Relax the restrictions on the use of Lifevac, the anti-choking device.
This petition had 1,115 supporters
Lifevac is a non-powered single patient, portable suction device that can be used when a person is choking and when other forms of first aid have failed to remove the blockage. Currently its use and sale is restricted by the MHRA meaning it can only be sold to health professionals. This means that the device can't be sold to schools and other places such as restaurants where choking can pose a severe risk. Lifevac has already saved 8 lives and by restricting its use, the MHRA are needlessly putting people at risk. The restrictions only apply in the UK and the device is freely available in other countries and many schools in the USA now have Lifevac.
