LifeVacs at Silverdale

Did you know that choking is the 4th leading cause of unintentional injury death in young children each year? One child dies every 5 days from a choking tragedy. In a choking emergency every second counts, you have roughly 3 minutes before the casualty will become unconscious, 6-10 minutes of oxygen starvation brain damage is probable and 10+ minutes of oxygen starvation the victim is likely to die.

We officially have FIVE LifeVac devices on our campus! This device is the ONLY portable non-invasive device that is registered and fully regulated by the FDA as a class II suction device and is peer reviewed by the medical industry.
