Sample Video: Dechoker course introduction

Be ready to respond when someone experiences a choking emergency in your home or business. The Dechoker is an anti-choking device small enough to keep with a first-aid kit. 

The Dechoker uses powerful suction to remove food from the airway. It works in seconds and is easy to use on yourself or someone else. Registered as an FDA Class 2 medical device, the Dechoker is approved to be manufactured sterilised and ISO13485 compliant. Dechoker can be used for up to two years in a home. It is designed for single use in public spaces or places of business.

When you consider the safety of your family, friends, workplace, and community, having the Dechoker on hand can give you peace of mind.

A life-threatening choking attack can happen to anyone, even you.
