Bag Valve Mask Innovation (In Progress)


Better sealing bag valve mask (BVM)
Medical Device Innovation Study

In emergency medical services, the need for bag valve mask (BVM) ventilation is a common occurrence. Although it has proved to be a vital piece of equipment, an unmet medical need in this area is a way to improve the ease of achieving an airtight seal between the mask and face of patients in respiratory distress to deliver maximum oxygen at consistent tidal volumes.
