The Dechoker Device to Prevent Choking in an RV

Calling all RV fanatics! We have a small but important addition to your road trip gear that we think you should consider: The Dechoker.

Our innovative first-aid device has already saved dozens of lives around the world, and we believe it’s an ideal choice for retired seniors cruising around the country, as well as families doing some summer camping!

Here are some reasons we think you should consider adding The Dechoker to your RV:

  • It’s easy to use: The Dechoker was designed to be so simple that most adults can use it on themselves. If a person is choking, simply apply the face mask over the mouth and nose, and pull back on the plunger. This creates suction to remove the object blocking the airway. It’s as simple as that. Unlike other choking first-aid methods such as the Heimlich maneuver, there is no risk of injury using The Dechoker. Click here to learn more about how it works.
  • Seniors and kids are at an increased risk: Most RV users are seniors enjoying their retirement or families hitting the road with kids in tow. What else do seniors and young kids have in common? They’re both at an increased risk of choking. 
  • You’re a long way from help: When you’re out on the open road or stopped for the night at an RV campground, it’s likely that you’re farther away from emergency services than when you’re at home. After all, the point of RV life is to get away from it all! Unfortunately, that also means sacrificing quick access to life-saving first responders. The Dechoker helps you take emergency services into your own hands with confidence. Smaller than a standard fire extinguisher and very lightweight, The Dechoker is extremely portable and an easy addition to most RV first-aid kits. 
  • It’s affordable: At just $79.95, The Dechoker is easily worth the peace of mind and safety it brings to your family. We also offer full first-aid kits that include The Dechoker, as well as mountable cabinet cases and other accessories that might be the perfect fit for your RV. See all our options here.
  • It’s effective: Most importantly, our device has been proven successful in dozens of documented cases. We encourage anyone concerned about choking to educate themselves about traditional treatments such as the Heimlich maneuver, but we also think people should have every tool at their fingertips in the event of an emergency. 

Ultimately, we believe there should be a Dechoker device in every home, school, restaurant and vehicle in the world, but we are just beginning to stem the tide of choking deaths. Let’s at least start where we eat and relax and enjoy ourselves — in the RV.

We invite you to learn more about our innovative device by checking out our website further, and for those who enjoy summer recreation, be sure to read our three-part blog series on choking risks in the great outdoors.
