|About||LifeVac is a non powered, single patient, portable suction apparatus.|
|Mission||To save lives one breath at a time|
LifeVac is a non powered, NON-INVASIVE, portable suction apparatus (single patient) developed to bring the safest, simplest method to assist a choking victim.
The vision of LifeVac came from a story that Arthur Lih, Founder and CEO of LifeVac heard of a woman devastated in a hospital following the death of her young son. The reason for his death was that a grape had gotten lodged in his windpipe and the Heimlich maneuver failed. Once he heard the story, he set out to invent an apparatus that could clear an airway of a choking victim and save lives.
LifeVac is on a mission to bring this device to the public. We are located in the USA (New York) ,Europe (the UK) and Canada.. We strive to have LifeVac in homes, schools, disability organizations, restaurants, nursing homes, airplanes, etc. Our goal is to save as many lives as possible throughout the world.
