the time.
ESPECIALLY at meal time.
Whenever I would hear that little cough as my son worked to swallow his not-chewed-but-”mashed” food…
My heart would stop for 3 seconds as I prepared myself to jump into choking emergency mode.
One night at happy hour I was sharing about this fear with my best friend Amanda. She just happens to be a paramedic. (And a really good one at that!)
She told me that I’m not alone in feeling this way, and it’s important that I am prepared in case this happens because, I was right, choking is seriously deadly.
“In fact,” she told me…
“Unfortunately…” she continued, “one child dies from choking every 5 days in the U.S. alone!”
That certainly didn’t make me feel any better. To be honest, it actually scared me even more.
So I begged Sarah to tell me, in her professional opinion, what is the BEST thing I can do to get some peace of mind?
“What classes and trainings do I need to take to prevent this from EVER happening to my child? CPR? Heimlich Maneuver? I’ll do anything you tell me to do.”
Her response SHOCKED me. (And I’m guessing it will shock you, too.)
“Those things are great. And it’s always good to be prepared. First Aid can save lives.
BUT most parents don’t remember their training in the heat of the moment. AND those techniques aren’t 100% effective either.
You could wait for paramedics to arrive after calling 9-1-1, but you only have 4 minutes to prevent brain damage when your child is choking and our average response time is 7 - 12 minutes long.”
This is where I about fell to the floor. I felt so helpless.
Until she told me to watch a short video that would help me feel completely safe. And she sent me a link.
This video changed EVERYTHING for me. So, I’m sharing the video here with you, too.
It’s an airway-clearing device called LifeVac that can save your child from choking & suffocating anytime, anywhere—with NO special training and without being a trained medical professional.
And to date, it is 100% effective at removing choking blockages.
(While the Heimlich Maneuver only works 70-86% of the time.)
LifeVac has saved over 600 lives so far—and counting!
One of the reasons why it’s wildly effective at saving lives, I discovered, is because it’s SO easy for anyone to use to remove blockages in seconds.
Here’s How You Use It…
In most cases, the object will be removed on the first pull – but you can repeat this process again if needed.
And the valve in this device only allows air to flow ONE-way.
Meaning that there’s no risk of pushing the food (or other blockage) down further.
Christine is a trained EMT. Her son was choking on a bite of sandwich and the techniques she was trained to do weren’t working.
She did the back thrushes & Heimlich Maneuver and told her daughter to call 9-1-1.
That’s when she grabbed her LifeVac.
And her son, JD, is alive today because of it.
I found video after video. Story after story.
Life saved after life saved.
With just ONE PULL using the LifeVac.
As soon as it arrived, I felt an instant sense of relief.
Even though I haven’t had to use it yet, and I hope I NEVER need to, it brings me so much comfort to know it’s there. Just in case.
There were even some nice surprises I found out about after buying my LifeVacs:
… but even if that NEVER happens, it’s SO WORTH IT just to be able to rest easier knowing a choking catastrophe won’t ever happen to anyone I love under my watch.
I’ve also noticed my stress level at meal time has gone down TREMENDOUSLY. I’m no longer living in fear about my child choking.
Bottom Line: I’m so beyond grateful that my paramedic friend, Sarah, shared that video with me months ago. And I wrote this article to (hopefully) spread the word to as many worried parents—like me.
There’s now THOUSANDS of 5 star reviews of this product. Stories from people written hours after saving their child’s life, their life, or the life of another person, using LifeVac. And stories from people who once shared the same fear I did, now living with total peace of mind.
I tear up every time I read another one. It’s truly incredible to think about.
I wanted to write this update because since LifeVac has grown in popularity, some knockoffs have been introduced to the market and I want to do everything in my power to make sure you get the right one.
We are, after all, talking about saving your family member’s LIVES! And I didn’t want my article to lead you to a second-rate product.

Unlike the traditional Heimlich Maneuver, LifeVac is also effective on those with illness, disorder, medical, or other health-related reasons.
Consult a medical doctor before using LifeVac.
Can LifeVac be used more than once/Can it be reused?
The LifeVac device is a one-time use only apparatus. The product should not be used again for sanitary reasons.
IMPORTANT: If used in a choking emergency and has saved the victim's life, the unit should be discarded. If this happens we ask customers to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to fill out our Saved Life Report. After contact is made, we’ll gladly send you a brand new LifeVac free of charge.
LifeVac can be used multiple times if the obstruction is not dislodged on the first application.
Can I use LifeVac on myself?
Yes! One of the best things about LifeVac is that it can be self-administered (and is highly effective) during a choking emergency.
Do you have proof that the LifeVac will work and is safe to use during a choking emergency?
Great question and absolutely! Clinical studies and 3rd party testing all confirm LifeVac to be highly effective to use during a choking emergency.3 LifeVac has saved over 600 lives worldwide with no adverse effects.
LifeVac is also endorsed and has articles written by many accomplished medical experts.3
Is LifeVac FDA approved?
LifeVac in the USA is registered with the FDA as a Class 2 Suction Apparatus. As a Class 2 Suction Apparatus LifeVac cannot be “approved”. LifeVac adheres to the highest of FDA requirements.
Can LifeVac be used before the Heimlich?
LifeVac is intended to be used after choking rescue procedures have been performed are unsuccessful. We recommend the Heimlich as the first line of defense standard choking protocol.
Do I need a prescription to order LifeVac?
Thanks to our safe, easy-to-use design and proven effectiveness – you can now order LifeVac without a doctor’s prescription.
Does it hurt the patient when a LifeVac is used?
We’ve spent thousands of hours carefully designing LifeVac to be as comfortable and as safe as possible.
LifeVac is the world's only non-invasive airway clearing device. Other anti-choking devices are bulky and require you to stick a tube down the patient's throat, but not LifeVac.
LifeVac uses the power of suction and it's patented one-way valve to dislodge food or objects without the need for a long tube. This makes it easier to use and more comfortable for the patient.
When can I expect my order?
On average our product is delivered within 5-10 business days to anywhere in North America.
Can I get a discount if I order more than one LifeVac?
Absolutely! We created a special offer on this website with discounted bundles so you can order multiple LifeVac devices at the best price possible.
Remember, LifeVac is like a fire extinguisher – having one when you need it is critical. Instead of constantly remembering to bring one with you – have a LifeVac at home, keep one at school or work… so you always have one in case you need it.
Is there a money back guarantee and/or warranty?
Returns will be accepted within 10 days of receipt of the order. Return units must be unopened. Opened units may be returned but only for the reason of a manufacturer defect to the unit or masks.
