Lifevac is an emergency home suction device that can be used to remove obstructions such as food or other inanimate objects from a person's airway. The device can be used for people of all ages should an emergency occur, and is available conveniently without a doctor's prescription. Lifevac uses a one-way valve that provides adequate airflow and minimal suction, making it both effective and gentle for general use whenever there is a need for quick obstruction relief.
The cost of Lifevac is $69.95 plus $9.95 shipping, for a total price of $79.90.
The first step to using Lifevac is to choose the appropriate mask size. Lifevac comes with three masks of different sizes that are each designed for a specific group of people. Choose the one that seems to be the right size for your patient and attach it to the main part of the device by simply pushing it into place.
Using the handle portion of the Lifevac device, push down gently and in a smooth motion.
Immediately following the pushing motion, you want to pull the device handle back up, creating an up and down motion.
Lifevac comes with a pediatric mask that is ideal for use on young children, an adult mask that is designed for the general public, and a practice mask.
Included with your Lifevac package is access to online training. This training will show you how to use Lifevac, give you tips, and help you learn about the device.
Each product comes with a printed instructions page.
Lifevac is made with durable materials that are trusted by medical professionals and health institutions across the country. The product can withstand both years of use and extended periods of storage.
When used in an emergency, Lifevac can be counted on to remove most obstructions. This includes pieces of food, coins, balloons, and anything else that may get lodged in the throat.
The resealable bag that each home kit comes packaged in is ideal for protection against water damage. It also works to keep all of the documents and the Lifevac parts in one place.
The kit is easy to carry on trips, vacations, or to simply store in the first-aid kit.
The product can be sterilized using dish detergent and water in your kitchen or bathroom sink.
Although the product requires a gentle pushing, it's important not to push too hard. This could hurt the patient's face and reduce airflow.
It's important to remember that just as you don't want to push too hard, you don't want to pull too hard, either. If you pull too hard on the handle during the upward motion, you run the risk of ruining the suction effect that the mask creates around the nose and mouth. This could render the device and your efforts useless.
Since the product is used on the mouth and nose, there is a risk of catching germs from other people if the device is not thoroughly washed and sanitized between each use. Germs can live on the mask of the device for various periods of time, so be sure to wash it in between uses.
The product uses a reliable valve that prevents air from escaping the mask while simultaneously stopping air from pushing any objects down the throat even further. It has the ability to generate over. 300mmgh of suction to gently coax the obstruction out of its position and free the airways.
