The lifesaving anti-choking device for parents, carers and professionals
The vision of LifeVac came from a story that Arthur Lih, founder and CEO of LifeVac, heard a woman in a hospital weeping following the death of her young son, after choking on a simple grape.
The reason for his death was that the grape had become lodged in his windpipe and could not be dislodged. Once he heard the story he set out to invent an apparatus that could clear the airway of a child in the event of choking and save lives.Arthur, Dr. Brody, and a few close friends set out to bring LifeVac to the public by establishing a research and development facility located in Springfield Gardens, NY where they are producing the anti-choking device in order to bring the safest, simplest method to save a choking victim. Our goal is to save as many lives as possible throughout the world.
LifeVac South East Europe was established in 2017 to distribute this live saving technology in South East Europe. LiveVac is a business operated by EKYZ and is the sole authorised distributor for the LifeVac device.
The LifeVac is a unique device developed to address one specific problem, choking that is unrelieved by normal first aid methods.
Unfortunately, a range of individuals are at risk from choking, including children, the elderly and those with a disability affecting their ability to swallow. It is the only device on the market that addresses this problem.LifeVac came to close the “gap” that always existed after and/or in case of failure of Heimlich maneuver.
What was the “gap”?
Foreign body remained in the airway of the choking victim, completely blocking it, resulting to lack of oxygen which lead to almost certain Brain Damages, which in order to be avoided required use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
