AIR VIVA RESPIRATOR/RESUSCITATOR

Typical Number in Hospital: Cost Bands: 1 References: 2

This is a bag, expiratory valve and facepiece for emergency resuscitation. The bag is inflated in its resting state so that after squeezing to inflate the lungs it automatically re-inflates with fresh air. Oxygen may be fed in via a narrow tube and a small valve. It is generally similar to the Ambu resuscitator.
