LifeSaver Manual Adult Resuscitation Bag
Manual Resuscitation Bags are an essential tool in first aid and emergency response. They are devices which allow for manual ventilation and oxygen delivery during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Through the use of a one-way valve and a resuscitator bag, Manual Resuscitation Bags enable a rescuer to use their own breath to oxygenate a casualty, as well as raise and lower the casualty's chest during CPR. In addition, these bags can be used in combination with supplemental oxygen for the delivery of higher concentrations of oxygen to a patient in distress. Manual Resuscitation Bags are easy to use, lightweight, and can be readily accessed during medical emergencies. All medical personnel and first aid responders should make sure they are trained and up-to-date on the use of Manual Resuscitation Bags.
A manual resuscitation bag, also known as a manual resuscitator, is an inflatable bag that is squeezed by hand to deliver air to a person's lungs. The bag is connected to a face mask or mouthpiece, which the person breathes through. The bag is also connected to a tube that goes down the person's throat and into the lungs. When the bag is squeezed, it forces air into the lungs. This helps to inflate the lungs and keep them open. It also helps to move blood and other fluids through the body. Resuscitation is an emergency medical procedure that restores the heart and breathing of a person who has stopped breathing or who has suffered a cardiac arrest. It involves chest compressions, mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, and electric shocks (defibrillation). The goal of resuscitation is to restore a normal heart rhythm and breathing.
CPR Resuscitation is a lifesaving technique that can be used to revive a person who is not breathing or has a weak pulse. CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The technique involves compressing the chest of the person to help move blood and oxygen through the body. It also involves breathing into the person's mouth to help them breathe.

1. See if the person’s chest clearly rises and falls.
2. Listen for escaping air, and feel for it against the side of your face.
3. Do this for no more than 10 seconds.
4. A person does not appear to be struggling when breathing. The breathing is quiet, regular and does not cause discomfort or pain.
Directions on How to Use a Manual Resuscitation Bag
1. Place the mask over the patient's face so that the apex of the triangle covers the bridge of his nose and the base lies between his lower lip and chin, creating a tight seal.
2. Make sure that the patient's mouth remains open underneath the mask. Attach the bag to the mask and to the tubing leading to the oxygen source.
3. Or, if the patient has a tracheostomy or endotracheal tube in place, remove the mask from the bag and attach the handheld resuscitation bag directly to the tube.
Important Note: During cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), however, using a handheld resuscitation bag to administer rescue breaths is less important than providing high-quality chest compressions. Lone rescuers should begin chest compressions first. After 30 compressions, the rescuer should then administer two breaths. When a second person arrives, a handheld resuscitation bag can be used to administer two breaths after every 30 compressions.
