The demand valve is designed to resuscitate a non-breathing patient, or to provide assisted breathing with 100% oxygen on a conscious patient. To use for resuscitation, the caregiver simply presses the button on the demand valve, to inflate the lungs. When the button is released, the gases are expelled from the lungs through the exhalation (non-rebreathing) valve.
For the demand function, the patient simply needs to hold the mask to his mouth and breathe. When the patient initiates a breath, the demand valve will sense the negative pressure and assist the breath with 100% oxygen.
The low flow selections on the included oxygen regulator provide accurate low flow delivery from 0-25 lpm. The reusable venturi aspirator uses the oxygen flow to provide up to -400 mm Hg at 30 lpm for effective emergency aspiration of the oral/nasal area. The unit comes with a replaceable 8 ounce polypropylene aspirator jar.
The kit is housed in a highly-visible orange plastic case with an integrated handle. The case is designed to securely hold either a D (M-15, 425 liters) or a Jumbo D (M-22, 640 liters) oxygen cylinder. This lightweight case is buoyant and will float in water for a short period of time, allowing for immediate retrieval. The two-piece hinged door allows easy access to the oxygen regulator and demand valve, as well as the cylinder valve. Made of high-density polyethylene plastic with recessed stainless steel hinges, the case is impervious to corrosive materials, chemicals, and adverse weather conditions. Hinges, latches and the plastic case are designed to withstand rugged use and provide years of trouble-free service. They are guaranteed to be free of workmanship defects for a period of two years. When necessary, latches are easily replaced. An optional rugged yet lightweight Soft Pack Case is available (L040124).
