When a person begins to choke, virtually everyone begins to panic.

That's because nearly everyone has experienced the feeling of terror when an object becomes stuck in their airway and they can't breathe.

When this happens, it's not long before the person becomes unconscious. If the object remains, brain death is expected after just 10 minutes.

The DeChoker Airway Clearance Device (ACD) is a portable, user powered, hand-held suction device designed to be used in a life-threatening choking situation.

What's more, it can be used when the person choking is either lying down or sitting up, for example in a dining chair or wheelchair.

Every customer has a different requirement. Feel free to get in touch and we will work with you to help support both the people in your care, and the people that deliver it.
