This will be a short post.
CCNEPal always goes over bag-valve-mask devices as part of the 2-day and 3-day class. We have decided to amplify the material we give students on this subject. We did some internet research and wrote an eight-page document about these important yet overlooked tools.
Acknowledgement of source material
Let me say, right up front, the primary source was a brochure by the Laerdal Corporation. This was excellent, but the original was written in such small text that it did not photocopy well. Also, most Nepal hospitals use less expensive bags from a Chinese source that does not supply a manufacturer’s brochure along with their bag.
and where would we be without YouTube?
There are several videos. One describes the procedure for assembling the bag-valve-mask.
It turns out, this is a popular topic. here is a good one.
There is a list of about fifty videos that describe various aspects.
