Dechoker

The Dechoker is an Airway Clearance Device (ACD) and has been developed for use in a choking emergency.

When a person begins to choke, time is absolutely critical. The average person is likely to become unconscious quite quickly, with brain death expected after just 10 minutes.

Using the Dechoker creates a powerful and directed suction to remove the object from the airway.

Dechoker can be used by almost anyone and requires very little instruction.

Using a handle to generate suction allows the Dechoker to be used when the person is lying down when in bed or on the floor. Or, sitting upright, perhaps in dining chair or wheelchair.

Placing the Dechoker over the mouth and nose creates a seal, with the tube sitting over the airway.

Placing a hand on the mask ensures it remains in place when the handle is pulled.

Pulling back on the handle creates the suction which is amplified by the chamber. The tube directs the suction over the airway ensuring maximum effectiveness.

Safety valves prevent air being returned back down the airway when the handle is pressed back down.

This allows a second attempt to be made which takes advantage of the air being removed on the first attempt.

Due to the nature of the device, Dechoker is a single use item. We replace any Dechoker device used for FREE
