Today, LifeVac is recognized by charitable partners like the Red Cross and has successfully saved hundreds of lives (and counting). In addition to the LifeVac Home Kit ($69.95) and Travel Kit ($69.95 or $49 with Home Kit purchase), the company spreads awareness about the hazards of - and proper responses to - choking.
