It takes only a few seconds for a pleasant family dinner or an ordinary school lunch to turn into a life-threatening situation. The sudden blockage of air due to choking is a tragic incident that anyone can face. LifeVac, a patented lifesaving device engineered to clear airways efficiently, quickly, and most importantly, safely. Founder and CEO Arthur Lih launched LifeVac with an explicit aim: to put an end to unnecessary choking tragedies around the world.

Arthur Lih’s journey toward creating LifeVac took a decisive turn in 2011, when he was visiting a friend in a hospital and heard the heart-wrenching tale of a 7-year-old child who died choking on a grape. As a father, the story struck a chord deep within him, propelling him to act. Leveraging his inquisitive mindset and building skills, he embarked on the mission of inventing a product that would safeguard people from choking hazards.

LifeVac has come a long way since its inception, receiving recognition in leading medical journals, six of which are peer-reviewed. But for Arthur Lih, LifeVac is not just a business. It is an enduring commitment to humanity, a pledge echoed in the company’s mission statement: to end choking tragedies around the world in a simple, effective, and fast way. Arthur Lih’s advocacy for preventing choking tragedies has made him a notable speaker at community events and workshops, spreading the message far and wide.

Arthur Lih puts it succinctly: “Sometimes you have to do the impossible just to prove that nothing is.” This mantra fuels LifeVac‘s quest to save lives, no matter the age, whether 3 weeks or 97, because every life is worth saving. Thus, LifeVac not only offers a groundbreaking product but also provides peace of mind to families and caregivers alike, assuring them that a solution exists when every second counts.
