Important Update: Airway Clearance Devices Information

Until there are increased clinical trials and robust research evidence to inform support from national bodies, including the RCUK, the use of these devices to support a choking situation cannot be endorsed.

Advice

  • Residents at higher risk of choking must have an assessment and management plan in place that all staff are familiar with
  • Speech and Language Therapy (SALT) services should be contacted to provide advice and a personalised management plan for the individual
  • Consider any consent or best interest issues for the individual

Consider the information available, evidence, quality of evidence/research and any associated risks before deciding to purchase or use airway clearance devices.
