Let’s start by telling you what Lifevac is

It is a suction device to solve choking situations. It is designed to suck up food and other objects that are blocking a person’s throat and airways, using a suction cup system .

We explain the main advantages of Lifevac

If you find yourself in a risky situation where someone is choking, having a suction cup device that helps you remove food from the choking person’s throat can be vital. This device has many advantages, let’s look at the most notable ones.

Works with all types of foods

Lifevac review and opinions
If the Lifevac food suction cup stands out for anything, it is that it can suction almost any jam, regardless of the type of blockage, which can help save lives very effectively.

In addition, when removing the object or food that is blocking the passage of air through the throat, with a slight gesture it falls into the suction cup, thus preventing it from re-entering the airways.

You can use it on children, it is also effective

Lifevac review and opinions
One of the main causes of choking in children is candy. The little ones are prone to choking in their early years and especially candy and chewing gum are the greatest danger factor. This device has a special mouthpiece for children weighing less than 10kg.

In addition, you can more easily remove even stuck gum. Of course, it is important to control the force you use when pulling so as not to damage the child’s throat.

Removes food from the throat quickly

Lifevac review and opinions
Another advantage of the Lifevac anti-asphyxiation device is that it allows you to eliminate the obstruction in a few minutes. With proper practice, you can assemble the mouthpiece in less than a minute, and remove it in about another minute to a minute and a half.

On the other hand, it is very important that you remain calm and place the person in the appropriate position to perform the extraction in the most effective way possible.

After reviewing the Lifevac anti-asphyxiation device these are our conclusions

Both this device and other similar ones can be very useful when it comes to saving a life in emergency cases. Yes, it is true that it is not enough to just carry it, you have to know how to use it and stay calm. I recommend if you buy it that you do some practice with it from time to time.

It is advisable to buy the model in the official store

As with most products, I will always recommend the official store. At no time am I going to recommend Amazon, Temu or Aliexpress, because you can find fake sellers and that is synonymous with problems. Furthermore, I recommend that you always save the confirmation email and the order number to avoid any possible problems.
