LIFESTAT is an emergency airway device for use in respiratory obstruction or failure. This innovative new device facilitates a lifesaving method (cricothyrotomy) in emergencies when other efforts have failed. LIFESTAT is small and light enough to fit on your key ring, in your pocket, bag or emergency kit. If an emergency airway device is not at hand or in your hand at the site of an emergency, it is of no value to you or the victim. LIFESTAT is designed to be accessible and easily used in lifethreatening emergencies.
