HiccAway is a safe hiccups cure for people of all ages and is made from plastics that are free from BPA, BPS, BPF, and BP-whatevers. Small children will benefit from the device if they already know how to drink from a straw. Patients with cancer, diabetes, gastrointestinal diseases, or neurological disorders, those who are undergoing chemotherapy or recovering from surgery, and alcohol drinkers are particularly prone to suffering from the hiccups and will find HiccAway an especially useful tool.
To stop hiccups with this tool, follow these 3 easy steps!
Step 1: Put the cap on the desired setting, either CHILD or ADULT. Note, the tab on the cap should be facing the setting you choose.
Step 2: Place the HiccAway into a glass of water. Note, the cup of water should be shallow, less than half full. If the length of the device is significantly submerged, it will lower the power of suction.
Step 3: Forcibly sip from the mouthpiece and immediately swallow, in one breath. Repeat 2-3 cycles without stopping.
Note, sip from the tube immediately after placing it in, you do not want the HiccAway to fill with water before drinking, as this will reduce the effectiveness.
HiccAway is a singulstat device (singultus = hiccups), that lowers the diaphragm while opening first, and then closing the epiglottis (the leaf-shaped flap in the throat that keeps food out of the windpipe). Doing so activates the Phrenic and Vagus nerves simultaneously, allowing the brain to reset and stop the hiccups.
Yes. Use the top shelf of your dishwasher to clean your HiccAway.
HiccAway is the best way to get rid of hiccups and it’s about as American as apple pie. It was invented in the USA, it has been designed in the USA, and manufatured in the USA as well. When you need to trust a product in the mouth of your child or loved one, it helps to know exactly where it comes from.

Dr. Seifi works with patients recovering from neurological injuries on a regular basis. They often suffer from hiccups during their recovery as a result of injury to the brain. Dr. Seifi actively worked for a solution, and after years of trying to simplify a method to stimulate the Phrenic and Vagus nerve simultaneously, he devised what we now know as HiccAway to help those suffering get rid of hiccups.
