EMS World Top Innovation Award Submission
How often are patients either ventilated too fast, with too high of a pressure or too much volume?
Mercury's CPR-2 small adult bag with LiteSaver Manaometer offers an equation for successful ventilation. It provides a solution that addresses rate (integrated blinking light every 6 seconds), volume (smaller1000 ML bag) and pressure (manometer) all in one self-inflating manual resuscitator. Larger bag volumes may lead to: vomiting or aspiration, barotrauma, volutrauma or reduction in blood pressure.
Mercury's CPR-2 small adult bag with LiteSaver Manometer is not only easier to squeeze, it offers adequate stroke volume to help comply with current AHA and ACEP guidelines for recommended tidal volumes of 400 to 500 mL or 6-7 mL/kg per ACEP’s strategy to avoid overinflation, gastric distention and regurgitation.
The CPR-2 small adult bag with LiteSaver Manometer also helps streamline inventory, saving space and costs by not having to purchase multiple bag sizes! (Save space: Crash carts, Pediatric ICU, EMS departments & trauma bags). Several configurations are also available with a pop-off valve and PEEP valve.
