Choking is the stoppage of the flow of air from the environment into the lungs. Choking prevents breathing, and can be partial or complete, with partial choking allowing some, although inadequate, flow of air into the lungs. Prolonged or complete choking results in asphyxia which leads to anoxia and is potentially fatal.

Dechoker For Adults
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 adult-sized unit is designed for ages 12 and up.
Dechoker for Children
It seems like a child explores its world with its mouth, which makes the risk of choking a continual concern. The Dechoker* for Children unit is designed for growing children from 3 years to 12 years old. It has a nose piece small enough to fit on a small child’s face but is powerful enough to dislodge debris from the airway.
There is also a Dechoker available for toddlers from 12 months to 3 years old

The Dechoker for Pets will feature 2 sizes that can accommodate all sizes of dogs from toy to large breeds.
